Songs of the Day
Dr. Tarr & Professor Feather-Alan Parsons Project (1976) the first single from the Edgar Allan Poe Lp...pop star John Miles provides the vocal.
Dracula Moon-Joan Osborne (1995) Much more than aone-hit wonder with "One of Us"...this is also from the "Relish" cd of 1995 that made her a star. What an interesting voice.With the popularity of vampires these days...this should be a popular tune.
