Helen Reddy, hypnotic ’70s dykon

Sometimes an innocuous dinner with acquaintances can turn into a nostalgia-fest. This happened to me recently. OK, maybe it was just a nostalgic moment, but it concerned Helen Reddy.

The conversation went something like this: "What was Pete’s Dragon about?" [Shrugs all around] "I think it was about Helen Reddy and a lighthouse."

Fair enough. But then we couldn’t remember the song she sang in the lighthouse.

By the way, apparently Reddy is now a hypnotherapist in Sydney. Whoa. Then again, her voice is so wonderfully clear, it’s almost hypnotic. No big career change there.
