- Covered Up:
- Since his version of "You've Got a Friend" is often played on the radio, some casual listeners assume it's his song (he actually was covering a Carole King song).
- "How Sweet It Is" gets this as well; it was originally performed by Marvin Gaye.
- His 1985 hit "Everyday" was originally recorded by Buddy Holly in 1957, albeit his version has a slower tempo than Holly's version.
- Signature Song: "Fire and Rain".
