Wow Kalamu. this is an interesting article. This is the first time I’ve heard this song. Still processing it. If made in 1975, this seems to have come out somewhat close to Mary Woodson’s suicide.

I think you are right about his appeal to women that it has nothing to do with his masculinity. It’s his perceived vulnerability while exposing his heart. I don’t know why its so sensual but it does make you connect (or feel connected) to him.

I’ve really been into him over the last four months and I’m more puzzled as to why then intrigued by the inability to feel that you know him even though you see him perform and hear his thoughts as related or not related in an interview. And at the same time he seems elusive, he comes across as a people person and a friend. Wow. I can’t spend too much time on this because it makes me a little crazy. 🙂

One of my favorite songs on the album. This indeed was a testominal apologetic song to mary woodson. Sounds like he recorded this in the dark or at least with dim lights, it has the kind of sensual eerie sound. I right off the bat knew it was dedicated to her, this album was cut a year after the incident. She wanted to commit and he was in the midst of the normal successful rock~n~roll lifestyle and didnt want to give it up.
