THE GREATEST OF ALL TUNES (G.O.A.T.) is a series of posts, producing my 100 favorite songs of all time. The master list is here, and I update it about every two weeks or when I have another 10 songs or so.
When my dad first heard this song, he said, “It isn’t about anything! The lyrics are nonsense! Who am I to disagree?
I just know I love it.
Further listening: Here Comes the Rain Again, and the criminally underrated soundtrack to 1984. An awesome record, way ahead of its time.
Covers: I’m starting with a beautiful cover by Allison Crowe and then a few other ones I like.
