In this archivist's very humble opinion, THIS song is Bruce Johnston's masterpiece, not "I Write The Songs".
The nostalgia in this song seems bittersweet in that the singer knows that real live isn't ideal, but he still yearns for "fantasy world and Disney girls".
This song has been covered by Mama Cass, Captain and Tenille, and Art Garfunkel.
