Crazy Love (Van Morrison, not Michael Buble)

The only thing I can think of that would Michael Buble any more credible than he is in his particular niche would be for him to stop taking on Van Morrison tunes.

Buble's strengths are his amazing voice, his singing talent and his band with their amazing arrangements. The thing is, very few writers/arrangers/musicians are in the same league as Morrison. Ambition is a fine thing but performers don't distinguish themselves by delivering watered down, neutered versions of treasured tunes penned by a Master.

That's all.

Oooh, now I really want to listen to some Van Morrison! What's your fave song by him? I really love It Stoned Me. (is that what it's called?)

PS - your fish are sooo hungry. I overfed them.

I wonder what will happen with the fish; I'm pretty moderate in my feeding but I wonder if they'll get huge and explode or something!!

Favorite Van Morrison tune? Probably Domino or Brown Eyed Girl although Moondance is completely, super totally me and Rob's song. He's been so prolific; beautiful voice, too. His live album "A Night in San Francisco" is brilliant...sounds great and really shows his many, many talents.
