Tonight's the night we'll make history, as sure as dogs can fly
And I'll take any risk to tie back the hands of time
And stay with you here all night
So take your seats and don't be late, we need your spirits high
To turn on these theatre lights and brighten the darkest skies
Here at the Paradise....

    General CommentI'm just guessing that the boys wrote this one out of boredom, seeing as how it goes to the tune and the general words of another song of Syx's, which was Babe. What's your opinion?

    General CommentMy bad. The song was actually The Best of Times.

    General CommentParadise Theater was a concept album. The Best of Times was the focal point of the album and AD 1928 and AD 1958 intentionally have the same tune as TBOT, to draw the focus to it. AD 1928 was optimistic, TBOT was melencholy, and AD 1958 was a tearful farewell. Much old-style stage theater incorporated songs from the middle into the intro and conclusions. Once again, Dennis DeYoung is the showman all the way.

    General CommentI know why-- on the Paradise Theater album, this song goes right into the next one, "Rockin the Paradise", without stopping, right in the middle of the word "Paradise".... a word that seems to show up in a lot of Styx songs...
    Yeah, the year 1928 was when the Paradise theater was built in Chicago, designed to last forever (hence the sarcastic A.D.) but it only lasted thirty years. A Deyoung metaphor for America in the late 70s/early 80s.
