Eric plays various instrumental parts to put together his version of a favorite song of mine.

Might not be SFW. Moderators feel free to move if appropriate. Still a good tune, though.

Because you don't have to know somebody to feel their pain... this is for that poor victim of a brutal system...and at least there are no lace curtains trying to mask it For Otto Wambier

The Muzak station played an instrumental version of this one, heavy on bowed strings.

A radio station puts some funk in their mix. I usually dislike those selections, but they played this one, which I always enjoyed.

A kid's complaint letter from summer camp to his parents as shown online reminded me of this.

Someone on social media rates 'Waterloo Sunset' "the most beautiful song in the English language." I always liked the song, but I certainly wouldn't go so far as to say that about it. Seems to me it was influenced by 'Laughter in the Rain,' which came out five years earlier.

Back when I was young and played the piano, I used to play these. They are indeed sublime. Thanks for the memories.

Glen Campbell died. His material is inside that musical space that forms the intersection of my parents' taste and my own taste.
