The least known song from The Stranger is probably "Get It Right The First Time."   It is an upbeat, funky, Latin-tinged, disco-like song; just a nice bit of fun.  The song opens with Liberty Devitto and Doug Stegmeyer laying down a funky drum and bass line, and then Richie Cannata comes in playing the flute.  The song is catchy and the bossa nova type beat is irrestible. Thematically, the song is about taking a chance on making a good first impression with someone.  You have to seize the moment and make the most of your opportunity because you may not get another.

This song has the "Latin energy", very fun to play on drums, i will try it, thanks.

This song was one of my earliest attempts at charting drums almost 4 years ago. It was pretty good but missing a tone of ghost notes so now it is spot on and should be extremely fun and challenging for all :)

While I never wanted this B.J. song in my library, I'm glad it's now there. Fun stuff. Thanks to all involved!
