#64 – Paula Cole – “Where Have All the Cowboys Gone?” – (1996)

Paula Cole won Best New Artist at the Grammys in 1997 – mostly because of the success of this song. The best parts are when the music eases out and, instead of singing, it sounds like she’s reading a poem. The lyrics are great and the “do-do-do-do…” that accompanies the music makes for a memorable arrangement. This song cracked the top ten in the U.S. but her follow-up, “I Don’t Want to Wait,” couldn’t quite match that success (it peaked at #11 and was the theme song for the crazy-popular Dawson’s Creek).
