It was James Taylor, Bonnie Raitt, and Carly Simon that were the staples on our family car trips. I remember loving this song even when I was a young girl. I don’t love James Taylor’s voice (I know, I know…), but I love the lyrics and sentiment of this song. It’s very similar to the Bonnie Raitt song “I Can’t Make You Love Me,” but in a lighter way. It’s like Bonnie’s song is singing about breaking it off with a guy you’ve been dating for ten years, and James’ song is about a girl you just met a week ago.
The line “I’m undecided and you’re heart’s been divided” pretty much sums it up. And it’s a great line. And a great song.
