Vai, who's always reserved track number 7 on every album for a guitar ballad, puts them all together on one collection, from "Call It Sleep" off Flex-Able to "Touching Tongues" off of Sex and Religion. The 7th Song features three bonus tracks, including "Boston Rain Melody," that came into being during a sound check at the Mothership in Boston.
