Song of the day: Glen Campbell- By The Time I Get To Phoenix

by the time i get to phoenix campbell

In 1965, Johnny Rivers released a song that was written by Jimmy Webb. The song was inspired by the breakup of Jimmy Webb with Susan Horton. Earlier, MacArthur Park was written about their happy times together. Two years later, in 1967, Glen Campbell decided to cover it for his album (which has the same name). However, if you wish to follow the song literally, don’t do that! It’s impossible, and as Webb explained: it is some sort of dream. The song would be a hit in the US country chart (number 2) and number 26 in the general chart. Enjoy
