Maybe I'm just a sucker for slide guitars and pianos

You know how sometimes you hear a song and become so swept up in its majesty that you find yourself singing along at the top of your lungs?
Well, that's what happened to me the other day, when I heard BADFINGER'S "DAY AFTER DAY."
As a kid, I always thought the 1971 single was a song by THE BEATLES -- which makes sense, since Badfinger were essentially Fab Four protégés, with Paul McCartney penning their first hit single, "COME AND GET IT."
 "Day After Day," though, proves that Badfinger's ace songwriter PETE HAM could compose his own classic tunes.
Tunes so classic they made me loudly sing along!
