Music Monday: Hard not to like Goodbye Girl by David Gates

Posted By on October 23, 2017

I don’t know many baby boomers who came of age in the 1970s who didn’t enjoy David Gates, be it as a part of Bread or solo. Most albums and his music will no doubt lower ones blood pressure a bit and relax even the most uptight listener.

Both Brenda and I pause a moment whenever his music is played; I did exactly that the other day when The Goodbye Girl played on my Thumbprint Radio Pandora stream on my iPhone and After Shokz Titanium headset. Nice and soothing.
