  1. I may be the only human being alive who understands the baroque charm of MacArthur Park. Also, Roger Whittaker is way underrated. Slim Whitman, too.

  2. I aver, MP, that I had overlooked the baroque charm.

    Someone left the cake out in the rain…yeah man, there it is.

  3. MP is onto one of the hidden treasures of the 60s

    sadly the sound engineers/producers of the time recorded things so “bright” to compensate for AM distortion and poor speaker quality that some recordings of the era are jarring on modern playback mediums

  4. Oddly, the only one Weird Al has spoofed is MacArthur Park, with the brilliant Jurassic Park. Regarding #7, I remember my dad telling me that Sonny couldn’t sing to save his life, but people put up with it so they could hear, and see, Cher.

  5. The last time Sirius XM gave away the milk in the hope I’d buy the cow I clicked on the 70’s channel. If I was hoping to never again hear “Night Chicago Died”, “Seasons in the Sun” or “Muskrat Love” I picked the wrong time to tune in.
