2. James Taylor, 'Gaia'

Rippling strings, soprano sax, featherweight harmonies: James Taylor will see your mawkishness and raise it. Singing in 1997 of a mass exodus from New York City in search of greener pastures, Taylor compares a bus to a "foolish school of fish on wheels" and turns "helpless and speechless and breathless" once he's perched on a mountain. Then he prays for trees and fish. (Again with the fish!)
