That was the song that first brought Dar to my attention. They played it on the radio while I was driving home one night and I had one of those "Whoa, what was that?!" moments. I later realized I had heard a couple of her gentler ballads earlier (which I have learned to love since) but they had failed to grab my attention. It's usually the up-tempo stuff that gets to me when I am not otherwise paying attention. It's probably her most played song, although her long-time fans tend to prefer earlier stuff. Just had another such moment week before last: Amy Correia's new song Powder Blue Trans Am.
Ain't praying for miracles, I'm just down on my knees
Listening for the song behind everything I think I know
And everything I think I know is just static on the radio.

Saw Dar again in a long, great show at Symphony Space in NYC, last Thursday. Full writeup here. I also saw her last June at the Clearwater Festival in a 1-hour set.
