As Time Goes By (Herman Hupfeld) 5:29 03. My Melancholy Baby (n) 12:20 04. I'm a Fool to Want You (Wolf/Herron) 19:20 0.
On this lazy, nearly shameless album (two CDs that don't even make it to 70 minutes combined), Neil Diamond visits movie songs past ("As Time Goes By") and present ("My Heart Will Go On") with stops along the way for takes on almost anything you would anticipate an album and artist like this would cover ("Unchained Melody"? There. Can You Feel the Love Tonight"? Ditto. Moon River"? Yep, it's there.
Instead, As Time Goes By is his first classicist album, containing non-ironic, neo-traditionalist arrangements of songs associated with the '30s. That doesn't mean it's a lavish affair, dripping with lush orchestras - it's considerably more intimate than that. Even when strings surface, they're understated, part of a small live combo that supports Ferry throughout the record.
Top 50 Love Songs of All Time. 3/2/2016 by Fred Bronson. Lulu hated the songs the producers of the film "To Sir With Love" were considering for the soundtrack. She asked her friend Mark London to write a title song she could sing. He composed the music in five minutes and the next day Don Black wrote the lyrics. Producer Jon Peters and director Franco Zeffirelli asked Lionel Richie to compose an instrumental along the lines of the theme from "Love Story" for their movie starring Brooke Shields.
Not only that, many songs written for films have stood on their own, with the popularity of some eclipsing the movies that inspired them. With the 86th Academy Awards approaching, here's a look back at the 50 biggest Hot 100 hits that arose from being featured on the silver screen. The Brooke Shields-led movie "Endless Love" led to what Billboard previously revealed was the biggest duet hit of all time, Diana Ross and Lionel Richie's inspired pairing on the title track. It was also the biggest hit of each of the legendary singer's careers, spending 27 weeks on the chart, nine of them at no. 1. "You Light Up My Life" - Debby Boone Hot 100 Peak Position: 1 (10 weeks), Peak Date: 10/15/1977
Best Country Love Songs. Wind Beneath My Wings" by Gary Morris. Bette Midler's version is featured in the tearjerker movie Beaches. However, Morris released this heart wrenching country version in 1983 as part of his Why Lady Why album, which rose to number four on the charts. I Keep on Lovin' You" by Reba McEntire. This 1971 classic from the album Sticky Fingers is full of devotion and longing, making it one of the fiercest declarations of love in rock history. Bitter Sweet Symphony" by The Verve. An orchestral rock n' roll masterpiece from the 1992 album Urban Hymns. Loving your significant other through thick and thin is the moral of this duet. Fix You" by Coldplay.
In other words, a totally essentially time capsule. Nonetheless, there are plenty other goodies to sink your teeth into on this album, which may be the most bizarre hodgepodge of musicians assembled for what’s ostensibly an alty ’80s film. And as the film goes on, the Indian music becomes less strange and more essential to their relationship. Like the movie itself, the soundtrack to Midnight Cowboy is an ambitious affair with a collection of songs that joins together country folk instrumentals and an array of rock styles, from the radio friendly rock sound (including a cover of a great early Warren Zevon song) to more expansive psych explorations, all of which helps explore the complicated psyche of its story.
I love these songs so much that I’d love to be able to bring them and the stories around them to people via the medium of TV, he says, adding that he’ll be touring the album soon. As Time Goes By features Alfie singing with guest artists including actress Kara Tointon, and Frasier star Kelsey Grammer, who joins him on the Cab Calloway number Minnie The Moocher. But fans of the award-winning, million-selling duo of Michael Ball and Alfie Boe, whose two Together albums have seen them become a showbusiness fixture, need not worry
Since we're including love songs about devotion and pining (but trying to avoid wholesale break-up ballads), "We Belong Together" is the perfect place to start. Mariah Carey's hit single from "The Emancipation of Mimi" remains is a classic modern love song with a fantastic pop diva music video to match. Listen to "We Belong Together" here. You probably don't think much about "Vision Quest," the movie for which this song was made, but "Crazy for You" is one of Madonna's best love songs. It also earned Madonna her first of many Grammy Award nominations. Listen to "Crazy For You" here. It would be a list of love songs without a serious dose of '80s melodrama, and "Total Eclipse of the Heart" is everything we could want in a glam rock ballad that fits into our "pining but still a love song" category. Listen to "Total Eclipse of the Heart" here.
