Before we begin, this is important:
That classic was written by one Mr. Dennis Lambert, a man who left songwriting for real estate only to have his one solo album become a massive hit... in the Philippines. Now, according to this article on SlashFilm, Steve Carell may play Lambert in a biopic. (Be sure to watch the trailer with the article.)
After the jump, catch a couple of other Lambert classics. (Glen Campbell! The Commodores!)
Lambert's one album, the bizarrely named Bags and Things, is out of print, though you can score it on eBay.
