The Temptations: I Know I'm Losing You
Kenny Oswald's five can't help but impress with the quality and emotions conveyed in each song beginning with a Motown classic and ending on a high Roy Orbison climax.
First time for the lovely cheesey trumpet of Nino Rosso wringing the emotion out of a trumpet standard.
I Know I'm Losing You: The Temptations
A perfect example of a Motown soul song. Great production, great musicians and emotional lyrics. "Your touch has grown cold."
How Can You Mend A Broken Heart: Al Green
Loosing a loved one is a terrible thing. It does break your heart. "I can think of younger days/when living for my life/Was everything a man could want to do./
I could never see tomorrow/But I was never told about the sorrow."
Il Silenzio: Nino Rosso
Played this lots of times when a youngster...very haunting. I had no idea of what was being said in Italian but it seemed sad. I hummed it when we went to the seaside and I paddled in the water wondering what life had in store for me.
Homeward Bound: Simon and Garfunkel
Rather melancholic, but a beautiful song that sums up boredom and a yearning to go home.
It's Over: Roy Orbison
This is how it feels when you loose your lover, your partner, your friend. The pain, the anguish, the drama...as only Roy Orbison can express. Goose bumps time. Farewell everyone.
