Story about this misheard lyric by: Wisnu Aji

But, after I hear this song several days ago during Freddy Curci's time, there's no misunderstand between lyrics and the singer who singing this song. So, it is the only time I posting this song on this site. This time, Freddy Curci and friends came back on my playlist but also came another popular artists like Richard Harris and Johnny Farnham (early stage name of Aussie rock singer John Farnham who best known for his song "You're the Voice"). I posting a song by a band that formed by Kip Winger and friends on this site but with different title song. About this song: Titled "Headed for a Heartbreak", it became the band's best-known song to date featured on their self-titled debut studio album and later released as a single in May 1989. It reaching #19 on Billboard's Pop Chart and #8 on the Mainstream Rock Tracks. It is one of several progressive metal songs that gained popularity in Billboard's Pop Chart before Queensr├┐che's "Silent Lucidity" and later Tool's first single from their album, "Lateralus". "Headed for a Heartbreak" was also a pop rock ballad and usually features two minutes epic guitar solo coda lasting at 5 minutes and 13 seconds in length.
