The first time I heard this song, I was on my way home after a too-much-of-everything weekend. Driving along an empty highway late at night, I came into range of a beach music station just as the DJ cued "A Quiet Place." It was the perfect song for the occasion. It's nice to be able to hear yourself think once in a while.
"Cry Baby," AKA "Cry Cry Baby," was Garnet Mimm's biggest hit. Janis Joplin covered it, but I've never cared for her rough, histrionic version.
