Today's song is one of my favorites (aren't they all). 'Pretty Ballerina' and I had a rocky beginning. I heard it first as a teenager and I couldn't believe my ears. I thought it was the most ridiculous song I'd ever heard. But it stuck in my head (plus my tastes expanded)... So I decided to find out more about it. This was pre-internet days (for me at least...when did this all start?) and this song rarely makes it to the radio. It wasn't until after I bought Left Banke's CD for another song, 'Walk Away Renee,' that I found it. And it's been love ever since. :) How can you not love a song with the word obliged in it?!?
