To Love Somebody

If you've been watching American Idol then no doubt this song is still buzzing in your head; for not only Jordin sang it but Barry Gibb sang it as well.

Some songs stand the test of time and as this clip shows, its been doing so for 40 years.

Of course those hard-core Idol fans would be feeling a sense of deja vu because four seasons ago both Clay Aiken and Josh Gracin sang the song.

Here is Clay doing it:

Josh does a country version...

Both of those guys got great feedback from the judges which proves my point about Idol or any singing competition for that matter. That you're chances of success are much higher when you sing a great song that everyone knows and loves. A lot of times they pick some obscure song and it simply doesn't work.

Good luck now getting the song out of your head!

I have heard that the song was written for Otis Redding though I don't know that he ever recorded it.

And of course, Janis Joplin sang it too.

Jordin sang it this year as well. However, Clay's version will be my favorite pretty much until the end of time! :-)
