Melting in the Dark

MacArthur Park--don't laugh--is one of my favorite songs of all time. I love it's overblown lyrics, it's symphonic backgrounds, it's multiple key changes. I even like the way Richard Harris (known to younger folks as the original Dumbledore in the Harry Potter movies) croons, "MacArthur's Park"--adding the possessive.

The song was a number 1 hit in 1968, so I'm not alone in my affection. Give it a listen.
