Comin' Back to Me
Oh hell, I don't do this usually, but if you can, go listen to this. I have always counted it as one of the most lovely and underrated of songs, Comin' Back to Me. Is it a ballad? I don't know. It's sad. That's good enough. It starts...
The Summer had inhaled and held its breath too long...
In my whole life I have never heard this song played on the radio, not even a few days ago when its author died.
It was written and sung by Marty Balin, the fifth most talented member of the band Jefferson Airplane. Which says an awful lot about that group.
And a little something about me, who would rank them.
It's not a contest you know.
And death is not a victory or a defeat.
