Happy Monday!

This Music Monday pick is Sister Golden Hair by America

The song was written by Gerry Beckley and recorded by America for their fifth album Hearts (1975).  It was their second single to reach number one on the U.S. Billboard Hot 100, remaining in the top position for just one week.

Although the song is a message from a man to his lover, explaining that he still loves her despite being not ready for marriage, the title was initially inspired by the mothers of all three members of the group, all of whom were blondes.
