Everybody Needs Somebody Sometimes  

Ann-Margaret was born in Sweden and came to America in 1946. In the 1960's Ann-Margaret began a recording career in addition to her already notable film career. While her music ventures didn't prove as successful, she did have a song "I Just Don't Understand" peak on the Billboard Charts at #17 in 1961. Much later, she had this song "Everybody Needs Somebody Sometimes" released in 1981 on First American Records. The song was popular in clubs and reached #22 on the charts. "Everybody..." features brilliant production and writing by Paul Sabu and highlights the soft and throaty qualities of Ann-Margaret's voice. "Everybody Needs Somebody Sometimes (Part 2)" is percussive, with just the right amount of horns and synths.

    Ann-Margaret's best disco turn, IMO. She performed this live at the Paradise Garage!

    Pleez post the vocal?

    Hey hey...
    I will get a recording of Part 1 to post as well in the next few weeks. It was my intention to post them both, but I got all distracted and forgot to record the first one!

    Love it, but it doesn't sound like '83, it's straight up disco. Not that there's anything wrong with that! I also love "This Girl's Back In Town" which was originally written for Donna Summer.
