Take This Tune - James Taylor & Carly Simon


Jamie hosts Take This Tune, a meme that offers you a singer, or song writer and/or a song for you to run with, then come up with something new for a new post.

this week she spotlights James Taylor singing "Sweet Baby James" both when he was a real young guy and in today.

Well, when I think of James Taylor I think of Carly Simon. Long ago they shared an 11-year marriage (1972-83) but broke up and went their separate ways.

Here they are way back when singing "Mockingbird" together on stage. Enjoy!

Awesome song. I love it. It's been so long since I've heard it :) Well done :)

Jamie said...

That was a great version of that song and as it happens another Lullabye. Excellent tie in all the way around. James Taylor of course remains one of the men with an "e" in his name about whom Carly may have written, "You're So Vain" though I'm betting on Warren Beatty.

Mary, I've just found a neat poetry meme site you might enjoy called Simply Snickers

These are two of my favorite singer songwriters. Great choice!

Linda said...

I have always enjoyed Carly Simons' music and she and James sang very well together but my favorite combination was James and Carole King. Now THERE was a duo!

Ah ... brings back mem'ries for sure! I loved this duo singing together.

FYI - I've just posted my Ruby Tuesday at Happily Retired Gal because I've got call in Jury Duty and the message said to report by 1pm today. If anyone cares to help out, I'd appreciate a link added to Mr. Linky because I don't know when I'll be back ... but I plan to visit when I do ;-)
Hugs and blessings,

James is one of the most talented singer-songwriters of all time. I saw him in concert a few years ago and he was simply amazing!
