    'What A Crying Shame' by The Mavericks. From their extremely enjoyable Grammy Award-winning album released in 1994. Of course, I say that about all their albums...

    'Tempted' as recorded by Marty Stuart. Written by legendary British songwriter Paul Kennerley, this enjoyable song emits a Buddy Holly/Dave Edmunds vibe.

    Yeah -- that's a helluva good song.

    I think in a different time frame it could have been a massive hit. The timing was just bad, with respect to the climate/market.

    the entire green album is a great example of the pop/rock sound of the 2000s

    Hollow Horse To pretend to be happy could only be idiocy

    "Woman In Chains" - Tears For Fears with Oleta Adams - almost six minutes of perfect pop pleasure.
