Re: John Pagano

Bonjour Vincent! Firstly, thanks again for your gift - I finally got to watch it, absolutely brilliant! I listened to the samples of Johns cd on myspace and even dropped him a note to say how much I enjoyed them and I was surprised to receive a reply the next day from him! He thanked me and hinted t...

Blue/Dennis

Mr Bennett has been performing that song as part of his repertoire for a few years now - you may have heard it subconsciously somewhere? Otherwise, a true coincidence!!

Yes, it was one amazing night at the Kings Dock Summer Pops Arena back in July 2002 and formed part of his UK tour. The Maestro was joined on stage by (alas) Will Young and then by Costello. I was also lucky enough to see them both perform in Dublin a couple of years earlier. On that night in Liverp...

Hi nowmedical I agree that the song had great potential, though in my opinion it was lost on Young. His vocals (again in my opinion!) are lacklustre, flat and unoriginal - I really don't rate him at all.

Lost Horizon - Burt's Living Together version

One of my BB favourites this one - Great piano, great strings & great Burt!

Thanks
