    They are all good, but the originals are the best in my humble opinion.

    Have a fabulous day filled with great music. 🙂

    Cat Stevens, I know. The others must be before my time. Hey, could you post Cat Stevens for Feline Friday?

  7. Ah, the Bay City Rollers – I had their posters on my wall when I was about 9 years old. And get this: I had never even heard any of their music at the time! Those were the days.

    Cat Stevens’ version of Wild World was such a HUGE favorite of mine back in the day! I still like to hear it.

    I must be an old soul — I tend to like the originals the best.
    But still all good songs.

    One of the best covers I ever heard was The Barenaked Ladies version of Lover’s In A Dangerous Time by Bruce Cockburn it’s brilliant.

    There are so many remakes, but the originals are always hard to beat. Thanks for sharing two oldies with the 4M crew and for joining us on the virtual dance floor!
