Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

"I cry alone" by Ruby and the Romantics: I noticed that this record has the writer's credit of "David-Bacharach". That's the first time I've seen the credits this way round, as opposed to "Bacharach-David". I suspect however that if I trawled through all the recordings of their work I would find oth...

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

I have just posted "Please let go" by Stephanie Mills, which was the only track from her "For the first time" album of Bacharach/David songs which wasn't yet on Youtube. "Please let go" was the final track on the album, but is arguably one of the best tracks. I usually find the tracks on most albums...

Carola Haggkvist: Someday

Burt Bacharach co-wrote one song on Eurovision queen Carola's album "My Time" released in 2001, the song is called "Someday", written with Steven Krikorian aka "Tonio K". After "Someday" there is a hidden track "The ways of life" which was certainly not written by Bacharach. I appear to be the first...

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

Here's a gentle Bacharach/David tune recorded by Bobby Vee which I've uploaded: "That's the way I'll come to you". I like it a lot, but to my surprise no-one except me has viewed it yet after it's been on Youtube for 3 days! Some videos take time to get going. Here it is: https://www.youtube.com/wat...

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

Freddie and the Dreamers were a group from Manchester, England, who were very popular in the early 60's. They only recorded one Bacharach/David song as far as I know, and I am the first person to upload it to Youtube, quite a good song for Freddie's jaunty style. "I fell in love with your picture". ...

Re: Put Your Youtube.com Links Here! (if you want)

I am a keyboard player and have uploaded two covers of songs from "Lost Horizon" a few weeks ago: however, they have received very few views so far. I am the only person ever to have done a vocal cover of "Share the joy" or so it seems, and only one other person, Ed Ames, has done a vocal cover of "...

If I could go back (Lost Horizon)

I have uploaded Tony Bennett's cover, good vocal I reckon:


Other people who have covered this song and are on Youtube are Andy Williams, Dorothy Squires and Richard Harris.
