I feel so lucky to have grown up in such an amazing time for music. I can still remember the first time I heard I Wanna Hold Your Hand. Goose bumps! But Motown was also wonderful during my teen years as well as the protest music.

As I remember the story, Steven wrote the song and taught it to David. They worked on harmonies for it, but David always thought that it needed a third voice. So they go over to Joni Mitchell's house, and there they meet for the first time this guy from England who they really only know as the voice of The Hollies. And things progress and get wild and wooly the way things got back in those days of Laurel Canyon house parties, and at some point Steven and David start to sing "Helplessly Hoping," which of course no one has heard before. On the second verse, David heard Graham Nash join in, singing the *exact* third harmony part he had written in his head. And the rest is history. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=WGtFRsCXRcc
