A study in unconscious cruelty
I spent a good part of today trying to remember what was significant about the third of June. Was it somebody's birthday? Was I supposed to be doing something?
Then I realised:
It was the third of June, another sleepy dusty delta day.......
Actually I'm quite surprised Google didn't mark the day with a doodle. Perhaps the'd done it in a previous year.
Anyway, here in a recording originally made for the BBC in 1968, is Bobbie Gentry. The clip cuts off before the instrumental play-out, but otherwise it's an excellent version.
