Task 9 (4/6)
Choose a song performed by Nat King Cole or Frank Sinatra.
(Other than “Unforgettable” or “You Do Something to Me”)
Next, find an older version of the same song recorded by a different artist.
Post both links here.
Task 10 (4/6)
Find a Doo-Wop song originally recorded by a black group in the 40s/50s (Other than “Sh-Boom”).
Now find a cover version from the same era recorded by a white group.
Post both links here and briefly describe the difference.
(Please be precise and use musical terms we’ve learned in class)
What are your thoughts on cover songs?
Also, what do you think of the change from how cover songs are seen today vs how they were seen in the 40s and 50s?
