The Letter...

This is a classic song by The Box Tops...

But it was also covered by Joe Cocker, who jazzed it up with a sexier, more primal style...

Although I like both versions of this song, it never occurred to me to try to sing it until today, when I gave it a whirl on SingSnap...

I was trying to sound a little horny when I did this...  I don't know if I succeeded, but it was fun trying, except for the chipmunk voiced backup singers at the end.  Yikes!

I was born after this song was a hit, so it's good to sing something older than I am...


  1. Off topic here but I think you'll find it interesting. Sinead O'Connor's open letter to Miley Cyrus after she claimed her 'Wrecking Ball' video was inspired by O'Connor's 'Nothing Compares to You'.

    1. Good for Sinead for writing that letter. I don't always agree with the things she says and does, but I think she was right this time. I'm not necessary a Miley fan, but I do think she has talent and Sinead gave her the straight dope.

    2. Now a very public spat. http://showbizgeek.com/mileys-rude-response-to-sinead/ Funny, your post was originally about a song called 'The Letter.'

    3. Jeez... between Miley and Bieber, I might as well quit reading the Internet.
