I like Simply Red. That said, I just have to comment on Money's Too Tight To Mention. I understand that it's not always easy to fit the right sylables into the right music for a masterpiece. Sometimes you have to sacrifice the right lyrics for the right music, and vice versa. However, what stood out to me, was that in this song, they missed a good opportunity to have a real big hit. With a little tweaking, if they changed the song to Money's Too Tight To Get Loose, they could have had a great hit here. It's the little things that make the difference between good and great. I really think they could have pulled it off.
I checked them out (Moody Bluegrass). They're not bad. However, just knowing that there's a Moody Blues version out there, makes me want to hear their version instead. Nobody can do it like the Moody Blues. It was kind of weird to hear a bluegrass version of Just A Singer In A Rock & Roll Band. I don't know what to make of that. But again, they weren't bad. Interesting. The jury's still still out.
I do a lot of listening while driving around in my car on errands, etc. Today I was listening to a CD of hits from 1982. I was especially enjoying "Shake It Up" by the Cars, "Gloria" by Laura Branigan, "Rosanna" by Toto, and best of all, "Eye In The Sky" by The Alan Parsons Project!
