Play List for SUPERSTAR

If you wonder what sort of songs Paul Montgomery writes in Superstar, here are the main songs I used as inspiration for those he composed (both lyrics and music) and what the arrangement and "sound" that I heard in my head was.

If you want the total performance of Paul's voice and styling, you'll find it in

Michael Bolton's redition of "White Christmas".

Here's that promised play list! Well, at least the song titles and performers used.
