to love somebody

the above is a video of a song called ‘to love somebody’, covered by ray lamontagne (say ‘la-mon-tain’) and damien rice, originally recorded by the beegees. this version is done in the folk-rock style, quite different from the original. no offense to the beegees, i am sure they are funky dudes, but i was never a fan of wailing falsettos. i have always considered damien rice a great singer but in this song he really is outdone by ray lamontagne, who has been said to have a voice that conjures ‘smoke and ether’ (damn, i love that phrase).
