Makes me think of my cousin David; recently passed, but, Syracuse-bor n , he loved this ... In his days in Wisconsin.

Had an awful crush on James Taylor when I was about 5. IKR. I used to carry around my dad's JT album cover. JT and Speed Racer. My sweethearts. And this is one of my favs.

Love this song; but ever since I've gotten here, I've been leaving Carolina in my mind.
This man is off his rocker.

I grew up listening to James Taylor his art is a dying one , his music makes me cry in a good way , brings back so many emotional memories good and bad , dancing and singing with my mother and the nights when I cried myself to sleep thinking my life was so bad but now that I'm older I wouldn't change a thing it's made me all of who I am inside . Life is what you make it to be I've realized your only as happy as you want to be thanks to James ! Your a true artist and I wish the rest of the world

JT - sounds as good today (without hair) as he did in '72 when he had a headfull!

My oldest son always played this song on our way to Topsail Island...my kids had such good times.

It's a feel-good song that brings a tear . . . remembering the times, and wishing I'd made more of them . . .

This has always been one of my fave JT songs. He played at my college around 1974 (yikes!) and put on a fantastic solo show. He had backup singers recorded on a big old reel-to-reel tape recorder which he operated with a footswitch while he performed. One of the best shows I've ever been to.

JT truly does transcend genres and ideas of "cool". A friend of mine who is a strong and proud black woman told me that she and her cousin used to hang out together after school and sing along with James Taylor songs. THAT's cool. :=)

Haven't listened to a James Taylor song yet that didn't make me feel like all was right with the world due to his wonderful, smooth voice and touching lyrics. A true showman and master storyteller. . . . .

It's tough to pick a favorite JT song (there are just too many great ones!), but this one would definitely be in my top 5!
