Halfway To Sanity:The Ramones
Halfway to Sanity is the tenth studio album by American punk band the Ramones. It was released on September 15, 1987, and the last album to featureRichie Ramone. Halfway to Sanity features the songs "I Wanna Live" and "Garden of Serenity", which were later remastered on the Ramones compilationLoud, Fast Ramones: Their Toughest Hits.
"A Real Cool Time" almost certainly features a melodic homage to Cheap Trick's "So Good to See You" from their 1977 In Color album. Joey and Cheap Trick shared a mutual admiration and they played Joey's posthumous birthday party show in 2001.
"I Wanna Live", the album's opening track, was on the soundtrack to the 2006 video game Tony Hawk's Project 8.
