Alone again or  performed by Love & Arthur Lee  196?
Recommended by AndreasNystrom [profile]

Very different sounding song for me. It sounds like a mix of late 60ies pop with arabic/turkish influences. A bit sad sounding, but still there is hope :)
I love it cause its got great harmonies, and a mix of guitars, violins, and spanish guitars.

  21 May 03 ·john_l: Great song from a great LP, which naturally I hated when I first bought it and didn't re-discover until 1980, after hearing the (very good) UFO cover of "Alone Again Or" from their "Lights Out" LP!
  03 Feb 06 ·leonthedog: My first experience with this song was a cover version by The Damned ... it's actually very true to the original in my opinion - bold acoustic guitars, trumpets and all. Give it a listen!
Without Her  performed by Herb Alpert  1968
Recommended by AndreasNystrom [profile]

This is a cover of Harry Nilssons song with the same name. Herb Alpert and the tijuana brass makes a wonderfull representation of the song, with very spare instrumentation. This is a song i can listen to on repeat for hours.
The song is really just this guy singing about how he cant live without her, and a guitar silently and spare playing along in the background, until the song explodes into lots of brass and horns playing with him.

Beatles were also fans by Harry Nilsson btw.

  08 Jul 03 ·johnnyweissmueller: This is perhaps one of the greatest songs of all time! I can say without a doubt that I have spent days listening to this one; it got me addicted. I just couldn't keep my finger away from the repeat button. I recommend the original by Harry Nilsson, who isn't with us anymore.
  07 Dec 05 ·Swinging London: Yes, great songs & so many people tried to have hits with it...little Lulu springs to mind, but every version failed to dent the charts.
