Easily one of the highlights of the uneven Byrdmaniax album, this classy folk-pop song is filled with a melancholy sense of longing and tenderness that is missing from much of the later-day Byrds catalog. The title reference is a metaphor for a mood, and the underlying sense of values and compassion is quite strikingly life-affirming. The sparse instrumentation and orchestral arrangement are perfect for the song's recording, and quite different from the rest of the album's somewhat heavy-handed production. Rarely performed by the band in their lifetime, it remains one of their lost classics. A fine alternate version appears in the 1999 Sony/legacy reissue.
