Music - Geri Halliwell, Perhaps Perhaps Perhaps



Once again I post with a Doris Day cover. Once again, the cover is much better than the original. I keep this up and no one will believe me when I say how much I adore her. Poor Doris.


But really, the reason I post these is because they're excellent. These songs have to be to be better than Doris's versions.

I'm inclined to think Miss Former Ginger Spice does good work anyway, but her version of Doris Day's "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" (from her 1963 album Latin For Lovers), is part bubbly Doris homage & part ABBA homage, with a little bit of disco thrown in.


Geri's 2000 CD single "Bag It Up" includes "Perhaps, Perhaps, Perhaps" and a cover of Nancy Sinatra's "These Boots Are Made For Walkin'." The latter is, of course, not quite up to Nancy's, (but then, I consider that one of nature's perfect pop songs) but millions of miles better than that damn Jessica Simpson's. Get your hands on this CD single if you can.

    *gasp* Expired link! Must have! Take pity!

    Disclaimer:

    Music is posted for a short time, and while I use it in part to (hopefully, though not always) go along with the theme of the photo, I also post it in hopes someone will give it a try and fall in love with it as I have. Perhaps they will then seek out more by the artist and buy more cds. That's how it works with me, anyway. If you like it, pick it up at the store; support the artists you love.
