Fabulous Friday: "Spinning Wheel"

I'm closing out my tribute to Blood, Sweat, and Tears with "Spinning Wheel." I love this frozen-in-amber video, I think the lead singer thought he was channeling Burt Reynolds. Which he was.

And an added bonus - - how about the same song by the divine Miss Shirley Bassey. Girlfriend is a MESS, but my kind of mess! She's channeling Shirley Bassey! I especially love how, in the extended note on the phrase, "the colors that are real," she really commits to the EE vowel. Other singers might be a little more tentative, but not Miss Shirley, she is never tentative.
