THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
439-Bill Medley and Jennifer Warnes-(I’ve Had)The Time Of My Life.
1987-Number 6 single.It also re-entered in 1990 reaching Number 8.
Best Bit-At 3.22. Bill Medley was reluctant to record the song because he thought Dirty Dancing sounded like a porno.
Two of the songs co-writers are Franke Previte and John DeNicola. Previte had been a member of New Jersey Rock band Franke and the Knockouts who had achieved three top thirty singles on Billboard in the early 1980’s. The band had recorded the original version of ‘Time Of My Life’ and the films musical director Jimmy Lenner wanted to use it but wanted ‘bigger names’ to record a new version.
The female vocals were first offered to Donna Summer but she turned it down,it was then offered to Jennifer Warnes who had already had great success with another film soundtrack song,her duet with Joe Cocker ‘Up Where We Belong’ from ‘An Officer And A Gentleman’ had been a Billboard Number 1 and Grammy award winning song in 1982.Once Medley(see also best songs 782) who had always been a fan knew Warnes was on board he accepted his role.

1972-Never released as a single.

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.

COMING NEXT THE BEST 440.

Listening to music will not cure an illness,nor make you live longer or make you more wealthy, but it will make you feel better,maybe even younger and you will be the richer for it.

Far beyond the pale horizon
some place near the desert strand
where my Studebaker takes me
that’s where I’ll make my stand,
but wait can’t you see that Holzer mane,
what’s her name.

THE 1000 BEST SONGS IN THE WORLD EVER.
443-Ray Noble and his Orchestra with Al Bowlly on vocals-The Very Thought Of You.
1934-Did not chart in the UK as there was no chart until 1952,but did reach Number 1 on Billboard.
Best Bit-At 2.46.I used to get a little embarrassed playing vinyl with the sound of static coming through the speakers,but I must admit in these days of sterile clear audio I do miss it a bit,(but only a bit.)
In the 1920’s and 1930’s the real ‘Pop Stars’ were the ‘Big Band’ leaders and there was no bigger than Ray Noble who composed this song.Over the years it has been covered by many artists as diverse as Frank Sinatra,Ella Fitzgerald,Rod Stewart and Elvis Costello.
Al Bowlly was one of the most sought after vocalists of the period recording approximately 1000 songs in the 1920’s and 1930’s,he is considered to be a pioneer of the art of ‘Crooning.’He died in 1941 when a Luftwaffe Parachute Mine detonated outside his flat in London at ten past three in the morning.
