This song has always just cut so deep..


May 76
I'd just raced Carlsbad...
Stopped at Pismo Beach before heading up to Payslip WA
Got a couple rolls of quarters
Called a girl in Minneapolis I'd grown fond of
She was gun shy of getting permanent...
I sang her this song.....
She said, come N get me.....







Didn't work out well

I thought this was going to turn into a "Sylvia's Mother" / Dr. Hook or "Operator" / Jim Croce kind of call.

Must have been projecting. Or remembering. Somewhere in there. Sounds like it was at least a bit better for a while for you.

I can barely string enough words together to make a sentence, if it makes sense it's a good day.
I don't know if it's from harsh experiences, bad relationships or empathy, she sees a lot of hurt in life.

Post your photo - we want to critique you.

She's a beautiful woman. Sorry if she doesn't meet your defined standards of perfection.
Wow. That guy is posting offensive crap in multiple threads. To the cornfield he goes and good riddance.

Carly Simon is extremely talented and put out some awesome music. Why is anyone considering her by her appearance? She's a musician. And a damn fine one. The fact that she hasn't found a magical way to stay in her 20's to appeal to some overgrown 14-year old boys is not her problem.
