Jeff's Jukebox: B-1
B-1: "When Smoke Gets In Your Eyes," The Platters
A song that is particularly appropriate today, as Sacramento and the Central Valley is covered by a layer of smoke from the numerous wildfires currently raging. Driving into work this morning, many cars had their headlights on, despite the sun being out and there not being a cloud in the sky. Think of it as "under a blood orange sky," and you get the idea.
In any event, this is a great, wonderful song. I think the first time I heard it may have been in American Graffiti.
