Along with MOTP this song has song many nuances every time you listen to it, it feels like the first time. The piano is incredible (especially the solo) and the lyrics are incredible and inspiring. "Best, you've got to be the best; You've got to change the world; And use this chance to be heard; Your time is now. "
