♫ Feelings ♫

Being rather in a dark mood for the past several days, I was thinking to play Where Have All the Flowers Gone by Peter, Paul, and Mary.  That is, until I realized I have already played the song twice this year, and twice in prior years.  Okay, next up came this one by Morris Albert …

Somehow, when this song came to mind I had a feeling it was a Barry Manilow song, and when I found it was by Morris Albert, I was scratching my head wondering who the #$%& Morris Albert was.  Turns out that he was born in Brazil and came to the U.S. to study phonology at Columbia University. His only other chart appearance was Sweet Loving Man, which reached #93 US in 1976.

Released in 1974, Feelings hit #6 in the U.S., #3 in Canada, and #4 in the UK.

In 1986, French songwriter Louis Gasté successfully sued Albert for plagiarism on the grounds that the tune was taken from Gasté’s 1957 song “Pour Toi”; Gasté is now credited as the song’s co-author.

Feelings
Morris Albert

Feelings, nothing more than feelings,
Trying to forget my feelings of love
Teardrops rolling down on my face,
Trying to forget my feelings of love

Feelings, for all my life I’ll feel it
I wish I’ve never met you, girl; you’ll never come again

Feelings, wo-o-o feelings,
Wo-o-o, feel you again in my arms

Feelings, feelings like I’ve never lost you
And feelings like I’ve never have you again in my heart

Feelings, for all my life I’ll feel it
I wish I’ve never met you, girl; you’ll never come again

Feelings, feelings like I’ve never lost you
And feelings like I’ve never have you again in my life

Feelings, wo-o-o feelings,
Wo-o-o, feelings again in my arms
Feelings

Feelings, wo-o-o feelings,
Wo-o-o, feelings again in my arms
Feelings
