Nobody Does It Better
With this album, producer Benedikt Brydern and David have taken on the unforgettable ballads of the 60’s and 70’s. These passionate songs of love and heartbreak will have you dancing in the kitchen and loving the one you’re with.
1 “Wanna Make It With You” – I have always loved this groovy little tune. Simply put, its got a great beat.
2 “Killing Me Softly” – Luis Villegas’s exciting flamenco guitar highlights the drama of this haunting melody. That’s me on flugelhorn. I will never forget Roberta Flack’s original version.
3 “Something (In The Way She Moves)” – George Harrison, the quiet Beatle, wrote and sang this dreamy favorite in 1970.
4 “Still” – No one could sing their aching heart out quite like Lionel Ritchie. I’ve tried to match his style with my violin.
5 “This Guy’s In Love” – As founder of A&M Records, Herb Albert was a true popular music innovator. He chose this Burt Bacharach/Hal David song to present himself as a vocalist.
6 “How Can You Mend A Broken Heart” – Originally this song was offered to Andy Williams(!). It eventually became the Bee Gee’s first number one hit on Billboard’s Top 100.
7 “For Once In My Life” – no song I know of reflects the yearning of love as this one does.
8 “Let’s Stay Together” – A number one hit by Al green in 1972. In the 1980’s, Tina Turner covered it on her Private Dancer album.
9 “Arthur’s Theme (The Best That You Can Do)” – Christopher Cross recorded this for the 1980 film “Arthur” starring Dudley Moore and Lisa Minnelli.
10 “Nobody Does It Better” – Carole Bayer Sager and Marvin Hamlisch penned this song for the James Bond film “The Spy Who Loved Me” in 1977. Carly Simon made it a classic.
