In My Room

In My Room by Sagittarius from the 1969 album The Blue Marble

Most of us are familiar with the Beach Boys' harmonies.

In the Sagittarius version, it's the counterpoint - the string arrangement - that swoops in, luscious and unexpected. When I listen to this song, I hold a little breath in anticipation of those strings, like waiting for a first date to slowly, slyly slip his hand over yours in a dark movie theater.
