Broken Heart  performed by Spiritualized  1998
Recommended by tinks [profile]

A different version than the one that appears on "Ladies and Gentlemen We are Floating in Space", this one features a slightly slower tempo, a full gospel choir and some lushly arranged strings and horns. Absolutely beautiful...a longer instrumental version also appears on the EP.

from Abbey Road (EP), available on CD (Arista)

  11 May 01 ·delicado: this was on my list to recommend too...but I've only heard the album version...what an astounding track! Will have to check out the EP...

Everyday Is Like Sunday  performed by Pretenders  1988
Recommended by FlyingDutchman1971 [profile]

While I am quite fond of the original version written and recorded by Morrissey, I have to admit that I prefer the cover version that the Pretenders recorded. Chrissie Hynde's voice and style are perfectly suited to the task of singing this movingly sad song about life "in a seaside town that they forgot to close down" and the use of slide-guitar is absolutely perfect on this track.

from Boys On The Side - Soundtrack, available on CD (Arista 18748)

  14 Jul 04 ·mattypenny: I'll have to try to find this. The Pretenders also did a cover of Radiohead's Creep - I think its a B-side (can CD singles have B-sides?) which is cracking - I much prefer it to Radiohead's versh.
  09 Nov 06 ·FlyingDutchman1971: The Pretenders cover of 'Creep' is included on the 4-CD/1-DVD box set "Pirate Radio". I couldn't agree more, mattypenny, it is better than the original...
Halfway Down The Stairs  performed by Jim Henson performing as "Robin"  1977
Recommended by FlyingDutchman1971 [profile]

A wonderful little song written by the creator of Winnie the Pooh and perfectly performed by the creator of the Muppets. It has no agenda, doesn't really have a message of any kind, it is just a straightforward sweet little song.

from The Muppet Show (Arista AB 4152)

  02 Nov 06 ·FlyingDutchman1971: I recently obtained a copy of the recording, 'Carol Channing sings the Pooh Song Book'. A charming rendition of this song is featured on the recording.
Chattahoochee  performed by Alan Jackson  1992
Recommended by gopeeinafridge [profile]

Bahaha! I had to put this song up. This is the most ridiculous, cheesy, terrible country song possible, but I love it. The music video features Alan waterskiing wearing his cowboy hat and cowboy boots, and tubing while playing his guitar. Then they all have a ho-down. He is an ultimate cowboy.

Good song for barbequeing.

from A Lot About Livin' (And A Little 'Bout Love) (Arista 18711-2)
