53: Everything But The Girl
My favorite band has always been Everything But The Girl (EBTG). This English husband-wife duo - Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt - formed in 1982. They made eleven albums between 1984 and 1999. I had a chance to see them perform live in Boston as well as in the Detroit area - at the Royal Oak Theatre and the Magic Bag. I even met both of them once at a book signing. Very gracious.
Check out their version of Corcovado:
Both Tracey Thorn and Ben Watt continue to put out music today. I am a fan for life. I hope one day that they bring back Everything But The Girl.
