Deep romantic masterpiece with wonderful lyrics and impeccable vocals. Nothing less than wonderful!
An intensely personal number written and beautifully performed by the late, great Gene Clark.
Not even The Beatles could pull off harmonic rock as well as The Byrds.
Let it be known to everyone within five miles of his recording studio that Jack Black does not need a microphone - xandermartin98

It is absolutely tragic that the 11-year olds who make up most of the voters here at Top Tens have no idea who he was, and have never heard a single song he performed.
This Ennio Morricone song from the movie "Cinema Paradiso" gets the Jackie treatment on her album "Songs from the Silver Screen." Also check it out on Jackie's PBS Great Performances DVD "Music of the Movies." Splendid work. - BobG
Good song, but it's not the Moody Blues! It's by Justin Hayward and John Lodge AKA 'Blue Jays', who were two-fifths of the band. The song would no doubt have been even better if it had featured on a full-band follow-up album to Seventh Sojourn, or if they had at least invited their inspirational keyboard wizard, Mike Pinder, to participate. However the band unfortunately decided to have a rest and go their separate ways for 5 years. This was one of the songs made during that 'sabbatical' - almost a Justin Hayward solo effort. Why they didn't subsequently bust a gut to get Pinder back is a mystery to me - never the same without him.
The Moody Blues' long-term exclusion from the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame is a true travesty. This one is really only Justin Hayward and John Lodge, but the resulting spare arrangement highlights Justin's voice beautifully.
