I felt odd liking the song back when it came out, I guess because the vocals are so.....feminine...., but musically it’s spot on.
Feminine ... well, Al Stewart is Scottish. :)

There's a lot of that easy listening sound from the 70s that trickled into the early-80s that I'm certain I thought was garbage at the time. But remove the youthful "not cool" bias and you realize how amazing a lot of that stuff is musically.

There was a English folk revival in that time frame, that infiltrated a lot of American radio with an abundance of "easy listening."

Agreed. ELO is another band I thought was garbage back in the ‘80’s that is amazing to listen to now. They weren’t Zepplin or AC/DC so they sucked.

Music is more enjoyable when you get a little gray in your chin whiskers.
