I just listened to "MacArthur's Park."
So many years this song made me cry. Absolutely, I understood, "Someone left the cake out if the rain...I don't know if I can take it, it took no long to bake it and I'll never have that recipe again. Oh no"
I still like this oldie. Somehow, it is nostalgic, no longer painful. I have no idea when or how that happened. I am glad, though.
It is a dated song,as it should be.
It haunted me for years.
The haunt is gone.
