LITTLE RIVER BAND - REMINISCING
Good, clean, wholesome fun. Easy rock. This song, itself sounding like a long-lost, affectionate memory, is the sound of some prom I never went to because I wasn’t born yet. But if I had, I would have worn a chiffon dress and danced all night under a slow-turning mirror ball.

The deeply meaningful lyrics about life, love and everything in between. The music that will haunt you for days and will be on repeat in your head for weeks at a time. There is just so much genius and so much talent in this group that I can’t even wrap my mind around it. I just have so much love and admiration and respect for them.

We met on a rainy evening in the summertime

Still I got nothing to show for it
