Glorious stripped-down version of Christopher Cross's "Sailing" you've likely never heard before

My dad was a preacher as his main profession back in the day.

It sounded like the version I’ve always heard. I went to YouTube and searched out the original and I really can’t hear a difference.

Even the live concert clips I listened to sounded pretty darn close to the original.

That isn’t the best example

Nothing is plugged in. They even left the UK three pin plugs on top of the equipment, just in case it wasn’t obvious enough.


I bought the 45 and on the way home I was asked, “so… do you know what a ‘centerfold’ is?” And, thanks to field porn, I did.

As for Christopher Cross’s “Sailing” – whenever I’m riding a bike (which hasn’t happened in a long time) this song always goes thru my head. When I was 9 or 10 and riding my bike a lot (more than I had been, anyway) there was a Huffy commercial that used “Ride Like the Wind,” and I rode a Huffy, and I couldn’t ride without thinking of that commercial (especially in the late afternoon, on hilly terrain*, as the ad depicted). Somewhere along the line, for some reason, that morphed into “Sailing”.

(Ah! There it is…)

*Well as hilly as it got in North TX, anyway
