Bell Bottom Bliss: “My Love Is Alive” by Gary Wright

posted by on July 26 at 8:24 AM

Yeah, he’s better known for “Dream Weaver,” which might work its way onto this list if other songs aren’t available, but Gary Wright is at his gooey, groovy best with “My Love is Alive.” This is the kind of mid-tempo, Mellotron-ed schmaltz that haters love to hate on, but that organ vamp-vs-bassline is totally digable. Makes me wish I drove a Pinto.

What happened to this guy? Where’d he come from, where’d he go? His love is alive, but is he? An entire fan-fic series could be written about Gary Wright: He pals up with George Harrison, scores a couple hits, crashes his Pinto, loses a leg, moves to Australia, starts sculpting giant nudes out of scrap metal, makes a fortune when he strikes oil in the outback, buys a yacht, becomes a pirate, marauds to a ’70s smooth rock soundtrack.
