Art Garfunkel actually released the first version of Same Old Tears... on his album Breakaway, but Stephen wrote the song and released his own version on his album Careless.

Here's Stephen's greatest hit On And On:

Rumer is a brilliant songwriter AND singer. She can do just about anybody's songs and make them come to life.
