probably best known for this classic
my fav is her Cohen covers album
Funny thing--different strokes and all that but I like all her work except that Leonard Cohen stuff. Try one of her comps first but it's tough to go wrong with any of her material--someday there will be a thorough comp of her singing including soundtracks, commercials, etc. http://www.jenniferwarnes.com/

Couldn't let Ms. Jen go--love her her voice and her awkwardness as a performer plus her wearing spectacles on stage so:
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=28dnOMphz30 << Tom Petty as a backup singer??? Does it get better?
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wVSEX2azwjE << with her perfect duet partner--forget that disturbed English bloke << real nice sax break
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=saay8NW7tTE << Unfortunately, I haven't always...especially not in advance--y'all doubtless have a better track record...at least, I hope so.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=g5cERFB8Gys << 1 commenter called it a "lullaby for adults" The promise at the beginning, tho' it mutates in maturity.
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=VujoMmg2DxI << strong modern re-statement of Leslie Gore's pleas/demands << It'd make a great karaoke song for a man--it's not gender-specific and it sure happens to both. Same song covered well and powerfully by Ms. Thelma Houston: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=OepWUqBz1kE

^Love Chris Rea, my favourite album is Auberge.

Another Chris born on this day is Chris Squire - 04 March 1948. Long time bass guitarist and backing vocalist for Yes and he appears on every one of their albums. I very much like the sole album he made together with Steve Hackett as Squackett - A Life Within a Day. Difficult to find clips on YouTube for some reason - but there's not a bad track on the album, IMHO so I'm posting the only YT I can find, "Divided Self" and an audio clip of "The Summer Backwards". http://grooveshark.com/#!/s/The+Summer+B...kuLD?src=5

John Frusciante - born 05 March 1970. Formerly of the Red Hot Chilli Peppers and now mostly concentrating on solo efforts, although he's also collaborated with many others. Rolling Stone has previously ranked him 18th in the top one hundred best guitar players of all time; he himself believes that the great guitar masters of the 1960's remain unsurpassed. He's known for his creativity and interpretive playing rather than for virtuosity as an absolute, and I quite like the experimental aspects of his music. This song is from the sixth of six albums he recorded during the course of 2004!

Never bought his stuff but sure played him a lot on jukeboxes. I found his rhythmic approach heavy-handed...of course behind liikker and Mary Warner, he kept you moving. Here's 2 more: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8SyT4Qitdao and https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dOsVohtbgxc
