Q: Ok so was "Extraordinary" written about "Sandy", Rockaway & the Harbor Light?.......
A: Sandi, thanks for asking. It is about Breezy and the Rockaways. A few of us in the band are from Breezy and our lead singer/writer penned it the morning after the storm. His family home emer down and his mom was on TV and that is her voice at the opening of the tune. the harbor light was his reference and we recorded it in one take about 2 weeks after the storm....thanks so much for asking and all the best to you!
