Old School Fridays - Song With The Word Heart In The Title



Well it's Friday once more. I had a really hard time with this theme for some reason; however I came up with the perfect song. Anyone Who Had A Heart, originally performed by Dionne Warwick (unfortunately I could not find the original) and two covers of the song, one by Luther Vandross and the other by Dusty Springfield. I found Ms. Warwick performing the song (sort of) with Cliff Richards dubbed in.

This meme was developed by Marvalus View and Ms. Grapevine. The rules are simple:

1. Anyone can participate; any music genre
2. Old School is defined as music created before 1999
3. No offensive words allowed, please use edited radio version
4. Post a video of your favorite Old School song to take us back down memory lane
5. Add your name to the meme list so that others can check you out
6. Have fun & don't forget to leave comments for other participants

I got a last minute add!

I think they snatched your video but I'm assuming it was Anyone Who Had A Heart. Great choice.

And I did post Michel'le. You just overlooked it. But I'm moving it up though.

Thanks for stopping by and Happy OSF!

I don't understand what happened Vivrant, my songs are playing fine, the video player is intact.

I never heard the Dionne version. I thought that Luther was the only one or the first one.

Luther is always a good choice.

Have a good weekend.

Great choices PJazzy! Everyone must have gotten up early this week or else I am late. I love the Luther, the Dionne, AND the Dusty S. choices. Happy OSF>

Pjazzy - good one! I really do remember both the Dionne and Dusty versions and I think Dusty was my fav. I never knew Luther Vandross did a version!

I went with nostalgia, as usual, found 3 but I think the last one might surprise you.

Happy OSF

One of my favorites by Luther & Dionne! They both brought something different to it!

I'm glad I found your blog. I love Anyone Who Had a Heart by Dionee and Luther. I have both of those songs on CD by each singer.

My favorite Dusty Springfield song is "I only wanna be with you" Remember that?

I'd love to chat with you since we have some things in common plus I'd like to share something with you.

The funny thing is...I can't listen to anyone else, whether they have sang the song before or after, sing a song once Luther sings it...it just doesn't sound right to me...

We share this choice this week...great minds!

Wow, haven't heard the Dazz Band in a hot minute. Thanks for digging that out!

Regina said...

I am glad you decided to add your second selection. I don't think I ever heard that before. I like it!
