The song Proud Mary was written by John Fogerty. It was first recorded by Credence Clearwater Revival (John Fogerty’s band) in 1969, and then again in 1970 by Ike and Tina Turner. It has since become a signature song for Tina Turner. Both versions of the song vary in style and energy, both versions have become well-loved classics.

In this clip, they are performing a well-loved, Ray Charles classic:  What’d I Say

About the song:

What’d I Say

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

Not to be confused with What I’d Say or What I Say.

“What’d I Say”

Genre Soul, blues, rock and roll

Writer(s) Ray Charles

“What’d I Say” (or “What I Say”) is a song by American rhythm and blues (R&B) musician Ray Charles, released in 1959 as a single divided into two parts. It was improvised one evening late in 1958 when Charles, his orchestra, and backup singers had played their entire set list at a show and still had time left; the response from many audiences was so enthusiastic that Charles announced to his producer that he was going to record it.

After his run of R&B hits, this song finally broke Charles into mainstream pop music and itself sparked a new sub-genre of R&B titled soul, finally putting together all the elements that Charles had been creating since he recorded “I Got a Woman” in 1954. The gospel influences combined with the sexual innuendo in the song made it not only widely popular but very controversial to both white and black audiences. It earned Ray Charles his first gold record and has been one of the most influential songs in R&B and rock and roll history. For the rest of his career, Charles closed every concert with the song. It was added to the National Recording Registry in 2002 and ranked at number 10 in Rolling Stone’s “The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time”.

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia

“Speak Softly Love (Love Theme from The Godfather)”

from the album The Godfather (soundtrack)

Released April 1972

Writer(s) Larry Kusik, Nino Rota

The famous theme, composed by Larry Kusic and Nino Rota.

“Speak Softly Love (Love Theme from The Godfather)” is a song written for The Godfather (1972), the first film in The Godfather trilogy. While its instrumental version is simply known as “The Godfather Love Theme”, “Speak Softly Love” is the vocal version. The words are by Larry Kusik but the music itself is by Nino Rota. The signature musical theme that opens the piece closely models a theme that appears early in “Preludio – Povero Ernesto!” in the opera Don Pasquale by Gaetano Donizetti (1797-1848). A similar melody also appears in the Overture to “La Forza del Destino” by Giuseppe Verdi (1813-1901). There are also different sets of lyrics for the song in Italian (“Parla Più Piano”), French (“Parle Plus Bas”) and also in Sicilian (“Brucia La Terra”). The Sicilian version is sung by Anthony Corleone (Franc D’Ambrosio) in The Godfather Part III.

Rota had used a more comedic version of the song for the 1958 film Fortunella. When this was discovered, Rota’s score for The Godfather was disqualified from consideration at the 1973 Academy Awards; it had been nominated for Best Original Score.  However, Rota’s score for The Godfather Part II won the 1974 Academy Award for Best Score, despite containing the same piece.

Call Me Maybe
From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
“Call Me Maybe”

Writer(s) Carly Rae Jepsen, Josh Ramsay, Tavish Crowe

“Call Me Maybe” is a song recorded by Canadian singer-songwriter Carly Rae Jepsen for her EP Curiosity (2012) and appearing on her international debut album, Kiss. The song was written by Jepsen and Tavish Crowe as a folk song, but its genre was modified to pop following the production by Josh Ramsay. “Call Me Maybe” is an upbeat teen pop track that draws influences from dance-pop and disco. Lyrically, the track alludes to the inconvenience that a love at first sight brings to a girl who hopes for a call back from a crush.
