    Heartbreaker (1982)
    Written for Dionne Warwick by the Bee Gees



    The Bee Gees' own version was recorded in 1994, but not released until 2001 on the album Their Greatest Hits: The Record.

    I like this Nightwish cover of Pink Floyd’s “High Hopes”, more hauntingly memorable to me.

    I've Grown Accustomed to Her Face (1956)
    Written for, and first recorded by, Rex Harrison for My Fair Lady

    Over 100 singers/groups/orchestras have covered this song. Not hard to beat the original unless I've never heard the best recording by Harrison. Not much to distinguish between the vocal covers. This one is a little different.

    James Taylor has a gift of turning any song into a beautiful story.

    Daryl Hall. :D I have never heard of that kid singing the lead, but he is excellent. Not the Four Tops, though!!

    ETA--back in the day, I thought their group was "Haulin' Oats." :D:Do_O

    Beth, I have to disagree on this one, this is a romantic song to me and not well served with multiple artists.Plus the beat, melody was changed by them.
    I liked the first one better. Listen to it again.
