I first heard The Chi Lites' "Have You Seen Her" after a brief hopeless fling in the early '70s:

Wow, those harmonies in the beginning sure sound like being directly influenced by the "Surfer girl" intro. Beautiful!
And thanks for posting, JK!


And I add these songs:

Jerry Lee Lewis - Would you take another chance on me?

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BcY_ODmTnbw   (check out this live performance as well)



George Jones & Tammy Wynette - I've seen better days

a diseased bunch of mo'fos if there ever was one… their beauty is so awesome that listening to them at their best is like being in some vast dream cathedral decorated with a thousand gleaming American pop culture icons.

- Lester Bangs on The Beach Boys


PRO SHOT BEACH BOYS CONCERTS - LIST


To sum it up, they blew it, they blew it consistently, they continue to blow it, it is tragic and this pathological problem caused The Beach Boys' greatest music to be so underrated by the general public.

Really, if the Band's vocalists are the thing turning you off ....is there any other way you can access these handful of perfect songs by Robbie Robertson?
No. Why access? Thousands good/ better songs.

"The Saddest Songs" by Joyful Joy-Merrys - joyfully sad song (or sadly joyful song? Anyhoo, fits the thread).

This is one of the saddest songs I know. I should add that the lyrics do not apply to me:

"Quiet Night" by Anna Ternheim is real late-night missing-someone music. The wordless bits hit home the hardest:

Yes indeed. It's over--just about the saddest words you can ever expect to hear.

This is one that seriously teared me up the one time I heard it a year or so ago, "Rainbow Connection" from The Muppet Movie:

I never thought of this one as a sad song but more as a joyous anthem. But the words on reflection are so sad.

Kim Weston's "Take Me In Your Arms (Rock Me A Little While)" has long been my favourite Motown song.

Nice archaic song. Zsa Zsa Gabor may be familiar with it as young girl. 3D It ain't sad to these ears but it's got weird bleak back tale. Difficult to believe. https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=IN-vbMeJBHA
