After @Wondergirl's multiple sun songs (which we've yet to list) and the four "sitting on/in/by" tracks, this is another of Ray's serialized inspiration for songs. The "Where is/are/have" tunes. I count four (by order of personal preference): - Oh Where oh where is love ? - Where Have All the Good Times Gone - Where Are They Now ? - Where Did My Spring Go ? I like to note these seemingly coincidental and futile things because they inform us on the author's way of thinking. This guy often sees himself "sitting" to laze and reminisce, and he's often drawn to wonder "where" things he used to like in the past could be now, as if they've disappeared somewhere, but could be reclaimed somehow in a fantasy world. Regrets, absence, disappearances, elusiveness… It's a pattern, not a random coincidence, a hint at how his brain works and what engages his emotions – and as a consequence ours, the fans', the people who connect the most with his songs. I'm not surprised this track proves (slightly) divisive. It's Ray at his most melodic but I guess the lady duet factor can be confusing, or at least go against some expectations. I remember noting a bit of that baffled reaction towards his recent masterpiece from the Americana record A Place in Your Heart, a worthy candidate for his best solo song in my opinion, except he hardly sings it at all (the Jayhawks' own Karen Grotberg gets most of the lead vocals on that one, and it's a beauty). Agreed with @donstemple about the Brian Wilson's duet with his wife Marylin on Let's Put Our Hearts Together, I thought about that one too. I definitely hear that! Great, ahem… dare I say… catch ?
