Songs of the Day
Don't Let The Stars Get In Your Eyes-kd Lang (1988) an old song which went to number 1 for Skeets McDonald and Perry Como in the 50's. It's been done by everyone from Dean Martin to George Jones but lang's version on her great Lp "Shadowland" is a keeper. Owen Bradley brings his countrypolitan production to Langs golden voice.
Don't Let The Sun Go Down On Me-Elton John (1974) Sir Elton really struggled to get this one right. It's a great ballad that features backing vocals from Carl Wilson, Bruce Johnstone and Toni Tennille. From the "Caribou" lp.
