Take Me Home, Country Roads

Take Me Home, Counrty Roads: my favorite-song-that-I-cannot-sing.  When I try, the dogs aroo, the cockatoo screeches.  Which is fun for them, less fun for the primates in the house.

Olivia Newton-John.  Awesome version.  Too bad it's inflicted with a 70's era breathy white people chorus.  What were you people thinking?

Toots & The Maytals.  Yes, reggae. Shut up, it works.

Israel Kamakawiwo'ole.  Hawaiian. Big guy, big voice.

Hermes House Band.  The set, the costumes ...  forget that: they rock the song, the lead singer fills out that dress real well. Rowr.

From Whisper Of The Heart - English.   There is, as Mr. Fungus noted, a killer Renaissance-y riff at the end that is just not long enough.

From Whisper Of the Heart - Japanese.   I'm not any kind of a sub snob, but this one works best: the girl is good, but not too good, it really sounds like an impromptu jam in a workshop.
