We Gotta Get Out of this Place


We gotta get out of this place
If it's the last thing we ever do
We gotta get out of this place
Cause girl, there's a better life for me and you

-- Barry Mann and Cynthia Weil

"We Gotta Get Out of This Place" is an early AM radio memory of mine -- from the period when I was really starting to listen to WLS and WCFL.

Amazing -- really amazing -- that those two were responsible for so much by so many different kinds of artists. I love these little corners of pop music history (I've been stuck on a Shuggie Otis song, "Strawberry Letter 23," for about two months now).
