Deep and Meaningless – 2005 – Rooster
One of the best songs from a vastly underrated British indie band. This is from their self-titled debut offering. Great, poignant words. It’s a shame they burned out after only two albums.
I’m Your Baby Tonight – 1990 – Whitney Houston
The biggest and best female voice of the eighties started off the nineties with this classic. As far as I’m concerned, this is possibly the most difficult pop song to perform live. Ever.
New York State of Mind – 1976 – Billy Joel
Billy Joel is a master of the melody, but he has always been somewhat overshadowed by his contemporaries, which is a shame because – lyrically – he always has a lot to say.
