Get ready for a long one today…
Bad Company was a British band with the habit of making songs into hits that were the same name as those of other artists. “Can’t Get Enough of Your Love” – Barry White. “Feel Like Makin’ Love” – Roberta Flack.
But this song is the first I think of when I hear the title “Shooting Star”. From 1975’s Straight Shooter.
Normally, I wouldn’t play a “medley” (is just two songs a medley?) on Song of the Day, and especially not on Tuesdays, when I’m playing two songs anyway. But this performance of two songs from A Single Man is so great (even if the recording is not), that I had to share.
Note: “Song for Guy” was already song of the Day back on 9/26/10.
