29072014 - Frankie Miller "Falling in Love"
One of those artists that tend to be forgotten, but whose songwriting (and singing) goes beyond the cliched pleasantness of a song like "Darlin'" (which, of course, made it to #1 on the Norwegian singles chart). With his raspy voice and occasionally sentimental delivery it's easy to dismiss Miller as another love ballad monger, but anyone who can remove the reggae completely from Bob Marley's "Is This Love" deserves some more credit. His connections to Brinsley Schwarz, Thin Lizzy and Robin Trower should also be a sign to people that there's more to Miller than just the schmaltz, but then again - songs like "Good to See You" are just that. Still good though!
