This is, without question, one of my favorite songs, so it’s not surprising I’ve got it on my most used playlist. It’s actually on there more than once, but I won’t admit exactly how many times…
Anyway, I think it’s one of the most romantic songs I’ve ever heard, and perfect to listen to when I’m writing and editing.
I’ve always adored this song. I always thought it was undermarketed and appreciated. Did you hear Michael Buble’s cover? I still prefer this one, but that one’s not too bad, either.
I’ve never heard the Michael Buble cover, but will probably try to hunt it up now that I know there is one. But unless it’s Sawyer Brown doing remakes of old, boring country songs, I tend to think the original artists versions are the best. But Sawyer Brown… Six Days on the Road… Totally loved that song after Mark Miller got his hands on it. 😀
I get that. Although, to be fair, Neal McCoy also does great covers. I love his rendition of Then You Can Tell Me Goodbye.
The ones everyone else loves tend to leave me cold. Like Whitney’s version of “And I Will Always Love You” or the Fugees “Killing Me Softly.” Hubby silently starts counting in his head whenever they come on the radio to see how long I’ll tolerate it before I change the station. I think the longest I’ve lasted was about 10 seconds. 😀
Oh yeah….anything Neal McCoy does is totally worth listening to. And I’m very fond of Harry Connick Jr., and much as I like Neil Diamond music, I think UB40 did a better job with Red, Red Wine. But for most remakes, they’re never as good as the originals. 🙂
And now I’m off to watch UB40. 😀
