  4. Very nice song (love the sax solo too).
    The vocals sound very familiar, but I can't quite place them ...

  15. See, now you've gone and taught ME something new. I'd not heard this song before. Haunting, isn't it? Yours is the second blog I've visited this morning doing an F-post for "Friend". And both made me cry.

  16. This is not a favourite track of mine. I prefer their Don't Leave me This Way. My favourite friend track is Carole King's You've Got a Friend sung by James Taylor. And there's also the Dionne Warwick charity record for AIDS sufferers That's What Friends Are For.
    Have a great Easter weekend.
