Oh, and A, Touch the Hem of His Garment is by the Soul Stirrers. It's not a solo Sam Cooke track.


People wouldn't be as inclined to vote for that list if they didn't know it was Sam Cooke! :twisted:


And, to be fair, it's the first track on this compilation:

which alludes to the fact that Sam wrote the song on the way to the recording session with the Soul Stirrers (he was the lead singer and chief composer) with the help of the Bible for the lyrics.


I'm aware of the fact that Cooke composed the song. Well, by that logic, if for some reason I decide to put "Something" on my next BCB Cup list, I'll make sure to credit it to George Harrison, since he wrote it and since it's the first track on this compilation:

Yes, but you'd be silly to credit it to george isnstead of The Beatles because:

1) Everyone knows it's a Beatles song, and
b) There's more votes in The Beatles than George solo (apparently).

A is great but it's hard for me to vote against any list that has the marvelous "blowin' free" on it. i've considered it (and other songs of argus) for my own list.

B it is.

But the Mountain track is the excellent theme from Weekend World!

:cry:


Exactly. It brings back all sorts of depressing childhood memories. The only way they could have depressed me more is by choosing the theme tune from "World At War".


ah the miserable ennui of sunday afternoons in 70's britain.

A is for "alright".

I'll admit to depth of knowledge for material on both lists, and an inability to change that at the moment.
But if I have time for a Beatles tune, Tomorrow Never Knows is way up there of the ones I can still enjoy.
