Title: POLL: ROUND 12 | Here's What I Believe Album Survivor
Post by: blackenroses on November 07, 2015, 04:06:26 PM
Back again! We now visit the latest full studio album from Joe, Here's What I Believe. The album came off the back of the huge Classic era, an era that spun big album sales. How would he follow the success of that? The answer, throwing everything and anything at the wall and seeing what stuck. The album divided opinion, tracks that people despised, grew to love and and everything in between. It became a messy campaign, single without video, promotion that didn't really work and it seemed like the public weren't here for this album. :glum:

So this is where you come in. Which of the tracks are you still loving and which deserve to be thrown out of the Joesphere? I am sure this series will be explosive, it seems we've all got something to say (good or bad) about this era..

First round, have your say! :)

BYE, 'When I Need You'! :cry:

16th: When I Need You (7/19 - 36.8%)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=uP7kC6jUo3I

Joe's voice is like a silk and velvet sheet upon your skin...so SMOOTH :inlove:

I LOVE this song very much :blush1: I hate to admit it, but this sappy song gets me every damn time I hear it. I swear listening to it is like traveling through time back to the days when nothing mattered but having a good time. :blush1:

P/s I just found out that the chorus of this song is actually identical to the part of Leonard Cohen's song "Famous Blue Raincoat".The line "When I need you, I just close my eyes and I'm with you, and all that I so want to give you, is only a heart beat away" is the part "Jane came by with a lock of your hair, she said that you gave it to her that night that you planned to go clear". I loved Cohen's song, but I could never figure out what it reminds me of...

I agree, the vocals are brilliant - they invariably are. It's just the song that is lacking.

Time for E Penso to go. Another of the classical crossovers :)

Agree but my reason is that it's too much like a nursery rhyme for me- it doesn't build enough or challenge Joe's vocal enough. It's definitely on my skip list recorded or live.

14th: E Penso A Te // I Think of You (8/20 - 40%)

https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NhP_VBvCMwc

So the third song out is E Penso A Te (originally by Lucio Battisti). I'm not too bothered by it placing this low although I'd have put it higher myself. The words in this song are so simple but strong and amazing. Very well produced and arranged.

I kept them in past Your Voice and E Penso. There are better songs on the album - and as I've said in the past - I'm not interested in who wrote the song. For me it's all about the singing ... and a song and arrangement that shows off the singing to best advantage.

EDIT: Yikes - maybe I should have chosen Mayday. Can't bear to think My Love Will Find You might get such a low position. Such a beautiful song. Obviously right up my street because it is simple but effective.

One of my least favourite songs from Here's What I Believe.
Nice version but it doesn't top Demi's original. The emotion she puts into her song is irreplaceable in my opinion.

Finally :goofy: :hurrah: :wavehat:
I actually don't mind the song on its own though it could do without that falsetto (in the chorus), really sounds terrible. Also, tempo feels too fast. Song works better slowed down in my opinion.

I nearly didn't re-vote as I like both these songs. ILTY has grown on me so I've tried to save it.

I like IDWTTAI but I get irritated by Joe saying it's different to Rod. Yes it is but it's virtually identical to the Everything But The Girl version.

Me too ebj!

And I can't get out of my head that Joe always sings the wrong lyrics to my fav part of IDWTTAI  (except on the album!)-

"If I stand all alone, will the shadow hide the color of my heart;
blue for the tears, black for the night's fears."

I don't know, I'm not sure if this suits Joe too much. His vocal is too pure, Rod's huskiness suited this song.

Sorry - don't mean to question any one else's opinion as I am sure some would argue with mine but can't believe someone is voting for Love Of My Life as the least favourite!  :shock1:   :haha:

Me neither. But then I couldn't understand When I Need You going out first, nor My Love Will Find You and I Don't Want To Talk About It going so early  :cry:
All beautiful songs (though I suspect that, for some, When I Need You is tarnished by its association with the Leo Sayer version).
For me, I Don't Want To Talk About It is made vastly superior by Joe's pure tones.

Back to I Look To You then ;)

Great version. It's one of the highlight tracks on the album, for me. Which is weird as I was never fond of the Whitney version (until she died, and the lyrics took on a life of their own).
