Jimmy Webb composed a 22-minute cantata that ended with a seven-minute coda called "MacArthur Park." He offered it to Bones Howe, who produced The Association, but the group turned it down, mainly because of the length.

Donna Summer recorded a disco version in 1978 that made it to #1 on the US Billboard Pop Charts.
