Song of the Day: 'Reason to Believe' by Marianne Faithfull

I've never been a Rolling Stones fans, but I've always been Marianne Faithfull curious. So the other night I played some of her early records -- was shocked to learn she'd actually had not one but four Top 40 singles here in the U.S.: "As Tears Go By," her 1964 debut, peaked at No. 22, "Come Stay With Me," reached No. 26, "This Little Bird" got to No. 32 and "Summer Nights" hit No. 24 -- and enjoyed what I heard. Today's pick is from her 1967 album, "Love in a Mist," a sweet song I'd hitherto only known by Rod Stewart and Wilson Phillips.

The Carpenters did a great version of this.
