Aretha Franklin – Ain't No Way  

Love the gospel chords, backing vocals and everything.

 

Roxy Music – If There Is Something

 

Great pop music with three distinct sections and great lyric.

 
David Bowie – Lady Grinning Soul  

I love this tune and his vocals and Mike Garson's piano.

 

J.S.Bach, played by Patricia Hase - Prelude #8 in E flat minor

 

Love to play this and it is timeless.

 

The Rolling Stones – It's All Over Now

From the first LP I ever owned.

 
Dvorak sung by Joan Hammond – O Silver Moon,Russalka  

Heard this sung by 8 people in a music festival I competed in aged 11 and wanted to sing it.

 
Joni Mitchell – At Last  

A great version with beautiful orchestral arrangement by Vince Mendoza. The whole album is wonderful.

 
Four Tops – Walk Away Renee  

We recorded this on the Groucho Club charity CD- love their singing.

 
Nina Simone – Wild Is The Wind  

Love her piano and voice combination and this film song gets a great kick from her.

 
Mahler – 5th Symphony, Adagietto  

There are several pieces of music that can produce this beautiful sad/longing feeling.
