One of my top 5 songs of all time, the brilliant vocals of Michael McDonald with the Doobie Brothers. Amazing track. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=dJe1iUuAW4M
I was aware of a couple of other versions of this track — the best of these is by Matt Bianco (one of my favourite groups). https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=JibHpfeR3wY
and I’ve also got a 7’ of Aretha singing it. Not in the same league as the other two versions, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EgG8jJAI8u4
So, then I had a dig around YouTube — which is brilliant for finding cover versions.
I found a George Michael live version which I found pretty poor. A few more versions of varying quality
And then I found this:
Neri Per Caso – What A Fool Believes ft. Mario Biondi
It’s great to find something new and different. Lots of skill in this version and must have taken an age to harmonise. It took me a a while to get used to the low voice — but this is a terrific version of a terrific song. Much recommended!
