Sunny : summer and music

Thursday 21 June 2012

After a long absence on the net, I decided to come back today in a symbolic manner which is June 21: Day of Summer and festival of music!

When we speak about summer , one of the first thoughts is still the sun, hey we’re not going to miss out, this post will be sunny and music through SUNNY!

The “older” know what I mean with SUNNY, the youngest perhaps know the song but not knowing that this beautiful melody which had been released in 1966.

So we will have fun watching and listening to some interpretations more or less musically good …. of Sunny !

Feel free to let me know of interpretations that are not listed in this post, which has also not pretended to list them all.

We’ll start by the composer of this wonderfull song Bobby Hebb

Then come THEversion of Johnny Rivers!

A vesion soul and dance from the beloved James Brown , the Sex Machine’s man

Another soul version of the beloved Marvin Gaye

Even Stevie Wonder did it :

A surprising version from…the actor Robert Mitchum

A jazzy version ….4’o clock in the morning by Nancy Wilson

For the end ….a japanese version which comes from  a tv reality show….

Some more version from George Benson, Ella Fitzgerald and Boney M, et some more …

Very good summer and Happy music festival
