Notes: Gated, compressed reverb, in case you couldn’t find the beat. It’s more pronounced in the Verse than the Chorus, turning the cliche on its head, until the out Choruses and Coda, when it comes back, and stays – the better to rock the ages. Layered - more than just doubled or tripled - vocals add the sort of polish and hype that defined the 80s.
