He's really country, but he was considered a folk guy too as many artists were of the day.  It's ballet song,

It is and I apologize now for its not really a ballet.  I tried to edit that before posting but my time ran out (I'm hurrying to post this now so I don't get locked out) to change that.  So Glen Campbell is the artist and the song goes a ways back I think 68' and its called "Dreams of the Everyday Housewife".  I remember hearing it a lot back in the day.  Glen Campbell was always on the radio and television.

A New Song:

When I saw you standing there
About fell out my chair
And when you moved your mouth to speak
I felt the blood go to my feet
 
Now it took time for me to know
What you tried so not to show
Now something in my soul just cries
I see the want in your blue eyes

Now it took time for me to know

Now something in my soul just cries
I see the want in your blue eyes
 
You told yourself years ago
You'd never let your feelings show
The obligation that you made
For the title that they gave

That other one was haunting me.

Is this one "Key Largo"?  I don't remember the artist, if it is...

On a morning from a Bogart movie
In a country where they turn back time
You go strolling through the crowd like Peter Lorre
Contemplating a crime
She comes out of the sun in a silk dress running
Like a watercolor in the rain
Don't bother asking for explanations
She'll just tell you that she came

She doesn't give you time for questions
As she locks up your arm in hers
And you follow 'till your sense of which direction
Completely disappears

Well, she was commenting on a post by Raf FROM A YEAR AND A HALF AGO!

Maybe she REALLY needs to refresh the page!  :jump:

Or she's really, really a fan of that album.    Meanwhile, we have a different song this month, and I've probably never heard it.

Oh I'm sure you've heard of it before WordWolf unless you weren't into listening to music in the 70's.

By the blue tiled walls near the market stalls
There's a hidden door she leads you to
These days, she says, I feel my life
Just like a river running through 

While she looks at you so cooly
And her eyes shine like the moon in the sea
She comes in incense and patchouli
So you take her, to find what's waiting inside
 
Well morning comes and you're still with her
And the bus and the tourists are gone
And you've thrown away your choice you've lost your ticket
So you have to stay on
But the drum-beat strains of the night remain
In the rhythm of the new-born day
You know sometime you're bound to leave her
But for now you're going to stay

No, not at all.  I don't even remember Al Stewart.

Al Stewart did some albums in the mid 70's.  Probably best known for Year of the Cat.  However,  Time Passages is another one of his songs you may recognise.  According to wikipedia YOTC received a lot of radio play on both classic rock and folk rock stations.  Alan Parson produced his music.   I guess he's an Aussie.  Anyway, for the heck of it and I'm into posting videos again here is Time Passages.
