Do you, like me, really dislike the very end of Joe Cocker's "You Are So Beautiful to Me" song?





"You are so beautiful  .  .  .  to  me eee  eh  ee  ee . . ."

(I know, I know -- he's done something right. The song is a classic.)

    What most people don't know is that he was supposed to sing the last few notes of that song in his normal voice.  However, at that very moment a mouse ran across the floor in front of him.

    Whether that is true or not (of course, it's true!), you just made me like that part of the song.  :)   :)

    No, I like it well enough. Part of his uniqueness.

    You'rwe rgiht. I've beeni na pisspoor mood for weeks.

    My question, that means my typos can stay. ;)   



    I admit that song's ending does get to me at times, other times ,no. Like I said, too, I do realize the song is classic and Cocker is great. ((Or maybe it's just his name I find appealing. Ha! Sorry about that.)



    Thanks for answering, SavvyAnsley.

    That song that goes I know it's late, I know your lonely tune is the best song he's done. This post was edited by CosmicWunderkind at February 18, 2021 6:15 PM MST

    I don't know of a Joe Cocker like that but your description reminds me of Bob Seger's "We've Got Tonight."
    And once I listen now to Seger,  Joe and Bob sort of sound similar to me. :)

    This one yes Welby. Very fine accomplishment this. By Bob Seger. Joe Cockers a Little Help From My Friends song then. Painful music some is.
    I like. I'll add this song anyways sung solo by Billy Joel

    An Innocent Man" is a simple soulful song about the strength and understanding that is needed for a loving relationship particularly with someone who has been hurt or betrayed in a previous relationship.

    I like both of the songs you've shared here, thanks. I don't think I'm too familiar with that Joel one. 
    Yeah, bed sometimes really sounds good. I'm heading there somewhat soon.

    I think we both might be posting here at the same time -- I keep seeing more additions to your post. :)
    Cool.

    I also really like Joel's "Allentown."

    Yeah, I think I might be heading off for the night but see you around! Hang in there, be well!
    :)

    Look Welby. Skip the bed and what I said. If it ain't in me to be ladies man', I guess I'm not ever going to be a ladies man.
    Here's the other songs. Enjoy! This post was edited by CosmicWunderkind at February 19, 2021 5:57 PM MST

    I listened to the first 26 seconds of "Easy to Slip" -- I like it immediately. I don't think I've heard it before. I want to enjoy it but  -- I'm tired and I want to listen when I'm alert. I will like the rest of the song, too, I bet. I hope to come back and listen.
    I listened just now to first 16 seconds of Dr Hook song, too -- don't think I know this one, either, but I like it, too. 

    But to quote a movie I did not particularly enjoy -- "I'll be back."

    ;)

    ( And I saw that question a while ago that you posted with a picture of the star of that movie.)
