    Charles. Unbelievable! But then we know, some people just don’t get it eh?

    I once saw James Taylor displayed in a music shop under Easy Listening. The anger has never left me, flares up still from time to time.

    I’ve loved this song for years – moves me to tears.
    It’s tough to sing well, not just that I start weeping at its beauty, but difficult notes to hit too.
    Isn’t he fab!
    I’d have that at mine, if I die.

    Agreed. Didn’t know that about Fire and Rain. Thanks!

    Arguably the best voice in popular music? Fire and Rain is one of my all time favourites. Written about the death of a close friend.
