Bird of paradise

Well, one more exotic bird themed post to round things off. British Blues/rock singer Snowy White left Thin Lizzy in 1982 to pursue a solo career. His first solo album White flames contained the beautiful laid back track Bird of paradise, which was selected to be a single release and made the UK top 10. He never managed to repeat this success, and his only other claim to fame is that he performed in Roger Waters' memorable 1990 live concert of The Wall in Berlin, where Snowy White played the famous guitar solo in Comfortably numb.
Art Rock score: 9/10 (very strong song, one of 650 best songs of all time)
