Jonathan Edwards: Sunshine

Going back to 1971, Jonathan Edwards’ one-hit wonder that might not have happened. Because a studio engineer accidentally erased a song titled “Please Find Me” which was slated for release on Edwards’ self-titled debut album, Edwards recorded a new song, “Sunshine,” as a replacement track.

The lyrics comprise a clandestine anti-war message that most people will not recognize because of its subtlety. The song broke out of Edwards’ hometown of Boston as an album cut and was eventually released as a single which peaked at #4 in January 1972.
