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.

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

Thanks Alison – and thanks David and Belinda for reminding us of the lovely syrupy voice that is james Taylor singing some fab tracks – we all need a friend…

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.

Not if, James. When.

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.

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