OK, more 90's: This '97 folk-rock classic was written by the artist and John Leventhal. Speaks of a woman who burns down her house to escape her past. Other than "Norwegian Wood", arguably the most famous song about arson. Inspired by a Julie Speed painting featured in the album cover. The artist's first song written in 3rd instead of 1st person. Grammys for Record and Song Of The Year in '98. Artist? Song?
Yesterday's answer: Bobby Hebb's "Sunny". BMI's #25 among its "Top 100 Songs Of The Century". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=IbUl_E-R91Q
