Phoebe Cates - Paradise

I saw this record at the flea market last summer, but I didn’t buy it. And then for a week I kind of obsessed over it. When I went back the following Sunday to buy it, I discovered something…

Whoever the original owner was meticulously transcribed the lyrics in their school notebook, tore out the pages and kept them secured inside the sleeve.

It’s not a bad song, lilting, romantic and a touch exotic. Mediterranean if you will. It was 1982 and Phoebe was 19 years old.
