Gorgeous Stevie at the premiere of ‘Twister’ on May 8, 1996

hen I was asked to do a song for the movie ‘Twister’, I had my friend Rebecca read the script. She then gave me the “Reader’s Digest” condensed version so I could decide whether to do it or not. As she explained it to me, I realized that this really was… MY story. It was about people who had extreme jobs… like chasing tornadoes, or being in a rock band. Anyway… I really handcrafted this song for the movie. Unfortunately, if you saw the movie, you missed the song… and you certainly missed my message. So I decided to give you the original demo, recorded March 10, 1996 on a 4-track Tascam by my assistant extraordinaire, Karen Johnston. I was living in a beach house overlooking Sunset Boulevard and the Pacific Coast Highway, and beyond that, always… the ocean. When I decided to put this in the “box set,” I called Jesse Valenzuela and he put some “vibe” mandolin on it. I love this song. I hope this time… you will understand it
