    Check out a later Miles Davis LP called "You're Under Arrest" for nice versions of "Human Nature" and "Time after Time"

    Also, guitarist Stanley Jordan's first album included a beautiful version of "The Lady In My Life."

    Just wanted to correct Microbopeep turner &page fan on something. It's this. EARTH,WIND & FIRE made the song first. It just didn't get a lot of airplay. And for all of you ,those are some good lists.

  • I was feeling sick to my stomach.....and I knew I'd find the source. It's, it's, it's that name again...
