Mary MacGregor was pretty close to a one hit wonder- she had one hit which barely hit the Top 40- “Good Friend” #39 in 1979. This song brings back bad memories- of the winter of 1977- getting up for school turning the radio on for a half hour or so before leaving and it was guaranteed for a couple months that every morning you’d hear two songs “I Like Dreamin'” by Kenny Nolan and “Torn Between Two Lovers”- bad awfulness. Even Mary MacGregor would say she hated this song. It was co-written by Peter Yarrow of Peter, Paul and Mary.
