Brilliant song, but since when is being in the minority some sort of wrongdoing?

Completely classic. Perfect in its own way. American R & B at its finest. But played too much everywhere. Bordering on cliche.

First heard this song when I was six years old.  It had such a groove - temporarily turned my attention from the Beatles and Simon & Garfunkel.  Also made me want to check out San Francisco.  Moved there 20 years later.

Reminds me of drinking beers in La Jolla, CA. Good enough for a 10 in that respect.

I got introduced to this song by my girlfriend after spending the evening sitting on the dock, wildly in love, staring at each other and the setting sun. It became 'our song'.

Three years later, the relationship was over. Going to France, leaving the madness behind, I stopped for a pizza at a restaurant in a tiny village in the middle of the French Alps. It turned out the place had live music that evening.

The band opened with this song...

Life's strange and beautiful like that I guess. :-)

Beautiful song..  The lighthearted whistle at the end belies the profound sadness of the story of this lost soul from Georgia...

Kindly note the song is about a guy who moved there from Georgia.  So, he ain't no native of The SF Bay Area. ;)

Interesting. Is it anything like Nu Or-LEENS? Nobody there uses that pronunciation unless it's for rhyming purposes in a song. Then, strangely, it's okay.
