Rod McKuen died earlier in the week. I was never particularly a fan, but he did write at least one absolute classic, "Love's Been Good To Me". So to mark his passing, here are a few versions. To be honest, Frank Sinatra's is so perfect you don't really need any others, but they are all worth a listen. Sonny Wong provides the designated reggae version, not that any reggae-fication is particularly noticeable.
"Love's Been Good To Me" - Frank Sinatra
"Love's Been Good To Me" - Tom Jones
"Love's Been Good To Me" - Johnny Cash
"Love's Been Good To Me" - Sonny Wong
This was Rod's biggest hit. All together now, "We had joy, we had fun, we had Tottenham on the run..."

Seasons In The Sun, it's just too sickly-syrupy-twee, isn't it? Sonny Wong seems to sing a bit of key at times. Johnny Cash version surely the best, though Ernie.ReplyDelete
...All her eyes were tender, all her arms were warm....did I hear that correctly? What the hell was he singing about?ReplyDelete
