The other night dear, as I lay sleeping
I dreamed I held you in my arms
But when I awoke, dear, I was mistaken

I think of that more as American folk, but I guess Old Country might be more accurate.

So, really old. But made relatively new again.

That all our swains commend her?
Holy, fair, and wise is she;
The heaven such grace did lend her,
That she might admirèd be.
If the House lost every hand, they wouldn't deal the game.

Ding! Ding! Correct!!

This is one of those songs that's bigger than its own genre. It gets picked up by many artists and becomes a standard in many genres.

And now, in the category "Superior Cover Versions", name that song...

Other arms reach out to me
Other eyes smile tenderly
Still, in peaceful dreams, I see
The road leads back to you
Have you tried 22 tonight? I said 22.

Imma put a third one in play.


Father, father
We donít need to escalate
You see, war is not the answer
For only love can conquer hate
You know weíve got to find a way
To bring some loviní here today, oh oh oh

Gialmere,

I believe that is

"Georgia"


Back to our ever-popular "One Hit Wonders" category comes this cheery little ditty from the 70's:

Goodbye Papa please pray for me
I was the black sheep of the family

What's Going On by Marvin Gaye


OK, I'll add one:

Some fools rave of happiness, blissfulness, togetherness
Some fools fool themselves I guess
But they're not fooling me

Ding! Ding! Winner!!

First released in 1930, "Georgia on My Mind" was written by Hoagy Carmichael and Stuart Gorrell as a pop jazz foxtrot...



...but will forever be remembered for the 1960 cover version by Georgia native Ray Charles.
