Glen Campbell - "By The Time I Get To Phoenix." A young Glen, before substance abuse problems. "By the Time I Get to Phoenix" is an American pop song written by Jimmy Webb and made famous by Glen Campbell, whose version reached #3 on the U.S. Pop charts in 1967.
That's MacArthur Park and downtown Los Angeles in a photo taken during one of our private helicopter tours. Our Elite Adventure Tours guests requested a flyover of the lake so they could sing the refrain from the great Jimmy Webb song. We can do that in a helicopter, for the most part, and we always vary our ground tour routes to accommodate our guests' wishes. That's the beauty of a private custom tour.
Stop hating on MacArthur Park by Jim Webb...here the hit songwriter himself sings his classic song and it finally makes sense. He wrote this about breaking up with his girlfriend in MacArthur Park. One of his most famous songs, it's interesting to listen to the words in this quirky song.
