  • Jennifur Sun from RamonaLove this song.
  • Obbop from OzarkBought the tune on a 45 rpm vinyl record even though rock was my music of choice. Something about this ballad drew me in and has kept my attention over the decades. A lovely tune that I haven't heard on the radio for many years as it fades into obscurity. YouTube still offers a listen for the curious. Enjoy!
