Annotationen

Grace Slick brachte diesen Song von ihrer alten Band The Great Society mit. Ursprünglich hiess der Song «Someone To Love».
Monogamie oder wenigstens Treue sind das Thema dieses erfolgreichen Songs, der im Widerspruch zum Hippie-Ideal der freien Liebe steht – erstaunlich für einen der grössten Songs, der aus der Gegenkultur der 60er Jahre kam.
