“Misty” — Ray Stevens

Ray Stevens’ version of “Misty” is a particularly joyful expression of new-found love.

It was also a very unlikely UK Number Two chart hit back in 1975. It’s a little different now, but country music was deeply un-cool in the UK back in the mid-1970s. The sort of thing your grandparents might listen to, but even then, only if they were getting to the stage of life where you indulged them rather than criticised them.
