On my way home last night, this blurted out on the radio. Haven’t heard it for quite a while, this power ballad by Nazareth. But I remembered at the same time that it is not a Nazareth original. Almost unimaginable for me because I grew up with Nazareth with this song. Another case when the cover beats the original version. This time the trick that worked is taking it two or three octaves higher.
Here’s the live version of The Everly Brothers.
Keith Richards took it to another level but more tilted to the original country version, with the beautiful Norah Jones
Rod Stewart revived the song in 2006 in his album series of old ballad cover releases
