I've heard of Yanni and am familiar with some of his work.

See if you can make it all the way through.
YouTube - Gordon Lightfoot - The Wreck of the Edmund Fitzgerald
By the time the cook tells the crew "it's been good to know ya", I have tears in my eyes but they aren't from the tragedy of the story!

My first 'error file' came when I went to buy the 45 version of Georgie Fame's "The Ballad of Bonnie and Clyde" which had gone to #3 on the US charts. Instead of Fame's song, I accidentally purchased Merle Haggard's "The Legend of Bonnie and Clyde". See the difference?

Both songs were inspired by the Warren Beatty/Faye Dunaway movie, "Bonnie and Clyde". The two could not have been more dissimilar.

I was pissed.

Ha!
You meant 'Music' Album?
I never bought one for my personal use. I never owned a Turntable. Compact Discs came out just as I got my first job.

Mi$ter Right.
