Hmm, Jimmy made MacArthur Park too eh. My memory of that one is from Richard Harris (the actor)'s version on his album “My Boy.” TBH, even at 8 years old I was a puzzled by and a little skeptical about these lyrics:
Someone left the cake out in the rain
I don’t think that I can make it
Cause it took so long to bake it
And I’ll never have that recipe again
In the early days of the internet, they were voted #1 for worst song lyrics ever. They can’t be the worst ever, maybe just the funkiest/weirdest in the middle of an epic melody. Anyway, here’s SCTV’s version of Richard Harris redo-ing "MacArthur Park."
