Donovan’s ‘Atlantis’ is probably the most spectacular matching of great chorus to shitty rest-of-song that has ever fallen out of a pop star.
“All legends from all lands were from fair Atlantis”? Spectaculary bad lyric. Horrific. And there’s far, far more where that came from!
But the chorus is so catchy. And how can one object to “my ante-diluvian baby” sung so irrepressibly? One cannot.
