I really love this song
Thanks Baby. I learned something yesterday. i never knew Bobby Hebb wrote this or the backstory. I couldn't find a photo of his brother but I looked. Take care. ttys.
Keep ur head up Mamas. I know its not easy sometimes but, I can tell that your loved ones look to you for that strength. Im gonna listen to Jose's version of this song later. I heard Ella Fitzgerald's version of it which was a great cover. I mean the list goes on and on and on. It amazes me going down the list.
Indeed. I was working on a post for FB on Jose Feliciano and his 1968 album that I had and played alot in 1968. To show how far-reaching Sunny is/was, I had forgotten he had done a cover of it too. kismet I guess. Thanks for your kind words regarding Dena too. Besides Daddy dying, that's the most heart wrenching thing I've ever gone through.
Im sorry for your loss Mama Edie. I dont know what it feels like to lose someone that close yet. Finding the strength to move forward without that person is something that only a few can do. I dont think im built for that. I believe that for Bobby, writing this song and performing it for the masses is where his strength came from. I read that this song is in the top 100 greatest songs of the century and has been remade over 100 times since 1965. Marvin Gaye and Stevie Wonder are among the many great artist to cover this song. The mark that Bobby left on the music industry with this song is such an inspiration and uplifts my spirit.
Hey Baby! I appreciate the backstory too. I was wondering. Tremendous strength, indeed! I'm happy to know you didn't lose your brother... I guess I read it wrong. Sorry. Now I need to know more about Bobby though. The words hit home for me as well...my baby sister died around this time last year. I don't think too hard or I'll cry. Good seeing you honey.
Hey Mama Edie! I really love this song. The backstory behind the song really hit home because I almost lost my brother. Bobby's brother was murdered back in 1965 I believe. This is what inspired him to write this song. Im just like How do you not break down in tears every time you sing this song? What kind of strength does it take to get on stage and perform this, after such tragedy? Its really mindblowing.
Nice... and I'm sorry for your loss dear.
