Pretty standard stuff this week. I was researching singer Maggie Reilly (whose birthday is today; happy birthday to her) and saw where she had sung on a number of Mike Oldfield’s records, including "Family Man," which was released in 1981 and covered by Hall & Oates in 1982. I figured, why not put them back to back and see which people like better? So here we go…
