    I agree. Here is a composition written by Harrison and covered by Yusuf Islam, formerly Cat Stevens, entitled "The Day The World Gets Round" from "Living in the Material World" recorded in 1973 by Harrison.



    Also on the album was the immensely popular:

    Give Me Love (Give Me Peace On Earth)

    Rundquist A-List Customer

    Yeah GH was awesome. Speaking of Cat Stevens and covers, I wish that they would release the Elvis Costello version of "Sitting" already.

    I've been listening to this since it seems like forever.


    The 80's were crappy, but it's nice when one of the excesses of the time meant a full sax section, which Billy's band always had (not that I consider horns an excess, anything but). When this was done, I clicked on the Michael Buble cover. Just horrible. He destroys another one, lol.
  6. Ben Selvin and his Orchestra

    He's Not Worth Your Tears, Helen Rowland vocal (1931)


    Am I Blue? (1929) ... love this song no matter who sings it :)

    Often overlooked are Ondrej Havelka's recordings in the Czech language. This one is my favorite.

    Sám S Děvčetem V Dešti
    (Alone With A Girl In The Rain)


    The whisper of the rain echoes
    It echoes still in my soul
    It rains all around me
    And I don't know where to go
    I walk with my girl in the rain
    I walk and my head's delirious
    The world is gray and I hesitate in my heart
    Why does everything revolve around the eyes of my girl?
    Why does love enter though you don't want it?
    Alone with a girl in the rain
    Alone and my head's delirious
    Raindrops caress my face
    The cold wind blows
    And I don't know where to go

    Do you recollect the day I fell for you?
    It was all as sudden as could be
    Something told me I'd do very well for you
    And you'd do very very well for me

    The moment I saw you I said to myself
    You're too nice a baby to leave on the shelf
    Your neatness! Your sweetness! Your two eyes of blue!
    Bewitched me completely and I fell for you

    The moment I saw you. The fur coat you wore
    The diamonds! Your perfume! I knew more and more
    That you were the girl I was meant to adore
    I knew it the moment I saw you

    Somehow I can't find words that seem to me
    Good enough to tell you what you're worth
    Yes, I realize how much you mean to me
    Believe me, you're the sweetest thing on earth

    The moment I saw you, you gave me a glance
    I followed behind you, my brain in a trance.
    I felt so excited because I could see
    That heaven was sending an angel to me

    The moment I saw you, the girl of my choice
    Your footman! The chauffeur! It made me rejoice
    I may like Minervas but you're my Rolls Royce
    I knew it the moment I saw you

    1933 Minerva
