Heard this one on American Horror Story S04E01. Couldn't get it out of my head. Stayed in tonight so, thought I'd give it a try. I didn't know the song too well and was getting too incapable of playing to figure out the end. I just kinda winged it. More and more I consider Bowie one of the absolute best vocalists of his genres.
My entry in the country Tag i'm playing with my brother... I think my Dad used to do this one, but i'm not sure.. I do remember it from growing up.. I really like Freddy Fender's version of this. (my apologies to Spanish speakers hehe)
Tony Orlando was hot as shit back in the 70s. I remember on my street we all had these colorful portable transistor radios, and you could always here this song on WRKO. Even back then I had a taste for the campy, dixie sort of ragtime sounding tune. This is a quick recording with no additional parts. Keeping it simple tonight. Didn't even do the key change! (on this take anyway)
Have been meaning to add some vocals on this one. Was inspired today when came across Donnie Osmond singing this one, which I'd never heard before. I liked his version and I stole his backing vocals (sort of)
Have always loved this Neil Sedaka tune. Even as a kid, there was something about the beat, and the backing vocals. It was cool to later find out that Elton John did the backing vocals. I recorded this back in July 2014, and added some of the backing vocals in August. Never finished it but picked it up today to add the Elton Bad Blood echoing, and the harmonies on the ending. I also added a 3rd harmony on the Do Run Runs today.
Heard this song the other day and loved it. I'm a big fan of Hank Marvin's guitar playing, and well cliff, man that guy has a mellow voice I love it. For those who get the connection, this one is dedicated to Rik Mayall.
