Ballads: During an interview in 1992 with Canadas MuchMusic, Tap explained why its songs have become slower. Derek: "As we grow older and think about deeper things, we write more ballads. You want to have time for people to hear the lyrics, so you slow the song down." David: "Unfortunately that slows the lyrics down too, so youve got to wait a bit longer for the next lyrics to come along once you understand the previous ones." See also Just Begin Again.
