      Thanks, @Alfred! I am working on a steady picking pattern on it… didn’t do as well as I hoped but I’ll keep tackling it. 😉

    Not the end of the world as I know it, coz that is by REM. But this one is so much better

      This rendition was done in the 60’s or 70’s by Herman’s Hermits

        @bobpatt01, that was 1965 just a few years after the original was released, I believe.

      @EricBog, definitely not REMs song… and I agree, this one is better.

    Absolutely beautiful @Marquita . Very nicely picked and your vocals have such a nice range.

    Beautiful song. Did the Carpenters do a version of this? I can almost hear Karen Carpenter in the way you are singing. Well done!

      Yes, they surely did. I do recall hearing Skeeter Davis version 1962 or 63 and fell in love with the song… the Carpenters did a great cover in 1973. I just tried to count the covers and there are over 100… Patty Page, Anne Murray, Twiggy, etc…not just girls either… Pat Boone, The Lettermen, etc… I love digging these old songs up and trying them. Thanks, @Christopher_H

      The Skeeter Davis version was in ’62 or ’63. The Carpenters did a great cover in ’73.
