T his is to many the most popular song in Pete’s personal catalog, and his only solo Top 10 single to date. “Let My Love Open The Door” deals with the teachings of Meher Baba if memory serves. The US flip side, “And I Moved,” is purportedly about Pete’s own homoerotic conflict (let my love open the backdoor, I suppose). This is why I generally don’t do a lot of digging into the composer’s intent (well, that and laziness). The UK single featured two nonalbum tracks. Probably the less you know about “Greyhound Girl,” the better.
