SONG OF THE DAY Steve Young – Coyote
This is one of those rare occasions when I actually prefer a cover to the original and this rendition is pretty magic! Coyote is a song that was originally written by Peter La Farge in 1963 – though he titled … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Lecuona Cuban Boys – Tabou
Taboo, Tabu, or Tabou, depending which version you listen to, is a tune I never tire of! So much so, I’ve featured a couple of renditions already, which you can find here and here! What I love about this song is … Continue reading
(🎅Christmas Countdown🎄) SONG OF THE DAY Kevin Morby – Blue Christmas
Well, I can’t believe we have reached that time of year again!! Festive frolics await and to help you get into that Yuletime mood (just in case you need a little prodding..like me) I have a few little sonic merriments … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Ora Cogan – Katie Cruel
Well, two days in a row now I’ve featured a cover version but, as with yesterday’s song, what I like about this rendition is that it’s quite far removed from the original. Today’s haunting take on Karen Dalton’s spectacular Katie … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Lou Rawls – Evil Woman
Today’s song is another cover incidentally, but a total fluke that it happened to pop into my head after yesterday’s cover that I featured! The song I’m using today also has similarities with yesterday’s post in that this is not … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Rod McKuen – Sinner Man
I never realised until now just how many times this song has been covered since its earliest recording in 1956. I always knew Sinner Man (or Sinnerman) as this tremendous song by Nina Simone, but the original was released a … Continue reading

When the great US singer-songwriter, producer, saxophonist and trumpeter, Eugene McDaniels wrote this song, it was at a turning point in his music career. It was the late 1960’s and he had turned his sights to politics which, in turn, … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Dion – Spoonful
A very quick song before the arms of slumber come grabbing for me!! Today’s late offering unfolds in the splendour of Dion’s version of Spoonful. As far as cover’s go, his rendition really stands out, offering a new take on … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY El Chicano – Viva Tirado
Emerging from LA in the late 1960’s, El Chicano were originally formed by Freddie Sanchez under the title, The VIP’s. Their name change, which was altered soon after their formation, was taken from Chicano, a term for US citizens of … Continue reading
SONG OF THE DAY Johnny Burnette and The Rock ‘N Roll Trio – Honey Hush
“Lonnie Donegan inspired everyone [to play guitar] because he made it look as though it was possible to do. But who really moved it out of just playing acoustic to electric was all those people that were playing in the 1950s. Initially, it … Continue reading
