    I dont know why I find it jarring but I do. It could be as Eddie said he was waiting for Stevie while writing the song but I find that a bit strange....it has nothing to do with the song or the meaning of the song which I feel detracts from the song itself a bit.

    Alright touchy, just an opinion. What Im trying to say is - Waiting for Stevie, could have been like a working title but, in how i see it, it's Ed's experience of writing a song with Watt so - I guess i wouldn't have blinked if the song title was on an Eddie solo album but being it's on a PJ album, yeah...i just find it a bit wired.  Maybe feels a bit like less a collaborative approach to a song in my mind?

    I do LOVE the song. I LOVE the album. I LOVE this band, prob as much as anyone else here.

    Eddie talks about how he and watt created “Waiting for Stevie” while actually waiting for Stevie Wonder to join them at the studio. SiriusXM subscribers can watch the full The Howard Stern Show interview on the SiriusXM app.

    You at least got to see "Got to Give", and they haven't even played it again since then. But I hope that you get to make it to another show this tour where they do play WFS. Are you going to Ohana? That's my next show. I really think they will play WFS there.

    No, it actually fits. The protagonist of the song is "waiting" for that special piece of music that she connects with, that connects her to the outside world.

    Just like Ed was *literally* waiting for Stevie that day, the girl in the song is figuratively "waiting on a messenger" to deliver her past the limits of her own small-town existence. Who knows? That "messenger" might also be Stevie Wonder for this kid. Or it might be someone else.

    The title is something of a double entendre. It's not just a throwaway.

    Love this tune!  It's like In Hiding 2.0 and it rocks but....my only issue with it is...the title!

    I dont know why I find it jarring but I do. It could be as Eddie said he was waiting for Stevie while writing the song but I find that a bit strange....it has nothing to do with the song or the meaning of the song which I feel detracts from the song itself a bit.

    Just me???
    They came up with it while they were waiting...

    Black Dog by Led Zep doesn't mention a black dog you know...
    There is no mention of hills or going far away in Over the Hills and Far Away either.
    nor in Achilles Last Stand...how annoying
    Now why would you expect them to mention hills or going far away in "Achilles Last Stand"? :)

    Besides, the bigger issue with that song title is the missing apostrophe.
    I gather speed from you fucking with me.

    I hope you get it twice!  This song is ear candy and sounds amazing live.
