Marvelous Music Monday 4Ms Music Hop - No Cover Charge - June 3, 2013


Today on Marvelous Music Monday, the hop's theme is "Cover Tunes" meaning bands/people who redid a song.

The first cover song is "Blue Bayou" sung by Linda Ronstadt.   This was originally recorded by Roy Orbinson in 1963.  It reached number 29 on the US pop charts. Linda Ronstadt's version was released in 1977.  With Linda, it reached number 3 on the Billboard Hot 100, number 2 on the country, and number 3 on the Easy Listening Charts.

The next cover song originally came out in Les Misérables, which originally came out at the Barbican Theatre on 8 October 1985.  Susan Boyle stunned everyone with her performance of "I Dreamed a Dream" on Britain's Got Talent.

  1. Great picks.
    The Susan B. one was blocked but I remember hearing it when she originally sang it. Blows you away!

  2. Susan Boyle's performance still blows me away. Truly incredible! (It was blocked but I watched it online.)

    1. I guess I had to get another version. Interesting how I can see it, and no one else.

  3. Is is so hard to cover a Roy Orbinson song well. He had such a distinctive voice.

  4. great choices i really like these

  5. Good covers I liked both Roy Orbison and Linda Ronstadt's versions :-)

  10. I'm sorry I'm a day late getting my hopping done. Thanks for sharing these songs. I think Linda Ronstadt's Blue Bayou is great. I sing it quite often in my best Linda Ronstadt Susan Boyle is an amazing talent. Have a great week!

  11. Still get moved so much by Susan's version of one of my most favourite songs. she just killed it that night on stage, and on this recording too.
    Blue of those songs I remember my mom listening to, so I often can be found humming it. but had no idea who sang it - originally or by cover.

  12. I have both of those songs on my iPod. Great choices. :)
