More Covers Melinda Sings!
« on: October 28, 2008, 11:28:35 pm »
Ok, now from the review we know that Melinda sings Doris Day's "I'll Never Stop Loving You."  Gem posted her favorite of Doris in the other thread.

I've found the following:

We Will Find a Way by Brenda Russell (& Oleta Adams in this YouTube) 

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9tPiUckBSM" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Z9tPiUckBSM</a>

  (You don't necessarily want to watch the video, unless you have an eating disorder.)

Wonder Why by Vic Damone 

<a href="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frW_tRQrvgQ" target="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=frW_tRQrvgQ</a>

I haven't been able to find Fundamental Things or I Will Be (There are versions of I Will Be by Leona Lewis & Avril Lavigne, but those seem too recent??)

Alan, I'm counting on you to convert these to video.  Thanks!  Huzzah!

Leona Lewis - I will be.  I could imagine this being a song that Melinda would sing

That is absolutely beautiful Sue.  I can hear Melinda singing that.  Oleta Adams and Brenda Russell are favorites of mine.  It's nice that they're singing together especially since Oleta really hit it big when she recorded Get Here, a song Brenda wrote and recorded years earlier.

Just saw Raphael Saadiq on TV tonight.  Seems his throwback CD is getting a lotta play among music critics.  Check out the single, it's Motown all the way.

Thanks for the help, Alan, and for the Leona Lewis video!   Huzzah! Huzzah!  I hadn't even noticed the YouTube button (I do have the excuse that I've been sick for 2 days.  Crying)

Indy, I agree.  Raphael Saadiq is all the way Soul!

So, it would appear that the only one we haven't found is Fundamental Things.    Help sign, anyone??

It's going to be a great CD!!  Rose Rose   banana dance banana dance

I found "The Fundamental Things" by Bonne Raitt on Zune- it is probably on itunes, too. I can hear Melinda singing it now.  Huzzah!

Thanks, Alan!  Huzzah!
