Song of the day: Julie Covington- Don’t Cry For Me Argentina


Probably this is one of the most beautiful songs ever sung. Just like the song of yesterday, the lyrics are written by Tim Rice, and the music is done by Andrew Lloyd Webber. It was on the concept album Evita, and later included in the musical. Julie Covington plays the character of Eva Perron, and she sings it during a scene on a balcony. In the UK the song would chart on number 1. Later the song would be recorded by Madonna, but it does not have the same effect, I think. Listen to

Song of the day: Murray Head- One Night In Bangkok

We’re going into the eighties today! The song of today came from a musical, which had music written by two members of ABBA, the two B’s: Benny Anderson and Björn Ulvaeus. The lyrics were written by Tim Rice and Björn Ulvaeus. And the recording of the songs? That was done by different persons, and the one who probably had the most success with it, was Murray Head with the song of the day. It was number 3 in the US and number 12 in the UK, but in lots of countries it was number one. The original version changes abruptly into music, which is strange if you forget that it was part of the musical Chess. Enjoy
