PRETTY BALLERINA |
I REMEMBER THE FIRST TIME I HEARD THE ORIGINAL SONG BY LEFT BANK. I REMEMBER THE DATE 10/31/91 AND I ONLY HEARD IT ONCE! 10 YEARS LATER I HEARD THE VERSION BY THE DICKIES IN A MUSIC STORE AND I FREAKED OUT! I BOUGHT THERE CD AND NO ONE COULD TELL ME WHO WROTE IT. NOW I KNOW! WHAT A GREAT SONG!
Haunting song, no matter who sings it how |
I remember the exact moment I heard this song (in its original version) come on the radio. I was 12 yrs. old and alone on a pier on a bay. It struck me as one of the most beautiful songs I'd ever heard. And it remains so.....Along with "God Only Knows." I think "Pretty Ballerina" has remained unappreciated all these years.
