Listening to…

Posted by Mummy Dearest on Jan-13-2004

Who else ?.

Now, why would anyone listen to The Animals ?

  1. Karan Said,

    and why not? : )

  2. sue Said,

    Because- while I don’t – as usual- know what to do with his voice ( which is why I am only on the second level of fan-hood), he sings the song as it was meant to be : a traditional song sung by a woman.

    ‘Tell my baby sister, not to do what I have done…’

    I shall have to listen to The Animals again, see what they did with this ‘chick ‘song…

  3. Karan Said,

    Yes, The Animals…an interesting example of the 60s…I always thought the music was better than the lyrics…that’s for sure.

  4. Karen Said,

    Because it’s one of those songs that makes you listen to it.

  5. sue Said,

    Karen, I have a weakness for American folk music, acoustic guitars and slide guitars ( not in this piece). I find this version so real that I can’t even quip about it.

    I love it.

    There is nothing more depressing, unless I can finally find someone who has recorded that tune about the cowboy who is dying in Laredo, you know, the one who is shot in the breast and knows he must die. And then goes on to plan his funeral…

    And the first LP I ever had was the Animals one, with their version !

    Happy for you in all ways- including stats-
