You may have never heard of this artist, except maybe for the tune of the song you probably heard way back in '87. But Paul Carrack has a very long list of credits to his name that you don't know about.............
Lead singer for a band called "Ace" in the early 70s (UK Top 20 Hit Song)
Then again re-joined Mechanics(Getting tired yet?)
Released a solo album in2003called (wait for it) "It Aint Over"
Even the "experts" feel Paul Carrack deserves better respect than what he currently gets, here's an example...."He's written brilliant songs -- "Tempted," "How Long" -- and issued brilliant solo records -- Suburban Voodoo -- but is still regarded as a journeyman, rather than as a star in his own right. That's just wrong. As a singer, Carrack is one of the most disciplined around, and still he manages to get across the deeper, subtler emotions in a song. If there some kind of "Pop Justice," Carrack'sIt Ain't Over would be on every adult contemporary station in the States. But alas, Clear Channel's not exactly known for its vision, and other programmers seemingly have no place on their playlists for smart, sophisticated, sassy, classy pop music" Ironically, Paul Carrack has had more hits (albeit his name unknown) than many of his contemporaries put together.
Welcome to "The Definitive 1000 Songs of All Time 1955 to 2005" & the Mellow Mix Volumes.This site is merely to question Rolling Stone Magazine's Top 500 Songs. Everyone has songs they
like and everyone has dislikes. Remember music is like clothing.. there are many styles,
so why on earth would all people want to wear jockey "Y" fronts???
Oh, & don't forget to RATE the songs. Ta
