"Seven Year Ache" by Roseanne Cash.

OK, back to the 80's: Roseanne Cash penned this "semi-autobiographical" composition as a poem after a fight with then husband Rodney Crowell at a French restaurant in L.A. It took her 6 month to put it to music. Ironically, Crowell himself subsequently produced the record which became Cash's first #1 Country single in '81. A man of few words runs off to a seedy joint to drown his marital woes. Considered her breakthrough song, it crossed over peaking at #22 Pop and at #6 Adult Contemporary. Covered by Trisha Yearwood in '01 with Cash on background vocals.

Yesterday's answer: "From Me To You" - always playing, along with "Thank You, Girl", on the little tableside jukeboxes at Mastro' Pizza Palace in S.J.!
