CAFFE` LATTE` PRESENTS
A countdown of the 200 songs possessing the best lyrics of all-time. A playlist on spotify will be added at the end of the week.
FIRE AND RAIN
“…I walked out this morning
& I wrote down this song,
I just can’t remember
who to send it to...”
James Taylor's breakthrough hit was "Fire And Rain". Issued in early 1970, the song deals with the suicide of a close friend and the protagonist's personal struggles.
The track was lifted off the American singer / songwriter's 2nd album 'Sweet Baby James'. In America, Canada and Australia, the ballad reached the Top 10. Taylor drew inspiration from his personal life for the lyrics.
As new songs are covered on this blog, a definitive version will be added to a spotify playlist. Find it and the other Caffé Latté playlists at:
