Jukebox Saturday Night for Aug. 20th, 2016: The Sky Watcher, Someone, and Same Girl Edition

Let's start with something really nice ...

"Sky Watcher" by Brian Simpson from his Out of a Dream release (2015)

The time lapse footage in this video is also truly wonderful. (The starting still image is from the movie Contact and has nothing to do with what is featured in the video.)


Next up, a nice smooth jazz instrumental by Tim Heintz ...

"Someone" by Tim Heintz from his Searching the Heart release (1997)


And we'll end with a song I've always really liked ...

"Am I the Same Girl" by Swing Out Sister from the duo's Get in Touch with Yourself studio album (1992)

This song has a somewhat complicated history. As the Keeper of All Knowledge indicates, this song was written by Eugene Record and Sonny Sanders and first recorded in 1968 by the late Barbara Acklin and subsequently in 1969 by the late Dusty Springfield. It was also redone at that time as an instrumental by Young-Holt Unlimited under the title "Soulful Strut." This popular 1992 version is by Swing Out Sister.

OK, that's all for now. Please see my previous entry for an update. My next entry will not be until late Monday or early Tuesday.
