    I remember about 10 years back thinking of doing an acoustic cover of the Outkast tune "Hey Ya". Then I found this guys vid and took a pass because his voice is just so smooth and he nails it so well. And there are alot of lyrics to learn.

    Yeah, "Streets of Fire". I'm old. Sad thing is, I own a DCD of the movie. All the cop cars are 1950 Studebaker Champs, and yes, it has some great tunes. Walter Hill's rock and roll fable.

    Yep, I know a guy who was out in California back a fair few decades ago and while hanging in a club someone wandered in and started singing this song. Turns out it was the guy from the righteous brothers. I always thought that was pretty cool. But until recently I had no idea how old the song was or how many versions that had been recorded.
