  • Lyrics
  • This five-minute Fogelberg composition from his 1979 Phoenix album is heavy on production, but far from being a voyeur's fantasy - watching a woman while she takes a bath - it has a classical inspiration as is clear from the album's liner notes. The woman is Esméralda, and the lucky guy is Pierre Gringoire; both are characters from the 1831 Victor Hugo novel Notre Dame De Paris. >>
