Fire and Rain - James Taylor, 1970.
There was no one more wonderful and cool in 1970 than James Taylor, 22 years old, just a few years past a ninth month hospitalization for major clinical depression and barely a year after finally kicking heroin for the last time during another hospitalization. This song, the most popular one he would ever pen, was written about his first stay in a psychiatric institution (1966) and the later suicide of a friend—Suzanne Schnerr—he met while staying there.
And also, consider this: when he takes off that afghan/shirt thing, underneath it he’s wearing a sweater vest. That’s how cool James Taylor was in 1970.
