Birds Like Tender Babies In Your Hands

I know I’ve shown this clip before but it’s a well done version of Jimmy Webb’s Classic MacArthur’s Park. Mr. Webb was 22 when he came up with this masterpiece, I can’t even remember what I was doing at 22… This song has been ridiculed by many but musicians know the complexity of the arrangement. Even if you put aside the melody, the words alone are pure gold.

The three part triptych of sorts; a story of loss, a resolve to survive and a sense of completion make this truly a great love song. This too will pass
