Thread Name: Pop songs done in the 'folk style'
Subject: RE: Pop songs done in the 'folk style'
Bobby Vee under his real name of Robert Thomas Velline recorded a remake of Take Good Care of My Baby in a "sensitive singer songwriter"
style in 1972, slowly the tempo considerably. Apart from throwing in a "Take good care of my lady" and omitting the verse "My tears are falling" the song itself has not been altered and it sounds pretty good - makes you wonder why Vee was so perky in the original.
