Most likely this is an even lazier attempt at confusing listeners than soundalikes: These remakes aren’t motivated by artistry, but by money. Soundalikes are a completely mercenary venture. The whole goal is to duplicate the original song in every respect, using studio musicians and vocalists, in an effort to lure consumers on digital music services ...

At the bottom of that sheet the publisher information is given: "U.E. 161". U.E. is short for Universal Edition. At their webpage, they have a catalogue. Searching for number 161 leads to the following entry: "Lemoine H.: Études enfantines op. 37 [1] UE 161" So, the piece is from an etude op. 37 by Henry Lemoine. It is played at ...

The spanish flamenco part was not composed by Queen, but improvised by an external musician, Steve Howe, invited for this song. Wikipedia article about the song (according to Prog Magazine) says: Inside, there’s Freddie, Brian and Roger all sitting together. They go: ‘Let’s play you the album’. Of course, I’m hearing it for the first time […] And they ...

Deezer.com lists Morricone as composer for the Ave Maria Guarani. Given how popular the text is, I don't consider the exclusion method as reliable, so without having listened to it, this seems most probable answer by far. Since Deutsche Grammophon has a CD recording attributing it to Morricone and he seems to conduct it personally here in the Shazam video, ...

According to Wikipedia: "Before the Great Collapse" was the first JMT single to be solely performed by group vocalist Vinnie Paz, who uses the track as a suicide letter, written to his mother.

I'm not sure how accurate the liner notes to George Michael albums are, but the only credited bassist on the studio album that contains "Cowboys And Angels", Listen Without Prejudice Vol. 1, is Deon Estus. It appears that Estus had been playing bass for Michael since his days with Wham!, and Michael even helped produce Estus's solo album, Spell, which was ...

This transcription of a George Harrison interview in 1969 says that John Lennon played it: John plays lead guitar and sings the same as he plays. And, uh...this is good because it has, um - it's really basically a bit like a blues. The riff that he sings and plays is really a very basic blues-type thing. But again, it's very original sort of John-type ...

A quick Google for "blonde female guitarist" revealed her to be called "Orianthi Panagaris". She is a very big deal indeed, having been hand-picked by Michael Jackson for the ill-fated "This Is It" concerts, and therefore likely appears in the rehearsal film that was commercially released.

Beatles' member George Harrison famously said something similar when complaining about modern music (the below quote specifically referred to the Spice Girls): The good thing about them is that you can look at them with the sound turned down. http://www.cnn.com/SHOWBIZ/9708/30/harrison.criticism/ https://calendar.songfacts.com/july/12/18136 ...

Wikipedia has it as composed by George Michael and his musical partner in Wham! Andrew Ridgeley, although in some places (Japan, Canada and the United States) it is only credited to George Michael. This is confirmed by the back sleeve of the single:

Robert E. Dolan ((August 3, 1908 – September 26, 1972), wrote the music for the movie, "Murder, He Says". Dolan passed away two years before Voegli wrote his original theme. Dolan was a prolific music composer, scorer and director. He composed or directed the music in at least 60 movies. He was nominated 8 times for an award in movie scoring by the Academy ...

I don't know the top example, but the bottom example is the very famous quartet ("Bella figlia dell'amore") from the third act of Verdi's opera Rigoletto. This particular performance is a rather...busty one by Pavarotti and Isola Jones. You can enjoy it here.

According to Wikipedia, there are over 25,000 covers of this song! However, the most commercially successful was Billy Stewart's version. It hit the charts in 1966, so the time frame fits. I had never heard this version before researching this answer, but his voice could conceivably be mistaken for a woman with a lower voice. It seems to be a reasonable ...

EDIT In light of @BrianThomas's answer, I also contacted Guvna B, who explained that Ife Ogunjobi had replaced Dylan Jones in Ezra Collective. For example, this article from The Daily Californian (26 March 2019) mentions it. And this article from radio station KNKX (6 Dec 2019) indicates that Dylan Jones is back with the group after being replaced by Ife ...

This is "Downtown" by Mrs. Miller, a novelty act popular in the 1960s. Like Florence Foster Jenkins before her, and William Hung after her, Mrs. Miller was beloved by audiences for her cheerful and indominable obliviousness to the wretchedness of her singing. You may be conflating her a bit in your mind with Jenkins,...

It seems it might have been Franco Ricciardi, playing two roles (Arturo and Normanno). In the MYTO 2009 album release back cover it seems to appear his name: [] Another reference can be found in esdf-opera.de.

The song is "The Great Gig in the Sky" by Pink Floyd, from the 1973 album Dark Side of the Moon. I imagine that album was very influential in Curon's life (as that album and Pink Floyd is for many who grew up in the 1970's). I think there's a connection with that song personally for Curon, and it also is connected with the airplane symbolism in the movie ...

The picture on the linked cover is of Richard Chamberlain & Rachel Ward, who starred in the TV series. The song is, as you said, Henri Mancini, sung by his daughter, Monica.

The wikipedia article has a good discussion of the claims of the various individuals to be the author. It has what would seem to be a clinching point in favour of King John IV of Portugal, a manuscript in his library which predates John Wade's version. This detail is not mentioned in this other discussion of the topic which argues strongly for Wade. From ...

I believe the singer is Paul Anka. His song, "The Painter," was released in 1976 on the album, Paul Anka - The Painter, and was collected on the recording, "Timeless: Favourite Love Songs For All Time," which features a close-up of flower petals on the cover art.

On a long shot, Pat Benatar, but rather brief signature to fit in the space. Google search brought back these : Crimes of Passion. Get Nervous. Because of the nature of the question, links to back up the answer are bound to be from sites where albums or other merchandise is for sale.

The young Patchaï appears to be the son of Solange Reyes, the sister of the Reyes brothers of the Gipsy Kings. Canut Reyes writes on his blog about another clip featuring his nephew: There's also a clip of the six year old Patchaï singing with the whole family. At the end his uncle Nicolas says the boy started singing at the ...

It's "Just Cancel My Dream" recorded by Larry Green and his Orchestra in 1946, on the B-side of "Little Girl", and featuring Don Grady on lead vocals (RCA Victor cat# 20-2813). Note: the video starts with the vocal chorus which starts at about 1:30 in the original. The Internet Archive has the original recording, also downloadable as MP3.
