The Songfactors' Choice Top Ten #150

Recommended Posts

Seeing that TT50 list inspired me to nominate another song that had also been nominated that week:

A Change is Gonna Come-Sam Cooke (1964)

It seems all the you tubes I can find of Sam Cooke's original have been deleted due to copyright restrictions, however I am posting a video from Barack Obama's inauguration concert performed by Bettye LaVette & Jon Bon Jovi.

And the only song that can go with it is the song that inspired "A Change", and a riveting performance by a legendary singer prominent in Obama's campaign:

Blowin in the Wind-Stevie Wonder (1966)

1. Life During Wartime - Talking Heads (That's right, I nominated this one!)

2. James Dean - Eagles (The man IS a cultural icon....a gay one that couldn't drive very well, but a cultural icon nonetheless.)

3. Chicago (We Can Change The World) - Graham Nash (Classic, plain and simple.)

4. She Sells Sanctuary - The Cult (I would have loved to hear this one with Jim Morrison on lead vocals.)

5. My Life - Billy Joel (Oh, that Peter Scolari...what a talent!)

6. Eve - The Heavy Sandwich (Can someone tell me where might I purchase this sure-to-be-classic tune?)

7. Blueberry Hill - Fats Domino (Yeah, Ol' Fats found his thrill - and apparently his appetite - up there.)

8. Far Far Away - Slade (I think Slade should get their kids to form a band.....SONS OF SLADE!! :rockon: )

9. Waterfall - The Stone Roses (MANCHESTER RULES!!)

10. Minnie the Moocher - Cab Calloway (I loved Cab's remake of his own tune in "The Blues Brothers". Who does he think he is....Ozzy Osbourne?!)

Hmmm. Yours truly nominated it in Top Ten #46 and again in #67 and included it my Personal Top Ten list.

The song written and recorded by Shuggie Otis, but the Bros. Johnson version is a definite case of "cover even better than the original".
