Title: Your Song for the Weekend.

If you could post a new song every weekend, that would be cool. :)

Listening to that George song right now.  Doesn't even ring a bell, and I bought this album when it came out.  And I liked it!
Excellent song and solo.


I might have posted this, but I love this song.

Was looking forward to someone continuing this.
Listening to this beautiful song right now with coffee on a Saturday morning.  No one in the house right now but me.
What a freakin beautiful voice on a beautiful song.  Holy Sh**.  Wow. 
Seriously.  That was something else man.     EDIT:  Oh yeah!!! This guy!  You posted something about him way way back.  I need to look into getting a vinyl of him.  Totally forgot how enthralled I was by this guys voice.


I hope youve never heard this song.  Or at least I hope youve never heard this cool live version.

Yeah, that Ron song is his Here There and Everywhere or God Only Knows song.

Wow.  It's here already.
I actually didnt listen to your link...but I did get up and put on Al's Greatest Hits because of your post.  It's like the fourth or fifth song on the album, so I will listen to it.
I looooooove the drum sound they got on this song.


Chas and Dave are novelty singers.  Anyway.  This was a pretty big song when I lived there.

I cant believe you dug out a Gilbert OSullivan song!  I just love that guy.  I hadnt heard that song before.  Very nice.


I just came across a song that I didnt realize was recorded in my basement.  They must have come over while I was at work.  I told them they were always welcome to come over on any day.  Its not like they werent supposed to be here. I just didnt realize they filmed a song at my house until tonight.

Absolutely.  Not sure why.  They had prob seen so many audiences that it would take something special for them to liven up or they were just not in the mood to bring 100% of themselves to the show. Goodness knows why.

Great guitar sound. Great song.  Cool vibe to the song. 


I liked the live version A LOT.


The video was funny because it seemed like that was supposed to be his girlfriend lying to him and cheating.  Then you look at the guy singing and the guy she's cheating with...
if my wife met that guy I wouldn't see her for days! Ha!


It's cool that you posted that song because I'd never heard it nor had I ever heard of Colin James.

This is one of my favorite things about music.  Just a moment where artist and fans come together as one.


I also like it when when a person doesn't quite have the talent but is out there giving what they've got.  Wayne won't be going on The Voice any time soon.

Nice.  Nice!  And Id never heard that Cure tune, so that was extra cool.


Mine is a song from our gig last night.  We sucked but it was cramped. 


The city sets up tents for about 20 musicians and bands to play along one of our downtown streets.  We decided to park under the tent and set up in the car.

I like the backstory on this tune. George wrote it for Ronnie Spector, did the backing track, she didn't release it...so he did it himself. The reason his vocal is so high is that the backing track was in Ronnie's vocal range. I think George singing in that register gives the song lots of energy.

Listened to the whole song for the first time ever.  Ive played it in different bars a few times as the bass player but had never heard the whole song except for about 10-20 seconds of it.  Is there bass on any version of it?  Ive always made up a bass part when Ive been in on this song.


And...


This song has always been a favorite because of the lyrics.  I think Paul Simons lyrics are second to no ones.

Know who did that? A lady named Lari White, who's had her own singing career in Nashville, but might be as well known for being in the movie "Castaway". She played the lady whose package Tom Hanks delivers after his return to civilization. Well, it's assumed the package belongs to her....she's the lady at the intersection who gives Tom directions as he's leaving the road she is turning on to. Neat, huh?

BTW. Been a Mullins fan for years, but it was that production that made me buy it instantly.

I was so blown away with the great sound on the Mullins track, I HAD to know who was responsible.....it doesn't sound like a typical SM record. I mean, the sound on his records tends to be quite neutral, letting the song speak for itself. This album, not just the one song, had a sound unlike the rest of his. When I saw the name Lari White, I recognized it from the late 90's when she put a number of songs in the country charts. Same thing with "Castaway"....thought I recognized her in the movie and stayed for the credits to see if it was her. I had NO idea she was in the record production end of things now.

She was not an anti-war activist in the 60s.  Youd think she would have been.

Joni has been ill a lot of years, so when the grumpy guss starts flowing, everybody needs to get out of the way. It's sad that beautiful voice was ravaged by 50 years of smoking non-stop. Lovely song though. :)

Yeah, I've always been intrigued by singers who's phrasing is kind of all over the place, but it makes sense to the lyrics. Sinatra does it too. Van Morrison. Elton John. Probably others I don't recall at the moment. It's kind of cool really. You have a beautiful melody backing you, but the lyrics are more important. Here's another of his songs that Costello had a bit of a hit with.

I just got the feeling that Brown-eyed Handsome Man and Take it Easy by the Eagles have some...err..similarities.

A-a-arrested on charges of unemployment
He was sitting in the witness stand
The judges wife called up the district attorney
She said, "Free that brown-eyed man.
If you want your job, you better free that brown-eyed man."

Well, I'm running down the road

Two that wanna stone me,
One says she's a friend of mine

That was pretty cool.  I think it might have been even better if he had not played bass and just done vocals.  Thats maybe not a song to do both....esp for him because it seemed like he could have killed this with undivided attention.  Anyway...what a cool version.  Didnt know theyd done that.


And...Yes I ordered a Roger Whitaker lp because of you.  I hope it gets here before Saturday so I can play it at our record sale this weekend at our local university.

Anchor Me is my favourite Mutton Birds song. Thanks for sharing that I hadn't seen the acoustic version before, it's an excellent performance. Helen Kelly worked with me ex, nice homage to her.

But with the other video, I think with that video they were pressured by the record company to make a rock star version when they were trying to break through in the UK. This was the original video which seems more in keeping:

John Barry teamed up with lyricist Don Black and wrote the song "Thunderball". The song was sung by Tom Jones who, according to Bond production legend, fainted in the recording booth after singing the song's final, high note. Jones said of the final note: "I closed my eyes and I held the note for so long when I opened my eyes the room was spinning."

There was a tribute album put out a few years ago that Brian Wilson gave this song a go. It was cool, but I was so disappointed to hear that Justin Currie chickened out and picked a different tune. When Jimmy Webb personally asks you do do a song,  you should probably not chicken out.  :(

You know, there's a podcast called "Swinging through the sixties" that just did an epp about what they termed the worst songs ever to chart....and this one was included. They were quick to point out that they didn't mean it was a good song, just a bad choice of singers. I disagree wholly with them....Richard Harris brings just the right amount of pathos to the party.

Weird.  I just watched a doc on The Bangles.  They are pretty cool with cool roots.

I wonder how much money Ray Davies has made from this song. I've always liked it, and everyone covering it did a great job.  :)

I didnt know he wrote that and I really wasnt that familiar with the Pretenders version but I do remember hearing it long ago.


What a great tune.  Chrissie is so bad ass.  What a great great talent. 


Davies is a great songwriter that I was never that familiar with until the last couple years.


Side note:
You ever read his review of Revolver when he first heard it?
Wow.  Its quite something.

Yeah, the Pretenders version was the first time I heard it too.
Sia did a nice job too.

I'll look up the review. Thanks for the heads up.  :)

I think I heard in the past that Ray and Chrissie were a couple at one point and that's how she got the song. The Kinks never recorded it, which is bizarre really. How many great songs are out there that are still in demo form.

Yeah I think they did date or something around that time.

Ha!
Now we are torn between Chrissie and Sharon...after having to watch a Bangles video last week.
Posting a picture of Linda Ronstadt from the 60s will only make it worse.

Man, that Valdy song is terrific!! Why have I never heard of that guy?
Title: Re: Your Song for the Weekend.
Post by: 2 of 3 on April 27, 2018, 04:28:37 PM
Cuz he's Canadian and gets snowed in a lot? ;)

He's been around forever. Has a bunch of (hit) songs here from many years ago. He's playing here in June. I should probably go!

There is a Live version of that Simple Life song that is my favourite. I can not find it anywhere...not even on his albums. I played it all the time off an album in the olden days though...so I'm wondering if it's on a compilation or something.

Ha.  All music I never would have heard.  And yes Valdy is great.  Never heard his stuff ever.


3 of my friends who manage to come over for music a few times every year were filmed doing this song up the street at our library.
I don't know the bass player or horn player.

Pretty nice. I'd never heard of them before so I watched a few other videos too. Nice groove and I really like the keyboards. Sort of plays piano like Howard Jones.  :)

That's what I was thinking, too. And the production is pretty nice and clean for a new record.

A lot of people up here in Canuckistan hate this song. Not sure why. I think it's a great pop song.  :)

Nick Heyward.....haven't thought about this guy since the 80's. Then he went on a pub tour with Thomas Walsh from Pugwash and I looked him up. Great stuff, well worth the time to check out!
