Lots of local favorites and a few obvious choices. Interesting how they went with First We Take Manhattan instead of the more famous Hallelujah (personally, while Hallelujah is a beautiful song that even after being overplayed to hell and back still sounds amazing, I might like First We Take Manhattan even better).
Music is a world within itself, with a language we all understand - Sir Duke (1976)
