Re: New Elvis Costello album

I know where you're coming from re- Elvis's voice but he sure can convey emotion...which leads me to favor his take on God Give Me Strength or This House is Empty Now over trijntje's (love her voice) or anyone else's...

Re: Concert choice

This was the first time I ever heard this song and I was blown away by it.
Still think this is a phenomenal arrangement and vocal.

Dionne - Odds & Ends album

Did I miss a discussion about this one ?

I listened to a track called Amanda which I'd never heard.
It features some strange percussion choices but some classic Bacharach hooks...

Re: Herb Alpert's next album includes new Bacharach-Costello composition

Would definitely love to hear the vocal version of this.
I'm hearing something along the lines of, "oh - if I could just become forgetful....."

Re: Olympics Music

This came in my Spotify discover weekly list. Interesting concept and seems to be very well done.

There is a whole album's worth - including Aretha's version of Walk On By..but this one is good.

Bruce

I’ve always thought the E-Street Band could do a great version of (There Goes) The Forgotten Man. I doubt there will be anything like that on Bruce’s next album but - interesting to read that it was influenced by Glen Campbell, Jimmy Webb and Burt... http://variety.com/2017/music/news/bruce-springst...

Thats a monumental song and about the best vocal you’re ever gonna get from Jimmy.
Devastating.

Re: Most complex Bacharach song ever

Amazing to see Dionne sing that version of Who Gets The Guy. So effortless. Phenomenal. I feel under-qualified to evaluate song complexity but these seem like they belong on this list: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qj4ijgUhpLA https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=o8ByJ1C0iR4

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

Fantastic. How did Hal David come up with the line, “Sail when the wind starts to blow” ?
