244: another twice as nice...

Hi.
Today 4 great tunes get their twice as nice:
The immortal Ode To Billie Joe.
(the saga continues :-)
The Brook Benton classic.
(the Mark Lanegan version I already put out on post nr.29,
the Margie Joseph version on post nr.235 and maybe
the most famous by Bobby Bland over at post nr.48)
The Buddy Buie/James Cobb/Harry Middlebrooks Jr.
/Mike Shapiro song, made famous by a.o. the Classics IV.
And finally the Hammerstein/Rodgers song which needs
ofcourse no further introduction...
(also a few versions on post nr.196)
-
Enjoy, and before I forget:
thanks to all the original bloggers out there,
without whom this constantly cosy, coincidental corny
cover-continuum couldn't continue co-exist...
