As suggested by Junglijim on the Sam Cooke thread.
What are the AWers favourite recorded tracks of all time. 3 songs only please.
Off the top of my head (& at this minute) mine are;
1. Sonny Till – Tears & Misery.
How is this not a hit?! For me the arrangement & feeling in the voice are just incredible. I recently tracked this down on record & it is just breathtaking.
2. The Rolling Stones – Gimme Shelter
This is timeless. When you hear Merry Clayton hit THAT note & her voice cracks. It sends a shiver down my spine every time
3. Sam Cooke – Bring It On Home To Me
Hard to believe that this was a B-Side. The simplicity of the instrumentation just allows the voice to take centre stage.
