Composer Jimmy Webb wrote "MacArthur Park" about his breakup with Susan Ronstadt, a cousin of singer Linda Ronstadt. MacArthur Park was where the two occasionally met for lunch and spent their most enjoyable times together.

The song was recorded by the actor Richard Harris in 1967. When it was released in 1968 it reached #2 in the US and #4 in the UK singles charts.
