A Great Song that few have Heard


Recommended Posts

I stumbled across this song when looking for a version of "Tonight" from West Side Story. It's from 1974 but OMG - what a great tune and is now one of my alltime favorites. It remained mostly hidden because it was recorded by studio session musicians and never had a "real" band to duplicate the sound. The studio singer who did all the backgroun vocals was Paul Da Vinci - whose voice covered an incredible three and a half octaves. The group in the video are lip-syncing as you can tell by the disinterested "crowd". Music was a lot of fun back in 1974. Put some headphones or earplugs on and treat yourself to Tonight - by the Rubettes.

This is a great song few have heard. It's called When the Rain Came Down. If you know music right away you'll think it's Kate Bush and Annie Lennox collaborating, and you'll be wrong. It is in fact a woman from New York state who goes by the name of Happy Rhodes. As a child she greatly admired both Kate and Annie so she taught herself to sing just like both of them, extremely talented she is.
