We are doing a jazz fake-disk for Band-in-a-Box, based on tunes in the Real Book series, and we found this gem.

Aquarius - Benny Goodman

We're still doing that jazz disk for Band-in-a-Box, and there are a number of pop songs that have been done by jazz artists, like the one in the above post.

So we stumbled on:

Billie Jean - Ben Sharkey

Nice  vocals and arrangement, though I think the piano solo is a little weak.16 bars would have been enough for me. YMMV

The Air That I Breathe by Albert Hammond. It's the original and I've always thought it was the best version out there. I always loved Phil Everly's version too. I like them both equally actually. Never cared for The Hollies version.

 

Sorry if this has been posted before. This thread is too huge to check. Hah.

I was digging around in the early roots of rock n roll for a Band-in-a-Box project and I came across this cut by The Clovers. Personally I think The Clovers should get more recognition as pioneers of rock and roll...

They did this and so many rock standards first.

The early Beach Boys were steeped in the doo wop tradition. Here is an example:

And my all-time favorite doo wop song (although I haven't heard them all)

In all this time (that is, since the '60s), I never thought of how the amazing Beach Boys vocal sound grew out of doo-wop, but now that you mention it, it makes sense.  I had a Beach Boys listening binge within the past year (lots of behind-the-scenes documentary videos among other), but the next time I will be listening with new ears. 🙂

A game I play when watching old performances is identifying all the now-vintage instruments in use. Here we have the unique Yamaha CP-80 , an electric piano that had real piano strings inside, and an Oberheim OB-X - the rarely-seen 8-voice, split keyboard version that would have been the latest in cutting-edge tech in 1982.

You could be fooled to think it is Jimi Hendrix playing. (On an off day).
