Heard If Not For You just this afternoon. Pretty sure it was also covered by Olivia Newton John many years ago.So I was driving again and heard this song. As I was listen I was thinking is this Dylan or some trying to sound like Dylan. Later hearing it was Dylan thought maybe Dylan was trying not to sound like Dylan.
As the song played during one of the non singing parts I thought this sounds like a George Harrison song, thinking the music goes with "without you" or something but I hear George singing.
Nope not that one, next.
nope, listen Nilsson and Bad finger nope not those either.
worm still playing george singing, then thought wait is it another dylan song
google bob dylan without you, found this
one more search found the music with george singing(wrong lyrics in my head to start)
Once you post that I did recall she sang that song too. Only slight embarrassed I did watch the video.Heard If Not For You just this afternoon. Pretty sure it was also covered by Olivia Newton John many years ago.
You might be thinking about jp richardson / big bopper. It think some of his songs start like that.So I have heard this song many time on the radio and else places growing up and as an adult and in my memory I keep hearing the song starting off with a nonsense manacle laugh like sound before the words begin, but cant seem to find a version that starts that way. I did find a version with what I recall the start should sound like but it is toward the end of the song. The video is keyed to start at that point. Curious if it other had heard that version too.
