If I would like to make the best compliment to the singer, it would be: he has his own style.
You hear him singing, and you do not even to know the song - it's Daniel Lavoie.

Soaring Baby

Musique: François Dompierre  
Paroles: Daniel Lavoie

It's a strange look in your eyes tonight
Such a faraway look
In a distant kind of life
Can't you get away look somewhere you want to.
Goin' to cruise the galaxy heaven
Got you eye on a distant life
But on a distant life
You gotta reason in youe eyes tonight
Such a beautiful look
In a truthful kind of life
Oh soaring baby
Morning lazy, as you roll up to the road
Soaring baby, what's no worrying when you were right
Then you're right
Then you're far above the highway, rise and ride
To a higher skyway, mmm
And then you come in for a landing
There's a warmth in your eyes tonight
Such a long look
A running kind of life, mmm
