Sappy Saturday #6

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?!?
