40 Year Itch : Interplanetary Extraordinary Love

Picnic at Hanging Rock, 1975

   The same month John Lennon released the single "Stand By Me", the song Ben E. King had written and scored a #1 hit with 14 year earlier, the soul singer could be heard on both pop and soul stations singing about a one of a kind "interplanetary, extraordinary" love in "Supernatural Thing" which topped the R and B charts in 1975. Co-written by Gwen "Ain't Nothing Going on But the Rent" Guthrie. Later covered by Siouxsie and the Banshees, minus the groove.
