The Raspberries: Fresh

Metal Mike Saunders, Rolling Stone, 6 July 1972

IT STARTS OFF with that unforgettable drum fill from 'Loco-Motion', now over a decade old, and then right into the opening chords from 'One Fine Day'. That's the intro of 'I Wanna Be With You', the single and opening cut from the Raspberries' second album. The lyrics aren't bad either:

If we were older
We wouldn't have to be worried tonight
Ooh! I wanted be with you

Total word count of piece: 342
