Rock : OVER THE YEARS….

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

I didn't even know that there were so many covers of this. I will have to take some time and give them all a listen!

Michael Buble cover is simply fab. He has one hell of a sweet smooth voice.

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

I like him… The orchestra is a bit over powering though. You don't want to announce that you are having a backstreet affair with Mrs Jones. 😎

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

I don't remember ever having heard this song before, but from what I've have heard of the first one, I have to check the covers out. I really like this first one.
Do you have a favorite of any of them?
I think that the women pack more of a punch. It's a haunting message!

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

I like Sparks, Neko Case and Billy MacKenzie’s versions equally. Mary Hopkins was married to Tony Visconti who produced both her version and the original by Sparks.

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

They are all very good.
When warning about Mother Earth Though, the message seems to need the woman's touch. biggrin.gif
Please don't tell me I'm sexist…

I didn't know that about Mary Hopkins.

Anyway, I really like this song.
This is definitely on my playlist!👍

Billy MacKenzie! There's a name I don't see mentioned much.

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

I have a special love for him. I wasn’t so mad about The Associates at first but their 2nd album ended up being a constant player on my Walkman and that madly emotional voice kept in my head long after he committed suicide. Hearing him singing Mother Earth while knowing that his suicide was connected to the death of his mother seals it for me.

Great song. I have heard all, but Emmylue on this one.
This one is everyone's song. I like that. 😊

Emmylou Harris is one of my all-time favorite silver foxes. She looks absolutely stunning with silver gray hair. Judy Collins is another favorite silver fox of mine.

Both, beautiful voices.
Both, beautiful examples of aging gracefully. All women thinking of getting things done with their faces should take a leaf from their book. 👍

I really enjoyed the Saw Doctors cover. Love their Irish accents, and extra points for featuring Petula Clark in the video, who looks and sounds great.

Oh wow! I always liked the covers of I Think We're Alone Now, but I never heard Draggin the Line covers before.

Re: OVER THE YEARS….

Cameron Dye cover of Draggin' the Line was featured as part of the soundtrack for the fave teen comedy Don't Tell Mom the Babysitter's Dead. And I plead guilty as charged that I had a mad crush on Tiffany back in the 1980's.

Tiffany doing her music at the mall… She was cute. I can understand you guys liking her.

It was a few years after his death that I found out that John Denver had written it.
