I never knew all the words to this song, I just kind of found myself staring blankly at the words disappearing on the screen.Wow, what a moving song.
I really don't think they write songs like that anymore. I mean, ones that have a kind of narrative. And this song has a particularly clever twist using a change of pronouns. By the way, thanks- as always- for your comments.
And is it David Gates and Bread or just Bread? Hmmmm.I couldn't sleep last night because of this song.Kept playing over and over in my head and I started making up my own verses for it. What a night.Oh what a freaking mess about that Turkish wedding and the groom with the AK-47? When I was in Bosnia they did the same things at weddings but usually with a pistol.
It began as just "Bread" and then it became the longer version. I suspect some feud in the band caused the clarification. A friend of mine and I were just talking about that wedding disaster and it may surprise you to know it has happened in the past but not on quite that scale.
Always great to hear from visitors to Nomadic View. What's on your mind?
