I've been listening to that a lot too, but not by choice! It's a decent song, but it's been a bit overdone, especially in our car.

Metta,
Retro. :)

This thread got me in the mood for some tunes. I have to add a classic: The Beatles. Sorry for posting an entire album, but I couldn't choose a single.

With the man in the woman
And the woman in the man

loud gush the streamlets,

And let us not forget the bit of The Ventures Walk Don't Run he squeezes in the there, and there is also a couple bits of real classical riffs he uses, but don't ask me to name music which they are from.

Yes, I think Emmanuel's performance is more correctly a medley. He's a brilliant musician and had his hayday in Australia about fifteen years ago and has since slipped back into obscurity. I haven't even heard of him doing the pub circuit.

Speaking of medleys...

Ahh...beautiful!
