If there was one song that accurately conveyed the depression and melancholy of the early-'70s post-Woodstock malaise, it was this song. Moving like an almost Broadway-inspired ballad, the feeling of weariness and fatigue is palpable. Hazlewood's use of minor-key, almost folksy changes is nothing revolutionary, but his blending of the melody is full of craft. The lyrics are about being lost in love, with more than a hint of depression. The Hollies' recorded version provided that group with a much-needed early-'70s stateside hit. Hazelwood went on to work with Van Dyke Parks on his Orange Crate Art album, with Brian Wilson.
