I first heard this track on an alternative album-oriented radio station, and I liked it immediately because of those superb arrangements that went so well with the lovely vocal harmonies of Amy Ray and Emily Saliers, and you can also hear Jackson Browne singing in the background. Galileo was one of my favorite songs of 1992, peaking at #89 on Billboard's Hot 100 chart as well as at #10 on the Alternative charts; it's another of those songs that I thought deserved to be a bigger hit.
