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
Joe Cocker- 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:
The Lovin’ Spoonful- Summer In The City
The new song of the day is here!
Although I have not seen the movie where the song of the day comes from, I do know the song, and I think it’s a very good song.
It’s sung by a woman who made a song for Dirty Dancing, too, and the man had a hit with a cover of the Loving Spoonful.
It are Joe Cocker and Jennifer Warnes with Up Where We Belong.
The song comes from the movie An Officer And A Gentleman, Jennifer Warnes sung the song I’ve Had The Time Of My Life in Dirty Dancing, and Joe Cocker made a cover of the song Summer In The City.
Tomorrow another song!
