Not to be confused with the 1985 song of the same name by The Cure
, this slightly jazzy track was written by Charles Manson. For a man who had spent most of his life in and out of institutions, Manson was quite talented, and had he not been let down by record producer Terry Melcher, he might well have forged a successful career in music rather than become notorious as the man who killed the 60s. "Close To Me" shows his softer side.
