T his gold-selling single, featuring two songs from the triple-platinum Live at Budokan, helped put Cheap Trick on the US map. Personally I prefer the original studio version of “I Want You to Want Me” from In Color, but this live version will do in a pinch (it’s simply too good a song to hold down in any incarnation). And my apologies to Judas Priest - apparently, Japanese fans do sound like seagulls fighting for a clam. (And I apologize to Japanese fans if it seems I’m suggesting there’s such a thing as a good-sounding crowd in any country.) The B side, “Clock Strikes Ten,” remains a concert staple to this day, and also originally appeared on In Color. This song actually benefits from a live reading, since it’s way cooler to hear them say “Imagine what we’re doing tonight, etc.” on stage.
