At the risk of treading on your point,
even class 50 Cent as a song-writer?????
actually, my uncle has one of those ASCAP 'Most performed song of the year' awards from '85 (I think) - it's quite impressive really
but 50 pence?? Songwriter of the year? oh dear...
sounds like a pub singer.
he wasn't in the band - he was a writer/producer
and the band wasn't AHA (though he did produce some of their albums and all MÃ¥rten Harket's solo stuff)
it was 86 he got the award
was it then ?
we do !!!
'All I need is a miracle' by Mike and The Mechanics - most played song (by a non-American act) on US radio, 1986
not very 'cred' is it?
apart from the fact that singer/keyboard player Paul Carrack played all the keyboards on the first Smiths LP and was in the re-formed Roxy Music when they came back with their Manifesto LP
