Like any cover I guess they just liked it and thought it was a good song for Denny to sing. If I remember right they change the lyric from Richard Cory to John Denver ??? at one point.
Soily was written by Paul. Great rocker and closer for WOA.
I saw a story in the paper about Nancy's father & late uncle having links to the Mafia through family trucking business. Has anybody else seen the story ?
ActionFletch:Man all the lyrics posted here are great!!! My other hero, Mark Knopfler, has a song on his last album with the lyric,
On and on we go, through this old world a shuffling,
If you've got a truffle dog, you could go truffling....
I kid you not! So Paul is doing pretty good. His lyrics were always sublime, just that John always trashed him in interviews.
Glad to see another Aussie Mark Knopfer fan. The man is a genius songwriter and of course a great guitarist. He is a great storyteller and his songs are great at evoking vivid images of people and places.

Living In the Material World DVD - Pretty good but gives scant mention of a lot of Georges music after All Things Must Pass.
Also got Paul's The Love We Make DVD - Very interesting doco
RAM deluxe on the way from Amazon. Cant wait. Should be a great set.
Very sad and he was only 62. The Bee Gees were one of the 3 great pop groups of the 60's The Beatles, The Beach Boys & The Bee Gees. All started with "B" but were A grade talents. Bee Gees were also of course also big in 70's and huge with Saturday Night Fever.
An album that took a while for me to get into. I don't think it is one of Paul's easiest listens. I think it is still a little bit too 80's in production but I still think it is a very good album.
Songs are fine but just too much gimicky 80's production.
Nancy R:audi:lazydynamite88:audi:Still in Billboard's Top Ten Jazz albums chart
No. 9...No. 9....No. 9
therin lies every piece of evidence you will ever need to know about the actuall worth of the 'jazz ' chart......how many copies shifted this week?..i would be surprised if it is over 500 in total
Here's one of my favorite but very old jokes (in reference to your post, LazyD):
"Do you know what a jazz concert is? Thirteen people waiting on a melody to break out."
(I hate Jazz music in general)
I wouldn't really describe the music on KOTB as Jazz. Jazz covers such a broad range of styles. Anything before Rock'n'Roll tends to get put in this category. I would probably call it just standards or even pre-rock pop.
