Still brings lump to throat.


  1. I can see why. I never paid much attention to the lyrics back in the 70's. I was still pretty much in denial then, and preoccupied with more trivial pursuits.

    Listening to it now, I find myself wiping away the tears. She had a beautiful voice. Whatever happened to her?

  2. Fairly sure she is still singing though I never follower her this one was so poignant , like a stab to the heart.

  3. She was still recording at least up until 2006. I enjoy her music quite a bit, "At Seventeen" was not really representative of most of her work. It was one of the few songs she recorded that had any commercial success and thus airplay.

  4. Yikes... I had forgotten this one.

    oh.... I was never fond of it, though. :-(

    Back then I had enough troubles of my own, and wanted light-hearted stuff to break the gloom... So when this came on the radio, I always hit the off switch.


  5. I could never understand how she knew;

    "To those of us who knew the pain
    Of valentines that never came
    And those whose names were never called
    When choosing sides for basketball"


Many thanks to all who ever joined in the conversation and to those who took the time to follow my zig zag to a new life..
