I realized that I posted this entry without music. Lately I've been listening to my Dillard and Clark CD, so I'll post a link to a few songs from that album.
"No Longer a Sweetheart of Mine" is not by Gene Clark, but it has been going through my head these days, so let's begin with it: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=0mQtl70ghXw
"Why Not Your Baby" is also by Clark, and it's the saddest song in the world: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2TQ6PYS2Q0I
I'll finish with one of Dillard and Clark's gospel numbers: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=AnxEGjK-XVU
