Mary Margaret O'Hara - When You Know Why You're Happy

Shamed deserter Silver Medalist returns to the front after an inordinate time AWOL, but he comes bearing a wonderful gift - the delirious, dolorous, hypnotic voice of Mary Margaret O'Hara. It's 21 years since her one and only record, the nocturnal, noirish country soul of Miss America, but the indisyncratic songbird remains unique, still singing like a through-the-looking-glass siren, with that alluring, trancendental, bewildering vocal cadence. On this majestic video clip, she looks like Juno, and her band resemble extras from Jake and the Fatman, which makes it all even better
