Simply Red Holding Back the Years

 

 

If You Don't Know Me By Now

 

Sounding a lot like Tony Bennett, Smile

 

 

You've Got It

 

 

Money's Too Tight To Mention

 

Something Got Me Started

 

Never Never Love 

 

 

The Right Thing

 

 


I like Simply Red. That said, I just have to comment on Money's Too Tight To Mention. I understand that it's not always easy to fit the right sylables into the right music for a masterpiece. Sometimes you have to sacrifice the right lyrics for the right music, and vice versa. However, what stood out to me, was that in this song, they missed a good opportunity to have a real big hit. With a little tweaking, if they changed the song to Money's Too Tight To Get Loose, they could have had a great hit here. It's the little things that make the difference between good and great. I really think they could have pulled it off.

I aggree that the verdict is out on the  Moody Bluegrass,

but it was pretty cool.  But the Moodies were a talent that

could not be duplicated.

 

I did not know that much about Simply Red.  All I really knew

was a couple of the hit songs. "Holding back the years" and

"If you don't know me by now",  So  YouTube here I come......

The song "Smile" that was done in Cuba was great.  It was very

well orchestrated.  I loved the string section.

"You make me feel brand new" (The Stylistics) was awesum.

Then there was >> "Song for you" (I love the Carpenter's version).

But I felt that Simple Red did it justice.  Very nicely done....

I played it twice.  I believe from looking at the video, that this was

done in Cuba.  (I took a major hint from all the vintage cars driving

around)

"Never never love", "It's only love" ,"The right thing"!  They are

great songs.   Thank you for the posting.

Right now I listening Michael Buble'.......

Just the right music to listen to while working

around the house.  Michael knows how to sing

the standards and classics I like... I was sad to

learn months ago that his little boy had cancer.

But the good news is that he is doing better.

Mr.Buble' is another great humanitarian..He

makes the world around him a great place to

be in.  And extends it out to all his fans.

 

 

But with love and miracles,  we can find a cure

for cancer.  There is hope for all of us.....    🙂

While I was doing my usual YouTube search.

I came upon an album called "Moody Bluegrass",

A nashville tribute to the Moody Blues...

It was interesting.  It was nice to hear a music

city like  NASHVILLE  playing a tribute to an

international band.  The Moody Blues made it

in Tennessee...Awesome...

I checked them out (Moody Bluegrass). They're not bad. However, just knowing that there's a Moody Blues version out there, makes me want to hear their version instead. Nobody can do it like the Moody Blues. It was kind of weird to hear a bluegrass version of Just A Singer In A Rock & Roll Band. I don't know what to make of that. But again, they weren't bad. Interesting. The jury's still still out.

Would you believe an hour of Viking songs?  Sounds a lot like the Scottish group Albannach to me.

I listen to Classical Music, mainly late romantic and early 20th century.

I do a lot of listening while driving around in my car on errands, etc.  Today I was listening to a CD of hits from 1982.  I was especially enjoying "Shake It Up" by the Cars, "Gloria" by Laura Branigan, "Rosanna" by Toto, and best of all, "Eye In The Sky" by The Alan Parsons Project!
