Glad you enjoyed them Steven. TVZ's songs often tend to be very visual - some more than others - and so the artwork goes very well with them.

Another song that I find has vivid imagery - no artwork though , just TVZ's poker face....

Hi Kush,

"Quicksilver Daydreams of Maria" could have been a commercially successful cover by other artists,
including well-known classically trained tenors and others from the mainstream. I don't know
of any recorded covers. Can also see the vivid imagery.
