    ELO's 'Mr Blue Sky'. A perennial.

    Jeff Lynnes' masterpiece 'Eldorado' very underrated album.

    Probably that post-Popmaster masterpiece - Macarthur Park by Richard Harris. Who really did leave the cake out in the rain?
    Telling it almost exactly like it was so many years later - and proud of doing so!

    Nothing to do with that ill-fated soap opera, methinks?

    Jeff Lynne has written a lot of great music from the '60s to the 2000s, amazing talent! I guess if I could have written 'Happy Birthday To You' I might be quite wealthy, but I'd have needed a time machine as well. I'd settle for writing something up there with the Sooty or Wombles themes, or I know... Rainbow... I really liked that theme of theirs! I wonder how much the composer of the Coronation Street trumpet piece gets (or their heirs)?

    Actually I am a published songwriter, three with my BF (my words, his music), and one on my own with a little help from him (words and music by me), and apparently that made the top ten in Chile and Peru briefly. I think I've made $50 max, but the stuff is registered with ASCAP. Anyone want to cover our tunes?

    - Night Shift by Lionel Richie and The Communards

    - In Private/Nothing Has Been Proved by The Pet shop boys that Dusty Springfield did

    - Angels by Robbie Williams

    - Wonderwall/Don't Look Back In Anger - by Oasis

    A more recent one upon re-investigating the Pet Shop Boys' songs they did with Robbie Williams - who i rate totaly equaly as one of the very best Groups and Solo Artists - I never knew the wrote She's Maddona - imagine that .... a tribute to Maddona wrote by The Pet shop boys and Roibbie singing it. These 3 are just some of the cream el-acarte and your talking here the 2 very best Solo Artists (Male and Female) ever in Robbie and Madge - what a song to write 9and more so that The pet Shop's with their own distinctive voices wrote it too)
