Something for Thursday
Returning to our ongoing song challenge, it's time for A Song I Never Tire Of. Here's one that I heard off and on for years on various oldies and classic rock radio stations, but never all that much...until two years ago when the song showed up prominently in the opening scene of Guardians of the Galaxy vol. 2. The song's main story is kind of quaint and old fashioned and maybe even a bit problematic--why would she spend her life pining for a man who can never love her back because "his life, his lover, his lady" is the sea? Heavens, girl, drop his ass and find someone whose head isn't full of Horatio Hornblower bullshit--but still, the song is incredibly catchy, and its bridge section is one of the best ever. Here is Looking Glass with "Brandy (You're a Fine Girl)".
