"Help Me" by Joni Mitchell.

OK, more 70's: This 1974 confession of troubled love remains Joni Mitchell's biggest-selling single and her ONLY Top 10 hit (#7) during her illustrious musical career. Accompanied by jazz-fusion ensemble Tom Scott's L.A. Express. Still unclear as to whether it was dedicated to Glenn Frey of The Eagles or percussionist John Guerin from Tom Scott's group, both of whom she had affairs with at the time. Ranked #282 among Rolling Stone's 500 Greatest Songs Of All Time.

Yesterday's answer: "By The Time I Get To Phoenix" by Glen Campbell. Although it is geographically incorrect, Frank Sinatra called it "the greatest torch song ever written". http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qox4uMRcEd4
