Everly songs

Because it is May 1st tomorrow and we will have a new song to discuss then, I realise I have to get all the versions I found onto the site tonight/day.

This next version is more in keeping with how the Everly Brothers sang it, it is Cliff Crofford and Billy Mize.

Nana McLean was on the version I posted a few quotes ago, this time she is cited as singing this on her own, a big drum in the background of this one.

Al Campbell singing yet another Reggae version.

The Prophets - AKA the Gladiators. I posted a version of them singing with Jimmy London and Nana McLean earlier, it seems some really love the Reggae sound of this song.

Gary Lewis and the Playboys - not another Reggae version, but like I said only a few hours before we have another song so I am digging as many up as I can find!! Smile

Re post # 598

Publishing companies are stingy and lazy.

The EBs play the song in F# (interesting to doodle around with only the black keys in the piano -- or accordion --... ), which would require 6 sharps on the score. Instead they transcribe it in F, which only needs one single flat. The piano part has nothing to do with what Floyd Cramer does on the record. The "classic" style transcription, with (high and low case) Roman numerals is better, though with no melody.

Beware of transcriptions, they're usually misleading or downright wrong!

Excellent live TV performance!!!

LYRICS TO "IT ONLY COSTS A DIME" COMPOSED BY DON AND PHIL EVERLY:

Why don’t you ever call me
I know you’ve got the time
I’m always near the phone waiting here alone
Oh baby, it only costs a dime
Did you throw away my number
Or did it slip your mind
There’re so many things to say
And you’re so far away
Oh baby, aren’t I worth a dime
Just the sound of your voice
And I can sleep at night
Just a word or two from you
Would make the sun shine bright
Why don’t you ever call me
I know you’ve got the time
I’m always near the phone waiting here alone
Oh baby, it only costs a dime

"It Only Costs a Dime" is the flip side of "The Price of Love"

"The Bye Bye Blackbirds" sing this song from 2008
