It's been over 20 years since Rockit, and I still don't understand it.

On the other hand I'm waiting for delivery of his new Joni tribute. I heard some of it online and it was brilliant.

Rahul: "Rockit" was just...fun... nothing to understand :) I still remember being mesmerized by the video.

Scout: That'd be Herbie Hancock, not JOHN Hancock. We are not *that* old.

TR: Amen.
