Subject: Warm wind in her hair...

One Sunday I woke up to a song on the radio (we have wonderfully weird public radio in Canada) It was a song that touched me more than anything I've heard since Donovan, maybe. Or early Lyle Lovett, at least.

The chorus began:

At the age of 37 / She realized she would never / Ride through Paris in a sports car / With the warm wind in her hair...

But I missed the artist's name. Please, please, please... can anyone tell who wrote/sang this song?

this place has the lyrics. Marianne Faithful has sung it (among others), but I don't know whether she also has written it. Wolfgang

addition: Shel Silverstein is named as author of "The Ballad of Lucy Jordan" on a Marianne Faithfull site.

To anonymous, who started this thread: For your future info, I have had success in contacting the CBC to enquire such things of them. In fact now that they have a website, at http://www.radio.cbc.ca/ such information might be found on the web; and if not, the enquiry could be done by e-mail, to: cbcinput@toronto.cbc.ca .

(Although if you had found the answer through the CBC, the Forum would have missed out on a good song & website reference!)

Thank you, thank you, thank you, thank you.

I'm told it's too terminally mellow for a supposed blues player to do on stage, but I'm going to try anyway. I don't think I'll ever forgive Chicago for giving the blues such tunnel vision. Mississippi John Hurt (among others) could have done it and nobody would have thought it un-bluesy of him.

Robert Lee (in case the software makes me anonymous again)

Sheesh!

First I show up nameless, then the software decides that my words are so golden that they deserve repeating.

Never criticize software when it can hear you. Artificial Intelligence software has arrived, but it's a mean, vindictive intelligence.
