I'd love to rate some of John's albums, but until I get my new record player I can't - I've only got them on vinyl and there are (even though only few) tracks I don't remember that well.
Anyhow, one question, Kyle: do you mean the song "Dancing in the Streets" which was done by Mick Jagger and David Bowie in 1985
? If so, was that a cover version then? Right now, I can't quite see the similarity, would have to give it a re-listen. I've always liked this John song (in my book it's a 10) - also (though not mainly) because of the hilarious "German" intro
