Most people have heard White Rabbit, one of the iconic songs from the '60s, recorded by Jefferson Airplane: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=HWxMj6IQbJc

Here's the original version. It was written by Grace Slick when she was in The Great Society, before she moved to the Airplane. This version is live at the Matrix, with Slick playing the oboe. A very different, middle-eastern sound.

I've often wondered what Charles Lutwidge Dodgson would have made of it all. He would probably have enjoyed that version, as did I, thanks.

Since you liked that, you might also like "Sally Go Round the Roses", also recorded at The Matrix, by Grace Slick and the Great Society

I suspect he would have thought Lewis Carroll was partaking of dubious substances and was off his head ;)

"Surrender," Perpetual Langley (1966)
https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=G1vEb-raKUA

Belfast-born Mary Perpetual Langley was a sort of proto-Amy Winehouse, another nice white girl who could belt out songs with an amazingly soulful voice. (But minus the substance and behavioural issues.) She had good material to work with here, a song from the formidable team of Nick Ashford, Jo Armstead and Valerie Simpson.

The flip side of the single, "Two by Two," was pretty spiffing as well.

I love this song and here is a more recent version by the Icelandic singer Emiliana Torrini.

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=ruIezHP_YvU

and this is a heavier version of hers used to great effect in the film Sucker Punch

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=rpVKSGzgtog

for me this is one of the most powerful uses of a great song with some amazing visuals.

Ooh - nice idea for a bit of a side-track then - 'Great music set to great fight scenes'....

I'll pitch in with the Peaky Blinders gypsy fight with the Lee brothers, set to Blue Veins by The Raconteurs -

https://vimeo.com/101718007 - The action starts at around the 2-minute mark, although it's worth watching the whole clip to set the scene a little...

Peaky Blinders is always packed full of great music, mind.....

Cheers,

Itsallaguess
