Great songs. Especially love Cat Stevens and U2. Gosh, I haven't heard Tears for Fears in ages. I really liked them. I may have to dig through some old stuff and see if I still have anything from them.

Happy MLK day to all who commemorate the day.

Who was it made that song...
"Has anyone here seen my old friend Martin?
Can you tell me where he's gone? You know he freed a lot of people but it's said the good die young..
I just looked around and he was gone..."
Rest in Peace Mr King. Your "Have a Dream" speech continues to reverberate in the hearts and minds of all right thinking people around the world!
