Tom Jones - Can't Stop Loving You

Sat Aug 13, 2011 2:32 pm

Here's a song i have not heard before by Tom. It's not to be confused with the Ray Charles classic (which Tom also recorded).

I think it's great. What do others think of this ?

I love Tom Jones' voice but I find this song very dull.

Sorry.

Here's Tom Doing Hound Dog

Well thanks :evil: My Friends at least explain what you find "dull" and "not your cup of tea" about the song.

It's...dull. There's nothing catchy about the melody, and the lyrics don't excite me either.
I'll have another listen if you like.

Yeah but what about the sheer power and range of his voice. I think the arrangement of this particular song allows for Tom to demonstrate his incredible distinctive range. Just uploaded Neil Diamond's "Free Man in Paris" do you like Neil Diamond?

Not arguing about Sir Tom's voice, which is great but lacks the variance, subtlety and versatility of Elvis' vocals. It's the song I don't care for.
Yes I do Like Neil Diamond. I also like Don McLean and Jerry Lee Lewis. Why? :|

I think Tom's voice is better shown off here, even though that low note sounds like a belch :?

I have always liked this number. It has very much the same beat as his version of Green Green Grass of Home. It may outstay its welcome slightly at 5 minutes, but other than great stuff.
