Today’s New Favourite Best Song Ever

November 16, 2009

I don’t think I’ve seen footage of Them before. The singer, I’m sure I don’t have to remind you, is Van Morrison. The song was written by Bert Berns, who is one the 60’s managers/producers/songwriters/players who gets a little overlooked. But I rate him. He worked out of the Brill Building for a time, and to give you a small snapshot of his stunning CV, he wrote Hang on Sloopy, I Want Candy, Piece of my Heart, Everybody Needs Somebody to Love, 25 Miles and Twist and Shout, which are songs from the very top drawer. He took over from Lieber and Stoller as Staff Producer at Atlantic, and as a little sidenote, he also managed and produced Lulu. Pretty good going.
