This was the only major hit from the classic "Dusty in Memphis" record. No one can do this song like Dusty, she was great. Although this wasn't my favroite from that CD. I thought "I Can't Make it Alone" was the best song. It had great production and Dusty gave a great performance, highlighting the desperation as the song grew longer. This is my second favorite CD of all time, next to Carole King's Tapestry.
This song has been mentioned here before because I've commented on it, but it might not have had its own thread. I love both the song and the album. I think 'Dusty In Memphis' is one of the best records made by anyone during the 60s, right up there with the best of the Beatles.
EDIT: This is also one the prize pieces in my record collection. I have it on a white-label dj print in excellent condition.

In 2004, the song made the Rolling Stone list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time at #240.
In 2004 song became very popular again because it featured in a scene of the Quentin Tarantino film Pulp Fiction.
"But here I am again, mixin' misery and gin. Sittin' with all my friends and talkin' to myself. I look like I'm havin' a good time but any fool can tell, That this honky tonk Heaven really makes ya' feel like hell."
