Another Sunday bonus, and today I’m featuring James Taylor.

1981 wasn’t his best year, as “Her Town Too” is (supposedly) about the breakup of Taylor’s marriage to Carly Simon. JT has stated that no, it was about “the ex-wife of a mutual friend.” Okay, maybe. His manager Peter Asher was going through a divorce at the time, and Taylor and Simon’s divorce wasn’t official until 1983, but the signs were all there, and James Taylor rarely writes except from the heart. It’s a heartbreakingly beautiful song. Here Taylor sings it with JD Souther.
