Today I’m playing Islands in the Stream, a classic 1983 song written by the Bee Gees and performed by Dolly Parton and Kenny Rogers. It actually knocked Bonnie Tyler’s Total Eclipse of the Heart off the number #1 position in the US charts (mental note, I’ve not yet played that one!)
A bit more upbeat than the rest of this week’s songs, here’s Save the Last Dance for Me. It was first recorded by Ben E. King and The Drifters in 1960, then by Dolly Parton in 1983 and by Michael Bublé in 2006. My version is a bit more Bublé than Ben E. King! It would have been nice to be backed by a full band and brass section, but I hope you enjoy this solo version!
