    I am overjoyed to be of assistance. I barely remember "Iko Iko," it's definitely different.

    Thank you greatly for this history, ThunderRd! As usual I'm woefully under schooled.

    My ignorance is wide and deep. Never heard of Katy Melua and I don't know the fourth artist as well. Am a big fan of Diana Krall and Norah Jones. Elvis Costello married Diana Krall, icydk. Talent loves talent.

    Talk about an all star lineup! Jerry Leiber and Mark Stoller were two of the finest songwriters and producers who ever lived!
    Thank you a billion for this great post!!

    What a stellar band! These guys are SO great. This is the second time I've heard "Southern Cross," now it makes great sense and my ears love it too. Thank you Daniel!

    I'm told that this belongs in the New Age category. I haven't heard any other New Age music. But I know I like Enya a lot.

    Before there was Stevie Wonder There was this!!



    A blind 12 year old names this song Fingertips. This rocked me, a departure from top 40. The arrival of something a bit like Jazz.

    For every three songs she does there's one I like.




    Shape of a Pony
    Joan Armatrading
    Dreams of building a fortress
    A castle made of stone
    A castle made of stone
    A castle made of stone
    Dreams of building a fortress
    A castle made of stone
    A castle made of stone
    Works himself to a pony shape
    But he just can't get it
    Jumps quite high
    But he can't trust the sky
    Walks quite far
    But he can't make the mile
    Charts his course
    But he never sets sail
    Jumps quite high
    But he can't trust the sky
    Walks quite far
    But he can't make the mile
    Charts his course
    But he never sets sail
    He would die for a Porsche
    All covered up with chrome
    All covered up with chrome
    He would die for Porsche
    All covered up with chrome
    All covered up with chrome
    Works so hard
    But he just can't get it
    Youth all spent
    On a pie in the sky
    Ace is high
    But the thing is to try
    Lady luck
    Won't you give up a smile
    Jump that jump
    Can trust the sky
    Walk that walk
    You'll reach the mile
    Chart that course
    Buddy let us set sail
    Let us set sail
    Da da da da
    Works himself to a pony shape
    But he just can't get it right
    Jump that jump
    Can trust the sky
    Walk that walk
    Chart that course
    Let us set sail
    Jump that jump
    Can trust the sky
    Walk that walk
    You'll reach the mile
    Chart that course
    Buddy let us set sail
    Let us set sail
    Da da da da

    And he plays the chromatic harmonica. Using one obviates the need for a collection of regular harmonics that are already and solely in the key of A, B, C etc. Some "blues" harmonica players actually have a collection of harmonicas in the keys of yadda, yadda, yadda.

    By the way chromatic harmonicas are difficult to play. Have one, eesh I'm no good on it.

    Mary Wells--we are SO lucky to have her!

    Martha and the Vandellas will be remembered forever. Is "Vandellas" the female version of "Vandals?"
