What about some songs by Rod McKuen a noted poet/singer/songwriter in the USA - I have his book of poems called "Love's Been Good To Me" :) and these are the songs -

Love's Been Good To Me, The World I Used To Know, Try To Remember, Jean.

I haven't heard them for ages and ages. I like the first one :D

He also co-wrote several dozen songs with the late French composer Jacques Brel, including - If You Go Away, Come Jef, Port Of Amsterdam and Seasons In The Sun.

Hi Kwills,

Thanks for reviving "Friends". Arrival had the hit, but my favourite version is Terry Reid's:

Plus here's Terry Reid and Enya doing a great cover of "Whole of the Moon":

This is not a song but a short clip and powerful clip of aaron neville performing at the biggest maximum security prison - Angola State Penitentiary, LA - in 2008.

I saw him in concert recently and among other songs he did Song of Bernadette.

Nice one - and all those 'Mariannes'.

"Shot by Both Sides" is a song written by Howard Devoto and Pete Shelley and performed by the English post punk band Magazine, which appeared on their debut album Real Life in 1978 and was released as a single in the same year.

One of the top ten rock songs of all time. (IMO)

Hey - Broc11!

What's going on, here? You seem to have re-posted (above) a whole chunk of one of my earlier posts.

Songs are very useful in our life. Songs are unforgettable thing in our life, because there is an important role of songs in our life. We can enjoy by watching the songs. We can do the dance from the songs, but some old songs are forgotten by the human. Now a days there is an important role of English songs so some old Hindi songs are forgotten by the human.
Genius is an immense capacity for taking trouble.
