According to Bill Mack, the person who "discovered" Leann Rimes, he had written the song for Patsy Cline, but she never recorded it before she died. When he heard Rimes' vocal similarities to Cline, he recorded her singing the song, feeling that it were as though Cline were singing it. As a result, some people still believe that Rimes' rendition is an overdub of Cline.
I beg to differ with google and Answers.com. You people need to do more research before letting American Idol judges give out wrong answers. LeAnn Rimes recorded this song in 1996. In 1993 a 4 episode sci-fi show called Space Rangers had an episode with this song playing in the background from an old juke box during a discussion by 2 of the stars of the show in a bar on some back water planet. If Patsy Cline did not record the song then who did. Your answer does not match up with the dates. LeAnn Rimes would have to have recorded this song at 11 years old in order for it to have aired on that TV show in 1993. I am not a professional but I do know how to research. So my question is: Where did the recording of Patsy Cline's version of Blue come from to be used on that show?
I am not familiar with Space Rangers so I cannot say for sure that you are mistaken, but you will not find this song on any of Cline's albums. She may have performed it at some time or another, but if it was recorded, it was never released. Many of her songs have the word "blue" in them and sound similar, so is it possible it was "Lovesick Blues" or "In Care of the Blues"?
Actually, LeAnn did record "Blue" when she was 11 and you can find that version on her independent album titled "All That" which was released before her first album with Curb Records.
No, the song was written for Patsy Cline by a radio dj named Bill Mack in the early 60's but she was killed in a plane crash before she could recored it. Then, over 30 years later, he heard a little girl by the name of LeAnn Rimes sing the national anthem and thought it would be perfect for her. LeAnn was the first artist to record the song and it became a huge hit for her in 1996. "Blue" was also the title of her first major album and she went on to win a Grammy for best country vocal performance for "Blue" in 1997.
Yes, in 1961
Imagine That - Patsy Cline song - was created in 1962.
No. Patsy Cline died in that tragic plane crash in March of 1963. Ten years later, the song would be a hit for Jeannie Pruit.
The song, "Blue," was originally for Patsy Cline. But, Patsy died, before she had the chance to record it. The writer would eventually make money off from Leanne Rimes version, and it would boost her career. However, the songwriter did a disservice to the other females in country music by not allowing them to record it. Many people believe, Reba McEntire could have done it better.
'Stand By Your Man' was co-written by Tammy Wynette and Billy Sherrill and first released in 1968; Patsy Cline was killed in a plane crash in 1963.
If she did, it was lost or just never released. Being a country music fan since 1966, and a big fan of Patsy Cline, I never have heard any song recorded by her using the word unicorn.
LeAnn was the first to sing her hit Blue, it was offered to Patsy Cline but she declined to record it. It was written by Legendary Country DJ Bill Mack. Bill Macks biggest moment in music came in 1997 when his song, "BLUE", made LeAnn Rimes and he won a Grammy when it was voted "The Country Song Of The Year", the highest honor that can be bestowed on a songwriter. Correction 1: Patsy didn't decline to record it. She died before she even heard the song. Bill Mack, the writer never had the chance to give it to Patsy. Correction 2: Leann Rimes was not the first to record the song. Bill Mack and Kenny Roberts each recorded versions of the song in the 1960s and Australian singer Katheryn Pitt released a version of the song in 1993.
Patsy Cline sang "Crazy", written by Willie Nelson. (Wikipedia). "Crazy" became the #1 jukebox song of all time according to Wikipedia.
It's about a lost love referred to as the singer's "rose of San Antone."
Bill Mack originally wrote that song for Patsy Cline back in the 1950's. She was going to record it when unfortunately she was taken from this by a plane crash. When Leann was discovered at a talent show in Oklahoma, Bill mack heard a demo tape of her voice and thought "damn she's just like Patsy" and the rest is history. Leann has covered nearly all of Patsy's catalog. But nobody will ever sing as rich and full as Patsy.
'Crazy' was written by Willie Nelson and first recorded by Patsy Cline in 1961. 'Crazy' is also the name of a song written and performed by Seal in 1991.
Hell No - you have to do more than have one hit and remake a hit song by the famous Patsy Cline
Crazy, released by Patsy Cline on October 16, 1961 is her most famous song. The song was written by another country superstar, Willie Nelson. She has also had major hits with Walkin' After Midnight and I Fall to Pieces.
Patsy Cline had the most sought after backup group for all recording artist, The Jordanaires. The Jordanaires was a gospel music group, but, after recording backup with Elvis Presley, artist in all types of music wanted them to sing backup for them as well. I'm not sure who backs up Willie Nelson. I do know he wrote the song, and it was a smash hit for Patsy.
I didn't find ''You Belong to Me'' in karaoke songs yet but you should take a look to http://www.downloadfreekaraokesongs.com/ There is Crazy, I Fall to Pieces and Walking after Midnight in the Patsy Cline section available in karaoke files. You can even play them online if you have Quick Time Player installed! Hope it helps!
I Go to Pieces ( grim humor) song is not about vehicular accidents. ( sadly, many rock songs are)- but it might be grimly prophetic.
Elmo and Patsy, a comedy duo, popularized the song Grandma Got Run over by a Reindeer in 1984. It has become an all-time favorite Christmas novelty record since then.
