Ex-Enuff Z’Nuff frontman Donnie Vie releases cover of The Beatles’ “You’re Gonna Lose That Girl”
Former Enuff Z’Nuff frontman Donnie Vie has released his cover of The Beatles‘ “You’re Gonna Lose That Girl.”
Wikipedia states the following in part about The Beatles‘ song (with slight edits):
“”You’re Going to Lose That Girl” is a song by the English rock band The Beatles from their 1965 album and film Help!, written by John Lennon and Paul McCartney. Capitol Records originally titled the song “You’re Gonna Lose That Girl” in the United States…
The last song recorded before breaking off to make the film, it was composed at Lennon’s house in Weybridge. In the lyrics the singer tells his “friend” that, if he does not value his girl, the singer will “make a point of taking her away” from him. To The Beatles‘ familiar twist beat and using variations of familiar doo-wop chords, Lennon‘s lead singing is set in a call-and-response with the enthusiastic answering harmonies of McCartney and George Harrison, offering a last glimpse of the early Beatles’ musical home turf.
The song’s bridge has a key change similar to that of the record’s previous track “Another Girl”, moving up a minor third to G major, the relative major of the tonic minor. In this case the bridge concludes a measure early, diving a semitone down to meet the verse.
To fatten the sound, McCartney overdubbed a background piano (a job that once would have been done by producer George Martin “live” on the backing track) and Ringo Starr added bongos, the addition of Latin-American percussion being another way The Beatles often exploited their new-found access to four-track recording.”
