Facts about "Third Stage"
  • #5 of top 5 albums of 1986
  • Peaked #1 on US music charts (1986)
  • First Boston album to use the Rockman (Tom Scholz's invention)
  • Gerry Green was the first person outside of the band to be given co-writing credit (for Can'tcha Say) I Think I Like It was originally written by Jon English. At the time of the release of Third Stage, Jon English had not recorded it. He did however, record and release it in 2000 on his Live & Learn album
  • Jon English is not the actual name of I Think I Like It writer -- it's actually Jon DeBrigard. Tom did not know his last name and could not track him down, so he used the last name English since Tom apparently thought he looked English
