Sunday Songs

A blend of older and newer and older.

I started listening to Neil Diamond's "Love on the Rocks" from the Jazz Singer, drifted to Tony Bennett and then ended up with Lady Gaga and finished with Adelle - which suggests that my music tastes are varied and somewhat less than predictable. So I though that I'd share some Sunday Songs.

Neil Leslie Diamond (born January 24, 1941) is an American singer-songwriter with a career spanning over five decades from the 1960s until the present. As of 2001, Diamond had sold over 115 million records worldwide including 48 million in the USA alone. He is considered to be the third most successful artist on the Billboard chart behind Barbara Streisand and Elton John.

Diamond was inducted into the Songwriters Hall of Fame in 1984 and into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame in 2011.

Stefani Joanne Angelina Germanotta (born March 28, 1986), known by her stage name Lady Gaga, is an American singer and songwriter. Lady Gaga came to prominence as a recording artist following the release of her debut album The Fame (2008), which was a critical and commercial success that topped charts around the world and included the international number-one singles "Just Dance" and "Poker Face". Lady Gaga is recognized for her flamboyant, diverse and outré contributions to the music industry through her fashion, performances and music videos. She has sold an estimated 23 million albums and 64 million singles worldwide, making her one of the best selling music artists of all time.

Anthony Dominick Benedetto, better known as Tony Bennett (born August 3, 1926), is an Italian-American singer. Bennett is also a serious and accomplished painter, having created works—under the name Anthony Benedetto—that are on permanent public display in several institutions. He is the founder of the Frank Sinatra School of the Arts in New York City. He has sold over 50 million records worldwide.

Re: Neil D. - The lads from Lenard Skynard didn't much care for him. Sweet Home Alabama. Yeah!

Or was it Neil Young?

LL said...

I think that it was Neil Young, who defected to Crosby, Sills, Nash and Young.

WoFat said...

Sigh. Age and memory.

Lady Gaga has a great voice - when it isn't masked or overshadowed by her being a freak :)

Euripides said...

Well. We certainly don't have the same music play list. But that's OK, I'll still respect you in the morning.

LL said...

Euripides - My play list is very broad in terms of my taste. I actually like Lady Gaga --

and I'm with Azra, she's got a great voice when she isn't draped in meat or trying to shock.
