Most of it's boring

Misheard lyrics

I have absolutely no idea how this happened, or why I'm forced to suffer so, but earlier today I was thinking about England Dan and John Ford Coley's I'd Really Love To See You Tonight. I didn't like it back in the '70s when it was released, and my opinion hasn't mellowed much over the intervening years; even as age and fatherhood have turned me into a sentimental old fart.

I recall that the lyrics included the line there's a warm wind blowing the stars around. Which doesn't make much sense really.

Except not. The actual lyric is there's a warm wind blowing, the stars are out. While I freely admit that this makes more sense, I think my version's more poetic.

If only for the fact that it makes less sense.
