    It's good to know I'm right at least once! I just Iove the voice and the guitar picking, anyone that can turn a run-of-the-mill song like that into something that beautiful with no more than a voice and 6strings is very rare. I almost want to say that the stylyzed look was at best an unnecessary tangent but it was his trademark and struggling artists need that. He was a realtively young guy for that sound, way beyond his years.

    A classic SNL skit was the Claudine Longet Ski Racing Event - skiiers came down the hill and were systematically shot

    Know and quite like this one too but surprised that it missed the top 50 in the UK.

    or, for something more alternative, this one,
    https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=aVD1HRV8NqA

    The latter is too new for 'An American Werewolf in London'.
    I could agree on Van Morrison and Moondance

    Why not. Grew up with a guy who bore a strong resemblance to Neil and for a while he wore his hair similarly just to see if he could get a look or two from strangers which he did. He finally got tired of it and joined the rest of us.
