    In My Life

    (David Courtney/Leo Sayer)

     

     

    Leo Sayer recordings

    Warner Bros. WBS 8043 (SAA6687)S

     

    Leo seems to channel Janis Joplin in this shrieky, ostensibly introspective rock elegy, bemoaning the protagonist's bittersweet life-to-this-point with a battery of cliches.  When he sings "I am a lonely, lonely man", it is curiously reminiscent of Paul McCartney's "Maybe I'm Amazed".  This side B to "Long Tall Glasses (I Can Dance)" was never a hit, although it inexplicably found its way onto The Show Must Go On:  The Anthology and You Make Me Feel Like Dancing & Other Hits.
