I was remiss in not posting this last week. Daryl Dragon, The Captain, passed away last week. I usually pay tribute to artists who pass, especially ones that mean so much to me. As long time readers of this blog know, I had a significant conversation with the man many years ago. I'd like to say it somewhat guided my chosen IT career (he was a huge proponent of technology) and while that's probably overstating the impact, it is a conversation I remember and recall regularly.
The song was the duo's last #1 hit, and they sang it in Spanish, too. Even though they divorced a couple of years ago (it's rumored this was to get Daryl better access to health care), it's still a beautiful love song, a throwback to a simpler time, even when it was new.
