Aaron Neville should have done a remake of Staying Alive by The Bee-Gees in his earlier days.

Tahvo...I hear Aaron getting slammed a lot because he's such a big, burly man with that smooth voice singing those ballads. But when I think of the Nevilles I think of this song...or the Meters. I don't know if you're familiar with it, but thought I'd throw it at you anyway...

Thanks for another great link, Gitarzan. I'm familiar (though not very much so) with the Neville Brothers and Aaron Neville, the song itself I don't recall hearing. Nice song, good sound I'll check out more of their catalogue, always looking forward to stumbling across some great artist I either don't know at all or not overly familiar with, and clips from YouTube certainly help my never ending and highly enjoyable quest.

"Heís recorded other songs of mine, all great performances, but for some reason I kept thinking about 'Shooting Star,' something heís never recorded but I knew that he could. I could always hear him singing it for some reason, even when I wrote it. I mean, what can you say? He's the most soulful of singers, maybe in all of recorded history. If angels sing, they must sing in that voice. I just think his gift is so great. The man has no flaws, never has. Heís always been one of my favorite singers right from the beginning. 'Tell it Like it Is,' that could be my theme song. Itís strange, because heís the kind of performer that can do your songs better than you, but you canít do his better than him. Really, you canít say enough about Aaron Neville. We wonít see his likes again." - Bob Dylan
