This song is about Lee Michaels seeing his ex-girlfriend having an affair with his best friend. Lee Michaels was born Michael Olsen in Los Angeles in 1945. He had two Hot 100 hits- this was his first hit- the follow up ” Can I Get A Witness” just cracked the Top 40 at #39.
This song is about as perfect as one can get. The drum and his singing put it into orbit.
This might show up on your little endeavor. A CB fave.
Awesome song! That voice doesn’t match that face.
