I have no idea but that is a most interesting question.

No I don't think we could have realised. At the time, I remember being in awe of the song, the sound, the video, but there was no thought of whether it would last, or influence anyone (that I knew of).<br />

How can you tell what songs of today will influence the songwriters of tomorrow?

I doubt many realized the influence this song would have when it was released. All these years later and it is still being covered by artists and being used in various forms in ads and as bumper music. I've even heard it in the background of some traffic reports.
