Love the sound … Pacific Northwest hipster central (casting). Major bonus points for the clarinetist.

I dig it… especially the opening transitions. Would be a good song to inhale to… thanks to the Spotify algo for recommending it:
Nice live version of Call Off Your Dogs at 32:38 (I don’t think the embed will skip to there).
Sort of a weird video, but I love the song. Nearly a billion plays on Spotify and a half billion on YouTube so one or two people heard it before I did:
Start the video at 0:54 … thought it was Alan Jackson the first time I heard it … some clever lines, a great sound, I love it. Look at all the idiots in the audience watching the performance through their phones… oughta be a law.
The great Charlie Rich … when singing along, I always change the line to “Because I believe she’d do the same if she were me, and I wouldn’t know where to turn if she were gone.”
Sounds like Tal has been working on her singing (most think of it as “unremarkable”) … I think she’s great.
It’s about time he had a single out (1972) …. sort of a companion song to Bowie’s Space Oddity (1969).
An aged Gladys Knight singing her big hit from ‘73 while sharing the stage and the song with some kids… you can see how great she is by comparison, there’s just no comparison, really. God bless true talent!
Big fan of Morcheeba … check out Skye Edwards’ body language… what a voice.
Pierino at age 67 covering Stevie … a certain Lawrence Welkian feel … not crying in his beer:
I dig this cover of what is probably The Cure’s best song. The bassist’s primal roar made me laugh out loud.
I dig these old farts … that lead guitarist is almost exactly my age … the entire band shares my sartorial and grooming style.
The great Barbara Lewis surrounded by a weirdly unmoved (until cued), mostly white, studio audience:
Young Neil … born in 1941 … attended Surprise Lake Camp … no bigger sex symbol of his day.
Love her sound and the song….
Jewel from February 1999 … terrible quality but I love this song and her imperfect teeth (fixed once she got big):
Greek dad, Jamaican mom … not sure why she changes the lyric to “please love me too,” “say you love me too,” but… wow. (Bacharach always thought that Aretha’s version was rushed … and he was right, as this cover proves.)

The great Tal Wilkenfeld (who normally doesn’t sing) and a crew of percussive hipsters:
I dig it….
