    The title of this post startled me, Pat. Maybe "covers" is a better choice of verb.
  2. Teddy Does Eric

    What Kirk said. I consider this song a lament. The lyrics convey the emotional message quite clearly. Artists who embellish ABM with vocal gymnastics miss the simple and poignant message. I found it difficult to listen to this cover in its entirety. It fatigued my ears. The original EC version is perfection.

    Watching Fantastic Beasts and Where To Find Them, & enjoying hot chocolate and a cozy fire in the fireplace. Kitties and pup are snuggled close while the snow falls outside.

    If your mom is bossing, she is definitely feeling better. It is definitely a good sign. One of my elderly family members who was a practicing RN until she was 78, was hospitalized in a teaching hospital. She kept trying to educate the student nurses as they placed her iv's and gave her shots. Treasure your time with your mom. My elderly dad keeps me on my toes, but I wouldn't trade our time together for anything. Sending your mom wishes for a quick return to health!
  6. Food for Thought...

    So what is it with all the fast food/chain restaurants using EC's material in their advertisements? I mean I'm happy that he is generating royalties, but will the old Burger King slogan of "Have it your way" soon be changed to "GATW"? It seems that Madison Avenue has been tapping some of my favorite musical artists over the past few years to boost sales. Any theories???? Bernie??? Post your favorites!!! I'll start with my boys from Queens...

    Also, love the strings in the original vs the modern instrumentation. Once a string player, always a string player.

    Awwwwww... This is tough, and I know this has been one of EC's standard cover songs for years. I love both, but I will say that the delicacy of the original gives it that extra bit of magic.
  9. "Caroline, No"

    Wow! IMHO, the one that doesn't belong is the Schmit version. His voice fails to capture the emotion of the song for me in a believable way. The ability to tap into that emotional journey with the nuance of vocalizations is a gift that few have. Brian, Carl & EC have been blessed with the gift. Love all three, but my sentimental favorite of Brian's original wins by a nose.
  10. Eric’s last post

    I think the clue was in his post... https://en.m.wikipedia.org/wiki/Guardians_of_the_Galaxy_–_Mission:_Breakout!

    Say what you will about all the crazy covers, but there is something about EC's songs that touches people's souls. After all, isn't that what brought us here? That being said, it is the rare performer who can do justice to one of EC's songs. 😊
