Song of the day: Joe Cocker- Summer In The City

After the original version of yesterday, I am making it easy for myself today. I’m going to talk about the cover version by Joe Cocker. And this is one of the covers which are not worse than the original, those which you could easily have lived without. This cover version is good because it’s different than the original: if you listened to the original yesterday, you can say that it’s a bit rock ‘n roll, and it has something of most music of the sixties: it’s quick.

This version is some slower and it’s excellent that Joe Cocker made this version: he has just the right voice to sing it. His voice sounds a bit rough, the perfect voice for the song.

So today, enjoy

Song of the day: Lovin’ Spoonful- Summer In The City

Searching for some old songs on YouTube, all from the sixties, I came across this song. It was a long time ago I first heard the original of the Joe Cocker version, but I appreciated it more this time. It really was a shame I wouldn’t want to hear the full version, since it’s quite good (actually…)

So for today a golden oldie, enjoy:
