There are innumerous song titles we'd all like Connie to have recorded.
I heard her sing the Ray Charles hit "You Don't Know Me" live in
Orlando in 2010, it brought tears to my eyes. Certainly would love
to have had a recording of that by Our Connie.
I would have loved to have heard Connie perform Ray Charles "You Don't Know Me" live.
There is nothing quite like Connie performing "LIVE" it always gives me such a high.
A song I would have liked Connie to have recorded and which she performed in concert during the last few years is her tribute to Frank Sinatra "I'll Be Seeing You".
Years ago, I forwarded a tape to someone working with Connie with the song Don't Say You Don't Remember originally done in the early 70's by Beverly Bremers......it would be perfect for Connie.
The lyric starts "we wrote on the corner of the table/ this is the only one that will last" and goes thru a journey of lovers meeting again years later. Although I do not like the arrangement on Connie's "She'll Have To Go" I always though a tribute to Jim Reeves would be great. I love her version of "Four Walls"
and in the past asked if this was a edit omitting the verse "Sometimes I ask why I'm waiting"....a Hank Williams tribute would be nice too....not to mention the great songs of Kris Kristofferson (For The Good Times, Nobody Wins, I've Got To Have You, and one that I saw Connie do live at Trump Marina in the early 90's Help Me Make it Thru The Night.....I am hoping for a LIVE release thru Concetta with a extended less rushed hits medley....I loved the Yesterday Once More version from the Dick Clark appearance. The later Trump Castle CD omitted My Happiness & Together completely, and it would be nice to have Carolina Moon, Many Tears Ago, My Heart Has a Mind and the others as part of the medley. I believe
going back to the first time I saw Connie live at Resorts AC '85 Who's Sorry Now? was performed complete at the end of the first segment of the set, and the hits medley started with Stupid Cupid. There was also a great performance of Memory from Cats...
Once Before I Go, Yesterday When I Was Young, Mame, Crazy Arms, It Makes No Difference Now, Kiss of Fire (in English) It Was A Good Time.....all great songs I'd love to hear Connie sing....Thank you!
i agree with "walk away' connie would do it wonderfully.i would love to have heard her sing "there goes my heart" 'amore scusami" "from here to eternity" also "till"
and too many more to think of at this time!
I agree with you guys, Joe & John I love the song "Walk Away" Did you know Nancy Wilson
first sang this song, I have her vinyl album 'Easy' with "Walk Away" from 1968
If you Google-Nancy Wilson "Walk Away" there is a "YouTube" with the album "Easy" and the song
"Walk Away" you can listen to.
You know the new Italian guys "IL Volo" Connie should get together with them and release
songs with them, Italian and English songs A complete CD.
AT LAST was already considered a standard by the time Etta got around to it. Like Twilight Time & Smoke Gets In Your Eyes by the Platters and Who's Sorry Now?, My Happiness and others by Connie, it had been recorded often....these guys just did the "definite" versions and had the biggest more recent versions that we all are more familiar with.
I didn't know Brenda Lee had a version of "Walk Away" I was surprised to read when I Googled
Nancy Wilson Walk Away that Nancy's version has never been recorded on a CD it is only on the
vinyl record album 'Easy' ..This is even more of a good reason why Connie should record Walk Away
and have it on CD.. I sent Connie an Email and asked her to read our discussions here on the board,
and that we are hoping to hear Connie record this song.
