SAXON - RIDE LIKE THE WIND
Awesome! British heavy metal band Saxon cover Christopher Cross’ “Ride Like the Wind". Somehow they manage to make it hilarious without the participation of Michael McDonald. No wonder they were the real life inspiration behind Spinal Tap.
KING DIAMOND - WELCOME HOME

Throwing a welcome home party for your Grandma? King Diamond has the soundtrack for just such an occasion.

STANLEY CLARK - SCHOOL DAYS
Speaking of bringing the joy, how can you not smile watching Stanley Clarke & George Duke jam Clarke’s “School Days” in 1981 on the Old Grey Whistle Test? It’s okay to look like you’re having fun making music. Really. For proper evidence check the geek out & grin session around the 3:00 mark.
