    Hi, Brian! Excellent theme, but, I, too, wanted to do my "nothing" song! Feeling guilty about doing anything at all, because my husband is still very unwell; but, somehow, playing the uke is therapeutic. Played this on my steel string baritone (or, to be perfectly honest, my new - to me! - Ashbury tenor guitar, tuned DGBE.) Is this allowed???

    Just to keep everyone guessing as to what I might try next, here's a deep cut from Ulrich Roth, minus the guitar heroics.

    Never mind the words, just hum along and keep on going...

    Here's an original for you, Pa. I think I worked the word "never" in there somewhere.

    Here's the first thing I thought of, and it really needed to be done--sing along, everyone! (and that's all the information you're getting until you watch the video!)....

    A very little ALWAYS paoriginal - a whole 10 minutes gone into this one but I had to do a blues in Bb. I did cheat and use a capo.



    I really appreciate the originals that have already come in and would LOVE some more!

    I sang this a whole octave low because I can't touch Brad Delp's vocals.

    Everything is shut down for the aftermath of the hurricane--even our church services were cancelled today. So I don't have anything to do but sit around and sing songs.

    Anyway, I was stunned when I read up on the history of this song. Written by Hal David and Burt Bacharach, first recorded by Dionne Warwick in 1963, but only as a demo.

    Lou Johnson's version went to #49 on the Billboard Hot 100 in 1964.

    Later that same year, Sandy Shaw recorded it and it went to #1 in the U.K., #16 in Australia, #7 in Ireland, and #10 in the Netherlands. She recorded a French version that went to #2 in France and a German version that failed to chart.

    Dionne Warwick recorded it again in 1967 as an actual release and it went to only #65 in the U.S.

    R.B. Greaves (never heard of him) recorded it in 1970 and it went to #27 in the U.S., finally getting some success here.

    It was recorded by a truck load of different artists that spanned multiple genres without success.

    And all this time I thought it was just a huge hit for Naked Eyes in 1983. It went to #8 in the U.S., #7 in Australia, #9 in Canada, #2 in New Zealand, but only to #59 in the U.K.

    I do not expect this cover to chart.
