(Keeping in mind, I have no idea what the lyrics might really mean, but it does seem to be about a Sarah.)

Can't do it. I can't find the lyrics on the internet and I can't really figure out what he's saying because I don't speak French.

Totally. Again, just happy, peppy, pretty music with a great chorus.
7. Good Things Are Coming My Way-PJ Proby
I first read about him in Rock and Roll Babylon years and years ago. I think I actually found the CD at Amoeba about 6 or 7 years ago.
What's the cover look like on the album this song came from?
What's this song about?
Exactly what the title says. "Now it looks like after such a long time, good things are coming my way." One of the happiest, most optimistic, driving energy songs ever.
