So it can't be a pop song then? Wink
Well, seriously I don't care much whether it's a pop song or not, it's a song and it is head and shoulders over Moonlight Shadow.

A very nice song. Always loved it, right form when I first heard it as a kid, but not his very best.
Ultimately bored by endless ecstasy!

I agree. 

"Wonderful land" is a great song too.

Here are the two I mentioned that I prefer to Moonlight Shadow, though they obviously would not have existed without it

This with Anita Hegerland (his wife at the time) and Aled Jones

Yes and no. Sort of, but not quite. Know what I mean?
