Don't Go Breaking My Heart  performed by Burt Bacharach  1965
Recommended by m.ace [profile]

A super-sweet bossa-pop tune. From one of Burt's solo LPs, but actually sung by an unnamed female trio who do magical things with the hypnotically pretty melody line.

from Hit Maker! (Kapp)


Much Too Much  performed by James Crawford  1965
Recommended by tinks [profile]

A James Brown-produced James Brown-soundalike with a deep bass undertow and a truly odd mariachi flavor.

from the single Much Too Much (Mercury)


tears of a clown  performed by mark holmes  1965
Recommended by jmadferit [profile]

there is nothing like hearing mark holmes count down into this explosive cover. it's tops. you should check it out. in fact, check out all of his compilations.

from Mark holmes compilation 12 (sony 90210), available on CD


Off and Running  performed by Lesley Gore  1965
Recommended by tinks [profile]

Here's a really cool one. This is Lesley Gore doing a cover of the Mindbenders' stomping mod classic "Off and Running", which originally appeared on the "To Sir, With Love" soundtrack. This version completely outpaces the original, in my opinion.

from the single Off and Running (Mercury)
available on CD - Sunshine, Lollipops & Rainbows: The Best of Lesley Gore (Rhino)



Some of your lovin'  performed by Dusty Springfield  1965
Recommended by delicado [profile]

This song is a little more....soulful.. than lots of the stuff I listen to. I find it utterly charming though. Dusty was a goddess, and singing this lovely, simple Goffin/King song she completely slays me. It's a slow arrangement in which Dusty is accompanied by piano, light, gospel-style backing vocals and unobtrusive strings. There's nothing complex or especially clever here; just beautifully executed and perfectly distilled pop.

from the single Some of your lovin'
available on CD - Silver Collection (Philips)




  02 Feb 02 ·Mike: Nice pun on "slays" and "executed" there.
  07 Dec 05 ·Swinging London: Dusty said that this was the only song she sang that she actually took home after recording it and played it over & over.
