Comin' Back To Me by Jefferson Airplane

Album: Surrealistic PillowReleased: 1967
  • When performing this live with Jefferson Starship, singer Marty Balin almost always introduced the song with a reference to the Surrealistic Pillow sessions, mentioning Jerry Garcia as having played the guitar parts on the original studio version.
  • Grace Slick plays the recorder on this. (thanks, Mark - Hot Springs, CA, for above 2)

This song in and of ITSELF makes 'Pillow' a joy to listen to.Reed - New Ulm, Mn
A sadly restful song for a rainy Sunday afternoon in early autumn.Ekristheh - Halath, United States
This is my favorite song of all time. I think it is so beautiful. IMHO, I think it is about unrequitted love.Jessica - Gardiner, Me
This song was also in "Flashback" with Keiffer Southerlund and Dennis Hopper.Darren - Winnipeg, Mb
"It was a story about a breakup I was going through, and that situation where it's gotten into your head too much. Partially because somebody else is telling you that you're only hearing what you want to, and that puts you in a little bit of a tailspin."Victoria - Tacoma, Wa
You came to stay, live my way, scatter my love like leaves in the wind.
You always say you won't go away but I know what it always has been.
If only both Marty and the girl had been able to communicate, his feelings for her are clear in the song, she loved him too. Her life was never the same.

Great song! It was featured in "Without Limits," a 1998 film about the late legendary runner Steve Prefontaine.Barry - Greenville, Nc
