    Pretty folky

      Spaceman,
      It was their biggest hit. The lyrics were by Dory Previn who had issued a couple of her own albums. It is from The Sterile Cuckoo.

    Not to be a know-it-all but. . .I believe the Grammy winner “Guantanamera” was actually their biggest, but not by much. (That’s if you believe Wikipedia) I wrote about them on the GMC.

    Didn’t see your Saturday entries until today, Monday (I remember I got my notifications from WordPress on Sunday) and there this is. I only comment because it’s sooooooo weird how coincidences happen. I rarely ever think of “The Sterile Cuckoo” (maybe once a decade), but today I ran across not one, but TWO mentions of it. Kinda freaky. What are the odds? This one, of course, but earlier in a post on Facebook about LIza’s 72nd birthday today. Now if I run across another mention of Dory Previn today, I’m really going to be freaked out.

      im6,
      I remember reading there are no coincidences. Chesterton called them spiritual puns. I think they have a bit of the mystical about them. Everything has to align.

        Seemingly highly improbable events are actually quite probable. Things you learn in engineering school and more so in the power house. Haven’t woken up yet enough to explain. Though G.K.’s’ take is more insightful and may well be true.

        Spaceman,
        It is that probable events occur at the same time which seems improbable.

    “Sterile Cuckoo” (1969) Liza Minelli. A nice “little movie”, particularly if you were in college at the time. Filmed at Hamilton College in upstate NY. Lovely theme song!

      Jay,
      That was the year I graduated from college, but I don’t remember seeing the movie until much later. I haven’t seen it for years.
