Thread: please identify tune...

    Default please identify tune...

    hello

    are you able to name the title of this older (twenty-or-so years ago?) country/western piece--possibly considered 'crossover' in the music industry:

    it was a slow-to-moderate tempo, with a female vocalist, almost 'spoken' lyrics...

    thank you

    I can't open that page.

    Is it this?

    The second one works, I don't recognize the tune.

    it was a bit unusual...instead of a 'guitar and fiddle' band, there was a 'keyboard/synthesizer' arrangement to it--with that single-note theme returned to throughout the piece (heard in the beginning of the soundcloud example)...

    possibly a 'Texas' honky-tonk feel to it, too--a Tanya Tucker-style singing (lower female register), but almost 'spoken' lyrics...a somewhat 'brooding' effect...

    thanks again for listening...

    ps: someone here seems to recall it, from probably the mid-eighties--no title/artist yet, though...

    The first few lines of the tune you play remind me somewhat of an old song I've always liked. It's not a female artist and not from the mid-eighties, but it's all I could come up with. It reminds me of a Buddy Holly song from the late '50s.

    Linda Ronstadt re did it sometime in the seventies I think... Here's that link:https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qOmYxMz5OIM

    The first one I agree with "Flatrock", on. "It doesn't matter anymore"
    The second is Vivaldi concerto in D
    Does that help?

    I also thought it sounded like "It doesn't matter any more." Came up with it independently, but couldn't pull the title until I saw Flatrock's Youtube. Great Song.

    That made me look up cover versions. This one meets some of your criteria: keyboards, low pitched female singer, piano and some organ, got a honky-tonky vibe before it turned more gospel once the organ kicks in. Singer wasn't born until 1982, so that part doesn't match:

    There are also Eva Cassidy and Wanda Jackson versions, but those sound quite different. I was not familiar with any of these.

    sincere thanks to one and all for helping in this musical pursuit...and, you're correct in that there is something of a resemblance to the Holly piece--but, that isn't the tune sought here.

    the first sixteen-or-so seconds of the soundcloud example is the keyboard/synthesizer single-note motif returned to throughout the piece--no vocals during that time...

    again, the song in mind is a sparse, brooding affair--a 'minimalist' effort, which is often appealing.


    much obliged for your helpful suggestions...
