My favorite and maybe the best Andy Williams song. The unusual arangement and Williams' golden voice ....Listen and Enjoy....
Try these, as well:
Simon & Garfunkel, Andy Williams - Scarborough Fair / Canticle - Live
Andy Williams with Peter, Paul & Mary - Kisses Sweeter Than Wine
Garota de Ipanema, Jobim & Williams
“Moon River” very close to my favorite song of all time....I still like George Strait’s “Amarillo by Morning” and “Wildfire” by Micheal Martin Murphy.....
I was a rocker in the 60’s and would NEVER admit to liking the pop music my folks liked. But Andy Williams always put a smile on my face. What a great voice and a truly gentle, kind man.
Gotta agree...I switched over to XM Fifties on Five after I heard he’d passed and sure enough, they played this within a half-hour. Wonderful music that still touches the heart.
I remember this song very well, was one of my favourites.
Um......not loving, dude. I remember it too, extremely well done single. Great writing, great arranging.
(I’m a retired musician)
The Olympics - “The Bounce” ...great song ..haven’t thought of it in years... thanks...’D;
how about “MUSIC TO WATCH GIRLS BY”
Catch the soaring part about 2:30- this is what made Andy great and set him apart from other singers.
A Time For Us (Romeo & Juliet)
It is very good, but I think it’s thanks to the arrangement. Somebody else could’ve made this record, I think.
Doc Pomus and Mort Shuman wrote it.That’s why.
Love story - Andy Williams with lyrics
The instrumental version by Bob Crewe was a hit in 1967 and got a lot of airplay on KWIZ at 1480 kcs out of Santa Ana, Calif., my favorite radio station at the time, but I never heard the Andy Williams version until you posted it today.
My all-time favorite Andy Williams song is actually a Christmas song, “Oh, Holy Night.” The music is simple, his voice is AMAZING, especially when he hits the high note.
His most famous Christmas song is probably “It’s the Most Wonderful Time of the Year”, which is great too, but he really scores with “Oh, Holy Night.”
A good 1980 cover of this song from The English Beat;
That is, indeed, a fine rendition. You can listen to it here
However, I prefer to hear the song in the original French, a celebration of Christ's arrival to save humanity, that is superior to the stodgy English translation. Here are a couple of good recordings of the original version, known as "Minuit, Chrétiens" (Christians, it's midnight) by Richard Verreau and Roberto Alagna.
All the songs on this thread are really good, and bring back good memories
‘’A good 1980 cover of this song from The English Beat;’’...thanks i’d not heard of this....good one...
