Away from this sad world…

In 1964, an episode of Twilight Zone was built around an enchanting song, written and produced for the show by Jeff Alexander. The song was performed by the actress, Bonnie Archer. The first time I heard it was in 2005. A fellow server at the Olive Garden had given me the soundtrack to Vincent Gallo’s The Brown Bunny. I sat in the car late one night after work and let it play. The opening track was “Come Wander With Me.” I’d never heard such a simple, but tragic song–a beautiful, broken-hearted lullaby. I heard it again, four years later on the compilation album Late Night Tales: Air. The song seems to be haunting me.
