Thanks guys. What happened to Edna ? She must be having second thoughts on her nominations. Here's mine. Catch you later - it's Dinner time here.

Lyin' Eyes - The Eagles

The Tracks Of My Tears - Smokey Robinson & The Miracles

(Val and I saw a movie with it in today, and I just can't stop singing it).

So take a good look at my face

You see my smile looks out of place

If you look closer it's easy to trace

The tracks of my tears

I was working, I'm back home now... :)

I don't know what songs I want to nominate... so I'll go with

"You're so vain" - Carly Simon

"Sorrow" - David Bowie.

"Sorrow" is a McCoys' song from 1965 and then The Merseys did a very good version... but I love Bowie's cover.

Hi Phil and Edna. Sorrow is a great song. I don't know the McCoys' version of it, but I liked both the Merseys and Bowie's versions. It's difficult to get it on many Bowie 'Best Of' compilations because it wasn't a hit in the U.S. Same with Ashes To Ashes which I've got on my "ones to nominate" list. Do you like that one Edna ?

Or am I wrong ? Are both/either of those songs well known in the U.S. ? :P

With your long blonde hair

and your eyes of blue

The only thing I ever got from you

was sorrow....

You may have seen my past raves about Bowie's "Pin-Ups" Album...complete with Bowie and Twig The Wonderkid (Twiggy) on the cover. These are Bowie's favorite Mersey era songs including Sorrow, The Shapes of Things, where have All The Good Times Gone, See Emily Play, Here Comes The Night and more...the bonus CD tracks include Springsteen covers too. A must own album for classic rock fans.
