Randy Edelman "I Can't Make Music" vs. Raspberries

Recommended Posts

Did the Randy Edelman song "I Can't Make Music" inspire Eric Carmen to write "I Reach For The Light" by The Raspberries?? (audio only from May or June of 1972 which did not charted) (Also done by The Carpenters from 1973 "Now & Then" album) By the way, Randys song not on Apple iTunes.

Matt, never heard that song before. Pretty good tune!

The first few bars of the chorus have a similar pattern in the song structure, but I don't hear enough there to be the inspiration for Eric's song. Good find!
