Haven't heard any Harry Chapin music before so would like to have a listen...are there any websites worth checking out that have mp3s of his music on them?

David Byrne, Morrissey, Robert Smith, John Lennon, Ray Davies, Lou Reed, Smokey Robinson, Paul Weller, Holland/Dozier/Holland, Paul Simon, John Squire, Bowie, Dylan.

If I had to choose just one it would have be Smokey Robinson, pure poetry and not a single word wasted.

Smokey Robinson..I'm impressed, I was actually thinking of covering 'fly me to the moon' but I wasn't sure if I'd pull it off

If it's a lyric thing, try 'Tracks Of My Tears'.

thanks will check that out. What worried me covering that one is I play acoustic guitar at gigs and thought I might not be able to do it justice without a nice slick piano part. Love singing the song though so might look into covering again
