Rise-and-fall patterns of guitar power chords lend this song plenty of convincing muscle, and Carnes has no trouble matching the nearly hard rock flavor of this five-minute epic. The slower, power ballad-oriented sections of the track, buoyed elegantly by electric piano and tasteful synthesizers, help fill that substantial playing time with compelling moments. Carnes rarely gets credit for being a thoroughly accomplished '80s music artist, partially because her signature song has provided so many great listening experiences and nostalgic moments of recall for fans of that era's golden age. In addition to the bonus points she should undoubtedly receive for the head-to-toe leather outfit above, Carnes belongs a tier or two higher than pop music history typically places her.
