    I'm a self confessed metal head but i also like to kick back, take a breath and enjoy some easy listening. One of my favourite songs is the Herb alpert cover of This guys in love with you, a hit in 1968 and originally recorded by Dione warwick also 1968 and called This GIRLS in love with you, Burt bacharachs finest hour (imo)
