Subject: RE: Lyr Req: Side by Side (Harry Woods)
Now, Harry Woods' "Side By Side."
Because I enjoy listening to those little radio stations that play
Oldies-But-Goodies vintage popular music,
I have heard an elderly recording of this song.
It opened with verse 1, then proceeded to the chorus.
I don't recall Verse 2 at all, my presumption is Verse 2 was left out of this performance.
And the singer was:
Frankie Laine.
So that's DECADES ago.

And that must by Kay Starr whose vocal performance I remember hearing
a VERY long time ago.
A big BROAD performance, but then Kay Starr was like that.

Ray Charles sang "Side By Side"
on his duet album,
Ray Charles and Betty Carter.
No verses, AND
the song is done in double-time,
REALLY fast.
