A song about a place was Wichita Lineman also requested by Glen Campbell. Galveston was about a soldier from Vietnam, then MacArthur Park came first performed by Richard Harris then made into a disco favorite recorded by Donna Summers. Her version became his only number one hit record. The song is filled with metaphors about a romance gone bad.
These days Jimmy is sort of a song writing legend. He still writes songs and recently put out an album called Jimmy Webb Just Across The River. The recording studio was filled with stars like Billy Joel and other, singing oldies like All I Know. Nowadays you need a clean version of a song because all the songs are dirty. Recent junk like Celo Green’s Fuck You revised to Forget You.
