A number-eight hit for Paula Cole back in 1997. Pretty neat song – before looking it up, I thought it had been recorded earlier in the 90’s, say 1993, 1994 or so.
This is one of those Madonna songs I’ve really liked over the years. It went to #3 on the US Charts in the fall of 1986 and scored a number one in the UK around the same time frame.
Every time I’ve been watching the Vegas Golden Knights play lately, this song has been going through my head.
The song is from the musical Man of La Mancha and has been performed scores of times by different artists. The 1966 version performed by Jack Jones is probably the most well-known version, but I went with Elvis’s version from June 10, 1972, recorded at Madison Square Garden.
A hit from 1983 from this Danish duo, reaching #26 on the Billboard but making the R&B top five that same year. It was by far the group’s biggest American hit to date with a history stretching from the 70’s to the current decade.
My next post will be Wednesday, with Memorial Day on Monday.
Another one of those songs that you might not remember the title, but you know the song when you hear it.
One of those songs you might not know the title of, but you know it when you hear it. First released in 1983, but not a single here in the US until 1988.
This British band had bigger hits before and after this 1983 single, but I always liked this one the best, peaking at #8 on the Billboard charts.
