I'm happy with my songs:
Ode to Billy Joe by Bobbie Gentry
and San Francisco(be sure to wear some flowers in your hair)-Scott Mackenzie.
Both of them very hippie friendly. I can live with that.

Sundown is a fantastic song. I could only dream of something that soulful being a hit on pop radio today. Think about it...

"Bridge Over Troubled Water" by Simon and G-Funk

And I agree with rnolan66 regarding "Sundown" by Gordon Lightfoot. That's a great song.

Sundown is a Native American gal and she likes it a little rough....
"She's a hard-lovin' woman got me feelin' mean!"

Gordon admitting the bottle is getting the better of him....
"Sometimes I think it's a shame when I get feelin better when I'm feelin' no pain."

Was Sundown real or fictional? And was she jailbait?
"Ya better take care if I find you been creepin' round my back stairs."

So every weirdo who comes on GloNo now is me?
Welcome aboard Saucy Jack!
This board needs more weirdos. Takes the pressure off!

Yeah...

"Woman In Love - Barbara Streisand"

Numero uno on both U.S. and UK charts. Not quite sure how I feel about it, but I'm leaning towards befuddlement.
