1969 SONG OF THE DAY- ‘SHE CAME IN THROUGH THE BATHROOM WINDOW’- JOE COCKER

 

1969 Song of the Day is “She Came In Through The Bathroom Window’- by Joe Cocker. Written by Paul McCartney it is credited as a Lennon-McCartney song and was on the side 2 medley of songs on Abbey Road which was released in the fall of 1969. Cocker didn’t take long in picking up on it -and including it on his Joe Cocker! album released in November of 1969- and having a hit single out of it reaching #30 on the Billboard Top 40. He also recorded another Abbey Road song from this album- George Harrison’s something.  Of course Joe Cocker’s most famous Beatles cover was his #1 UK hit With A Little Help From My Friends from 1968. Cocker was a master at covering Beatles songs- he also did -his first ever single I’ll Cry Instead.” You’ve Got To Hide Your Love Away,” Let It Be”, “Come Together” and sort of a Beatles cover- one of his biggest hits “You Are So Beautiful” by 5th Beatle Billy Preston. One of his best covers was of She Came In Through The Bathroom Window.” Is it blasphemy to say that Cocker’s cover is more memorable than the original?  Every time I see Cocker on stage I can’t help but think of John Belushi doing his Joe Cocker on Saturday Night Live.

  1. Joe Crocker. Ahh. I love hoarse-voiced singers.
    Animal House: Whenever something unexpectedly good happens, my husband imitates that boy in his bedroom: “THANK you, God!”
    Blazing Saddles: My most favorite scene in the entire movie until the end of time:
    “You need to eat something.”
    “No. Food makes me SICK.” (said with disgust)
    “A man doesn’t eat and drinks like that…he is going to die.”
    Pause. Pause.
    (hopefully) “When?”
    lmao !
