FALSE ECHOES.

A beautiful song about Jimmy's fantatstic father. And since I have the world's SECOND best story teller as a father, who, at 82, is getting closer and closer to THE home port, I chose this one.

But me, hell, I just want to live happily ever after
Every now and then....."

False Echoes.... James Taylor is perfect!

This is a show stopper.

Love the story and music of School Boy Heart.. Happily Ever After (Now & Then) is a real close second.. Another one of my favorite albums!! :D

False Echoes. A great tribute to Jimmy's father.

Hard to chose between Jamaica Mistaica and School Boy Heart, but I'm going with SBH for all the good lyrics. I always seem to go for the songs that are ballads about Jimmy.

I do love how Jimmy does JM at the live show, but when I'm just listening to favorites, SBH would be on the list.

Agreed. Best sonf from a decent but uneven album.

Happily Ever After. As I go through these it has dawned on me that I love his slow stuff. There are some great lines and sentiments expressed in this song. Might be my favorite Jimmy song.

That's his best line from any of his songs and has been my signature since the day I joined BN.
