You know that feature gossip magazines do where they ask you to vote on which celebrity wore a particular outfit best? Yes. OK, this is just like that, except sub performer for celebrity and song for outfit. Simple.
My song infatuation this month is Someday Soon. Written by Ian & Sylvia; made famous by Judy Collins. It’s been a charting single for three different artists in three separate decades.
Here’s the folky Collins version, circa 1969.
(The album version’s not available on YouTube, so to keep the playing field even, I’m presenting live versions of all three of these.)
Next, we have Crystal Gayle’s 1978 country-pop cover.
Crystal Gayle is Loretta Lynn’s (much) younger sister, and has the longest hair of quite possibly any famous person from the 20th century.
Finally, 1991 brings us Suzy Boggus’s neo-traditionalist-country cut.
You can just say which one you like best, or you can rank them best to worst.
