A Lover's Concerto - The Toys

by Dick Mac

I don't remember if it was during the the Summer of 1965 or 1966 that this song seemed to be playing all day, every day, from a radio in the window of an apartment in the projects where I lived. The song was popular with the adults, too (even the adults who didn't otherwise approve of"colored" music).

The melody is an interpretation (OK, a nearly direct lift) of Bach's "Minuet in G major."


Thanks to the amazing NN Maddox for the memory.
