Unsolved Mysteries in Song

Let's see how many unsolved mysteries we can find in music.  To start:  "Ode to Billie Joe" (Bobby Gentry) tells the tale of a boy who apparently commits suicide, but townsfolk don't know why:  "Today, Billy Joe MacAllister jumped off the Tallahatchie Bridge."  


What songs do you know that contain unsolved mysteries?

Catch the Rainbow  -  Rainbow


When evening falls
She'll run to me
Like whispered dreams
Your eyes can see
Soft and warm
She'll touch my face
A bed of straw
Against the lace
We believed
We'd catch the rainbow
Ride the wind
To the sun
Sail away
On ships of wonder
But life's
Not a wheel
With chains
Made of steel
So bless me
Come the dawn

The line in Ode to Billie Joe, as you started with, Darcie:

"He said he saw a girl that looked a lot like you up on Choctaw Ridge
And she and Billy Joe was throwing somethin' off the Tallahatchie Bridge"


I remember debating with friends over what that might have been.


Stay well and enjoy!

On Every Street (Dire Straits):


"There's gotta be a record of you someplace
You gotta be on somebody's books
The lowdown, a picture of your face"
