I just went to San Francisco over the weekend. Every time I look at the Golden Gate Bridge (which I have never actually crossed, though I’ve ridden under it in a boat) I think of the city on the other side of it and of this song. I’ve gotta go there–everything grows there! And when you get high on a mountain, it snows there.
Note how cute these guys in the video are! I haven’t done my research on it yet, but I highly doubt they’re the members of the Ohio Express who actually recorded the song. At this point, the Ohio Express had a highly weird “line-up,” if you could even call it that. I think this song was more or less done by the musicians who would go on to be 10cc. Anyhoo, this is the Ohio Express at their most adult contemporary. I think it rocks.
