The Stories Behind Tom's Songs

Power (Strength In Numbers)

"We were playing the Park West in Chicago in 1981-82. I went out for a walk before sound check, looking for a pair of pants or something, and I came across a crowd staring up at the top of a small building. Some poor guy was on the ledge about to jump and, like a chorus of crickets starting up at night, the crowd began chanting 'Jump ... Jump!' Man, I'll never forget that. That's where the line came from: 'People do some strange things when they're all together they wouldn't even dream of by themselves'" - Tom Cochrane
