  • Does it for me , everytime

    It occurred to me today that I would buy anything with a cover version of 'Caravan' on it. the same would apply to 'Tomorrow Never Knows' and for no particular reason I'm always drawn to versions of 'Fool on a Hill'. (strangely I've little time for that Beatles band).
    Is anyone else stangely drawn to certain titles other than the obligatory 'anything by James Brown'.
    I'm also morbidly attracted to death references in song titles which may be some subconcious attempt to face my own mortality or maybe I'm a sublimating Goth, which is very worrying.

    I profess a inkling for one of the old fav's - 'light my fire', copped some weird aussie record with a cover of this a few weeks back, its ok but not as good as another aussie record I have with a cover of 'yesterday' but still ..

    still kick myself over passing on a german guitar Lp that had a cover of 'black magic woman' - the intrique!

    one day my computer problems will be resolved and I'll submit a chart!

          Misirlou would get me everytime also. Stanley Black's 'Exotic Percussion' version would be my choice and that has Caravan on the same album - so a double whammy.

            I collect versions of "Hush" for the same reason Nick seeks out "Come Together" - the bassline is so damned funky....
            Got these so far... Joe South, Purps, Jeannie C Riley, Senate, Four Blazers, Tamara, Johnny Hallyday, Bluemen, Somebody's Image, Lemon Tree, Love Affair, I Colours, Giuliana Girardi, Complex, Sylvana Velasco, Donnie Brooks, Kris Ife, Jennie Black, Les Hou-Lops, Billy Joe Royal, BB + The Oscars, Woody Herman, Funky Junction, Linda Fletcher, Prisoners, PrimeMovers, Goolie Shaker plus a few others I'm sure.

            Anyone got any other suggestions (apart for seeing my GP)??

            Is it "Downtown Venus" by PM Dawn which samples the track btw?

              yeah, Caravan and Misirlou are two i always look out for - i&#39;ve got a spare of that Stanley Black (maybe his only good album?) if anyone wants it.

              also Comin&#39; Home Baby, Spinning Wheel, any Beatles cover, and covers of the big soul hits like Hard to Handle. etc...

                      Spinning Wheel - don&#39;t know how many I&#39;ve got now but there always seems to be more....oh and Soulful Strut too.

                        This&#39;ll come as know surprise to anyone - mine is &#39;Let The Sunshine In&#39;. Although I&#39;m cautious of it in medley format with &#39;Aquarius&#39; (Don Reeve, consider yourself warned).

                        Other than that and the aforementioned &#39;Light My Fire&#39;, &#39;Spinning Wheel&#39;, &#39;Ode To Billy Joe&#39; and &#39;Coming Home Baby&#39; I&#39;m now keeping my Eagle Eyes open for &#39;Na Na Hey Hey Kiss Goodbyes&#39;, &#39;Sweet Peas&#39; and &#39;Honky Tonk Women&#39; (I love the pattern of the break).

                        And surely there&#39;s better versions of &#39;Son Of Hickory Holler&#39;s Tramp&#39; than O.C Smith&#39;s (not that it&#39;s not great itself)?
                        You freeking scientologists are all the same, quible, dribble and then demand ice creams. Ohhhhhhhhhhh.

                          Jack Hawkins ?

                          Seconded votes for &#39;Come Together&#39; (Diana Ross, Detroit Sound), &#39;Spinning Wheel&#39; (too many to mention)...but I&#39;d add &#39;Aint No Sunshine&#39; (all the cheapo hits versions seem to pretty much identical) &amp; &#39;I Gotcha&#39; (Liza Minelli &amp; Lori Wells - the same arrangement on both, but crackers all the same)
