    Because I was a fan of Cat back then, I bought that album without ever hearing the song Foreigner Suite. I think I knew one song on that album, and trusted my gut. So when I came home to play it, I was wondering if I had made a mistake. One song that I never heard, filling up one side of the record! As I listened I realized I liked it right away. The twists and turns, the musical skill, the interesting song construction. After that I was hooked on the song, and listened to it daily for a month or two. You know, one of those summers as a teenager, not fully knowing where life would go, and also not knowing who I really was. But life was good that year, as I was doing well in my Commerce studies, and liking the summer vibe. Still very unsure, but looking forward.

It was such a unique song, with several variations. It took up the entire side of the album (you know, those big round spinning things!

    I was going to University (know you know how old I am), working the summer and managing a football team. I would listen to that song a lot.

    I loved so many of his songs - Morning Has Broken, Peace Train, Father and Son, Oh Very Young, Can't Keep It In, The Hurt.....and more. A special voice and a special musical talent.

    The Best - Tina Turner (1989)



    "The Best" is a song by Bonnie Tyler for her seventh studio album, Hide Your Heart (1988). In the following year, the song was covered by Tina Turner for her seventh studio album, Foreign Affair. The song was written by Holly Knight and Mike Chapman.

    Here's Bonnie's original version...

    Wild World is a great song, and even its main cover versions (by Jimmy Cliff and Maxi Priest) have been very successful

    Another one of the great hits by the song writing duo of Burt Bacharach and Hal David. This incredible pair often teamed up with Dionne Warwick, who version of this song is sometimes assumed to be the original hit. Growing up, I was a huge fan of the Bacharach/David/Warwick collaborations.
