Track of the Day : Lorez Alexandria - "Send In The Clowns" (1977)




Way too busy at the moment to blog, but here's a quick post.

This song is kinda perfect - I know it's been revived a lot, but I keep coming back to it. I'd associated the song "Send In The Clowns" with washed-out cabaret singers on daytime talk shows until I heard Lorez Alexandria's magnificent version.

Listen to it build, then take it home!

Hi Fd,
grabbed the pic from your "Morning" post via Google, didn't realise you'd also posted "Send In the Clowns".

Fd said...

No problem, Simon. We both have a very good taste, very similar. Check my first mix coming up and tell me what you think.
Best wishs again from Spain. :)
