Just Too Many People

Album: Melissa (1975)
Charted: 30

Songfacts®:

  • This single is the follow-up to "Midnight Blue," and it did well, reaching #30 on the Billboard Hot 100. It addresses the irony that the more people there are, the more lonely people there are, as it's hard to get to know anyone in a large crowd. >>
