"The Immigrant" by Neil Sedaka.

OK, back to the 70's: This touching '74 Neil Sedaka/Phil Cody composition is arguably Sedaka's most socially conscious song. It peaked at #22. Dedicated to John Lennon as a protest against the U.S. government's refusal to grant him permanent resident status. It recalls with nostalgia the bygone era when America was welcoming of incomers.

Yesterday's answer: "That's How Strong My Love Is". How do you top "Out Of Our Heads"?! Every single song is dynamite - no fillers there!
