Everly songs

Ricardo's linked version in 763# of Josh White's "I'm Gonna Move to the Outskirts of Town" is so very bluesy. To get the full impact of someone singing as good as Josh White does I would want to sit down quietly and close my eyes, or even better to have seen him sing live.

Ricardo you have brought Josh White to my attention several times in the last couple of years and thank you for that.
Ricardo's offering in #759 interestingly demonstrates the variety a different rhythm or pacing can do to a song, live or recorded. It also shows that there is always lot of real work behind the lights and glamour!

The following video dovetails on what Ricardo presented before. It puts some of the Takes, with the addition of a Take 7, together linked by the conversation and critiques made between them.

"A great example of how a live studio recording takes shape and refines over time like an artist with a painting, but in this case take after take. The song gets progressively slower with each passing take, but ultimately the entire style (including the horn arrangements) are changed to a go-go!" (by keoki the poster)

AYAYAYAYAY!!! I meant Take 7...(changing error in #767)

By the way, the alternative version , which you posted Ricardo (page 51 #759), is my favorite! I have to dance to it, Latin style!

"NO ONE CAN MAKE MY SUNSHINE SMILE" - LYRICS


Lyrics
No one can make my sunshine smile
She goes out seven nights a week
But she's unhappy all the whi-ile
Each night a different guy-uy
Does his very best to try, but
No one can make my sunshine smile
My sunshine used to smile for me
But then she traded me for sty-yle
Now she's got Romeo
Who'll buy her fancy clothes, but
No one can make my sunshine smile
Once her smile could light up the room
And make the sun look dim
Her laugh in her eyes went away
Her makin' my day begin

But since she said goodbye to me
She hasn't smiled for quite a while
I was just her little clown
But since I'm not around, well
No one can make my sunshine smile
No one can make my sunshine smile
No one can make my sunshine smile

Ricardo some of your links on Page 51 #757 and #759 of "No One Can Make my Sunshine Smile" i.e. 'Rare', Take 7 and alternate take sound like a trumpet is being played. Is it a trumpet or something similar?

Gloria mentions the Latin sound, it reminds me of a Samba dance, is that Latin? Smile

Fan comments:
"They couldn't have known a day would come when this video/song would have such significance."

"the sweetest voices in a bitter day"

"Bitter sweet and glad I heard this today."

"Thank you both. Let us never forget those lost and those who lost. May God grant them peace"

"I had actually never heard this song before, nor had I even heard of it, but I have to say that I was quite moved to discover it on this sad anniversary. I am also quite curious as to what year this was recorded. Rather haunting, I must say. Thanks for sharing it."

BOBBY VEE sings "No One Can Make My Sunshine Smile". The attached video is from a previously unreleased recording.

Born in Fargo, North Dakota



Robert Thomas Velline (April 30, 1943 – October 24, 2016), known professionally as Bobby Vee, was an American rock and roll and pop singer who was a teen idol in the early 1960s. According to Billboard magazine, he had thirty-eight Hot 100 chart hits, ten of which reached the Top 20. He had six gold singles in his career.

Vee's career began in the midst of tragedy. Three of the four headline acts in the lineup of the traveling Winter Dance Party (Buddy Holly, Ritchie Valens, and the Big Bopper) were killed in a plane crash. Vee with his musical group of friends, the Shadows volunteered to help and were chosen to fill in for Buddy Holly . Their performance there was a success, setting in motion a chain of events that led to Vee's career as a popular singer. ( information from wikipedia)
