W&M By Gerry Goffin And Carole King
A brassy version. Okie comments:
I used to perform this song with appropriate visuals on a diorama behind me in Vegas. It was great fun. People got used to seeing me perform it and once I knew what they were expecting, I would quietly change the visuals, which, of course, made absolutely no sense with the song. Wasn't uncommon to see me perform expecting to see me on a NY high rise or a beautiful sky scene but rather be staring at a bunch of cow butts or even the La Brea Tar Pits. Such was my wacky approach to music and show. I was billed as "The Mad Scientist of Music" surrounded by 15 keyboards, several guitars, horns, vibes and whatever I could get my hands on. Worked my show flanked by a drummer on one side and a percussionist on the other. Great fun. Loved to see people smile....guess I still do. "All Kinds Of Music for All Kinds of People"

Mark Ronson w/ Bruno Mars (2014)
W&M by Mark Ronson, Jeff Bhasker, Bruno Mars, & Philip Lawrence
"Uptown Funk" is a song recorded by English producer Mark Ronson, with guest vocals by American recording artist Bruno Mars, for Ronson's fourth studio album, Uptown Special (2015). Sony Music Entertainment released the song as the album's lead single on 10 November 2014. Jeff Bhasker assisted the artists in co-writing and co-producing the track, with additional writing from Philip Lawrence. This is Mars' fourth collaboration with Ronson (following Mars' own songs "Locked Out of Heaven", "Moonshine", and "Gorilla") and sixth with Bhasker (after "Talking to the Moon", "Young Girls" and the three previously mentioned songs).
The single was a commercial success, spending twelve weeks at number one on the US Billboard Hot 100, seven weeks at number one on the UK Singles Chart, and topped the charts in several other countries including Australia, Canada, France, Ireland and New Zealand. In the week of 25 January 2015, the song was streamed a record 2,340,000 times in a single week in the UK: a record since surpassed by Ellie Goulding's "Love Me like You Do" (streamed 2.58 million times). The song also set a new record for the highest number of streams in one week worldwide, with 15 million streams, and in the US, with 4.8 million streams. In 2015, "Uptown Funk" won Ronson the Brit Award for British Single of the Year.

The Everly Brothers record reached number one on the Billboard Pop chart and the Cash Box Best Selling Records chart, despite having been banned from Boston radio stations for lyrics that, at the time, were considered suggestive, according to a 1986 interview with Don Everly. "Wake Up Little Susie" also spent seven weeks atop the Billboard country chart and got to number two on the UK Singles Chart. The song was ranked at #318 on the Rolling Stone magazine's list of The 500 Greatest Songs of All Time.

Johnny Smith (1954), The Ventures (1960)
W&M by Johnny Smith
"Walk, Don't Run" is an instrumental composition written and first recorded by jazz guitarist Johnny Smith in 1954. The tune is essentially a contrafact of the chord changes to the standard "Softly, as in a Morning Sunrise". The Tacoma-based instrumental rock band the Ventures released their version of the tune as a single in spring 1960 on Dolton Records. This version is often regarded as one of the first surf songs to make the Billboard Hot 100 chart, peaking at #2 and reaching #3 on the Cash Box magazine chart for five weeks in August and September 1960.
If you use the Timbres of Heaven sound font, the guitar part will be played as a Gibson ES-335.

Roy Orbison (1969)
W&M by Roy Orbison and Bill Dees
One of Roy's most moving and powerful performances. Had it been released in the earlier part of the decade, it likely would have been a #1 hit, as it should have been. Bubbled under the Billboard Hot 100 at #121 in July 1968, and charted at #53 in Australia, #39 on UK Singles chart, and #93 in Canada. Original Billboard review: "One of Orbison's most potent disks in some time is this exceptional original ballad that he delivers in fine style."

Roy Orbison (1969)
W&M by Roy Orbison and Bill Dees
Roy Orbison's Many Moods, also sometimes referred to as The Many Moods of Roy Orbison, was the rock & roll legend's 1969 album, mostly made up of great showcases for his boldest ballad singing, including highlights such as "Unchained Melody," "More," "Heartache," and "Truly, Truly, True." The record appeared in the wake of the tragic fire that killed two of the singer's three children, and in that regard it's amazing that it holds up as well as it does. If there's a lack of driving rock -- "I Recommend Her" is as close as it gets -- it's more than made up for by the intense, almost operatic singing in which Orbison engages on most of the stuff here, with "What Now My Love" and its bolero-like buildup being the highlight, followed closely by "Walk On."

Bruce Hornsby and the Range (1986)
From Wikipedia:
"The Way It Is" is a song recorded by Bruce Hornsby and the Range from their 1986 album The Way It Is. It topped the charts in the United States, Canada and the Netherlands in 1986, and peaked inside the top twenty in such countries as Ireland, Switzerland and the United Kingdom. Written by Bruce Hornsby, it made explicit reference to the American Civil Rights Movement. Musically, the song is characterized by two long lyrical piano solos.
The song portrays 1980s America from a critical perspective. The opening verse recounts a story taking place at a line for welfare that illustrate a divide between the rich and poor. The chorus presents several lines insisting that social ills are "just the way it is", and repeatedly suggests resigning oneself to them as a fact of life-however, the chorus ends with the author rebuking this attitude by insisting "but don't you believe them."
The second verse recounts past social issues from the voice of someone supporting racial segregation. The author responds in a narrative voice, insisting his view that if those who make laws took them into careful consideration they would be convinced that laws enforcing principles like racial segregation are morally wrong. The song reminds the listener that it was at one time argued that racial segregation was "just the way it is", and suggests that legislation and what the author views as progress on current social issues should be pursued without regard to those who insist "some things will never change."
The third verse recounts the passage of the Civil Rights Act of 1964 as a victory in the civil rights movement, but insists that more is needed. In particular, the verse highlights individual prejudice and employment discrimination as an enduring form of racism. The third chorus suggests that it only feels like "some things will never change" when we wait for social problems to change themselves rather than taking steps ourselves to actively change them.

The Drifters (1962)
W&M by Gerry Goffin & Carole King
The first LP appearance by the Ben E. King-era Drifters, as was usually the case with this group, took place more than a year after King himself had left the group, replaced by Rudy Lewis whose voice is featured on most of the tracks here. This album is more unified than its predecessor, which is understandable as it appeared in the wake of a succession of hits utilizing the same core group and the same style of production, mixing strings into an R&B sound and creating something new and attractive that crossed over very easily to pop listeners. "When My Little Girl Is Smiling," "Room Full of Tears," and the title track exemplify the sound, but the finest cut here might be "Nobody but Me."

George Jones (1959)
W&M By J. P. Richardson (the Big Bopper)
Wikipedia: Jones recalls arriving for the recording session under the influence of a great deal of alcohol and the track took approximately 80 takes. This was perhaps understandable since his lifelong friend the Big Bopper - whose composition he was recording - had been killed during the preceding week. To make matters worse, Buddy Killen, who played the upright bass on the recording, was reported as having severely blistered fingers from having to play his bass part 80 times. Killen not only threatened to quit the session, but also threatened to physically harm Jones for the painful consequences of Jones's drinking. Ultimately, producer Pappy Daily opted to use the first take of the song, even though Jones flubs the word "slug." Record executive Don Pierce later explained, "We tried doing the song again, but it never was as good as it was that first time. So we just released it that way."

Its lyrics are about the superstar life, and how someone can get trapped in the world of fame.

Many cover versions: Tom Jones, Johnny Mathis, Robert Goulet, Andy Williams, Bobby Goldsboro, and Engelbert Humperdinck, an instrumental version by José Feliciano. Also Ray Charles, The Meters, These Animal Men, The Troggs, Sergio Mendes & Brasil '66, Kool & The Gang, Shawn Lee, Smokey Robinson and the Miracles, James Taylor, R.E.M., The Clouds, Earl Van Dyke, King Harvest, Johnny Cash, Tony Joe White, Guns N' Roses, Alan Pasqua, Villagers, and Wade Hayes. A German cover version was recorded by Thomas Fritsch, and also by Katja Ebstein. Topi Sorsakoski recorded a Finnish version in 1995. After Campbell's death, Webb sang the song with Little Big Town as a tribute during the 51st Annual Country Music Association Awards on November 8, 2017. The BBC went so far as to say, "one of those rare songs that seems somehow to exist in a world of its own - not just timeless but ultimately outside of modern music" -- whatever that means.

W&M by Chris Isaak
"Wicked Game" is a song by American rock musician Chris Isaak, released from his third studio album Heart Shaped World (1989). Despite being released as a single in 1990, it did not become a hit until it was later featured in the David Lynch film Wild at Heart (1990). Lee Chesnut, an Atlanta radio station music director who loved David Lynch films, began playing the song and it quickly became a nationwide top ten hit in January 1991, reaching #6 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart, making it the first hit song of his career.

Words and Music by Ross Bagdasarian -- aka: David Seville
The song was a hit, holding number one for three weeks in the Billboard Top 100 chart. Nothing makes any reference to chipmunks, but the song is sometimes included on Chipmunk compilations, as if the Chipmunks had provided the voice of the Witch Doctor. Bagdasarian did record a Chipmunks version of "Witch Doctor", which appeared on the second Chipmunks album, Sing Again with the Chipmunks, in 1960.

Sam Cooke (1960)
W&M by Lou Adler, Herb Alpert, and Sam Cooke
"Wonderful World" (occasionally referred to as "(What A) Wonderful World") is a song by American singer-songwriter Sam Cooke, released on April 14, 1960 by Keen Records. Recorded during an impromptu session the previous year, it was cut during Cooke's last recording session at former label Keen Records. He signed with RCA Victor in 1960, and "Wonderful World," then unreleased, was issued as a single in competition. "Wonderful World" was mainly composed by songwriting team Lou Adler and Herb Alpert, but Cooke revised it before recording to reference the subject of education more.
"Wonderful World" ended up doing substantially better on the charts than several of his early RCA singles, becoming his biggest hit single breakthrough since "You Send Me" (1957). The song peaked at number 12 on the Billboard Hot 100, and hit number two on Billboard's Hot R&B Sides chart.
