    When you think about HA, how many great albums are under his own name, albums he was a guest on, produced etc., it is staggering how much time he has spent in a recording studio producing great music. But then I got to thinking, how many songs he wrote or co-wrote. NOT songs he wrote for albums under his own name (because we all know those). Maybe we could list songs he wrote or co-wrote for others like this enjoyable track:

    @abstract_fan, those are some quite obscure recordings there! :thumbsup: It makes me wonder how many of these are lurking around in the numerous used record stores in the 45 bins. I'll have to add a few to my list, just for kicks.
