“That voice. That orchestration. That bit where it starts to really gallop about 4'50" in. AND THAT IT IS TOTALLY BONKERS.”

Tribute to the Late Richard Harris and his performance of Jimmy Webb's 'MacArthur Park'. Shot actually in MacArthur Park, Los Angeles early one May morning whilst on holiday in 2007. One of the classics. Now where is my cake ?   9

The very day one writes something as beautiful as this, there's an incredibly violent storm that falls down from the sky on his head, splices him in two, then he becomes two awesome tunesmithes who in turn write things as outstanding before becoming four and penning otherworldly stuff and become eight, etc, and so on. I just wanted to make sure you were actually reading.
