    La la la la Lee!

    Pour Man, Dark in my Heart, The Girls in Paris, I Move Around, Dolly and Hawkeye, …. classics all around. Also responsible for the best song ever written about Olof Palme.

    Trouble is a Lonesome Town: best concept album ever.

    Even his duets with Ann-Margret are good.
