It’s a night for love songs. It’s not that there’s anyone to be playing love songs to. I’d consider volunteers though. It’s just one of those nights. It’s beautiful out – hot and we’re not yet having the forecast thunderstorms. And I’m deeply happy tonight. That makes a nice change.
My plan was Frank Sinatra singing “I Took a Trip on a Train (and I Thought About You)”, but there’s no YouTube of it, and I don’t have an mp3 file of it yet either. This is so high up on the list of second-best that it’s practically a tie. Cass Elliott sounds just lovely on this. I’ve never heard anyone sing it better, and I’m not sure I ever heard her sing anything else better. There’s just a still of the album cover by way of video – close your eyes while you listen and dream a little dream of someone special.
