KAYE STEVENS Has Died

So sorry to hear that! I once had a recording of her singing a song about Sodom and Gomorrah to the tune of "O Solo Mio." It went something like this:

 

"There's no Gomorrah, the town has flown;

And where is Sodom, address unknown...

Their morals were far from good;

In fact they did things, they never should.

 

They went in swimmin', in the nude with wimmin;

spent 3 or 4 g's, on their nightly ****;

they held debauches, on brocaded couches;

with wine and song they vanished long ago.

 

RIP, Kaye.

"O Sole Mio" (sp) was also the basis for a hit song by Elvis:

 

It's now or never,

come hold me tight

Kiss me my darling,

be mine tonight

Tomorrow will be too late,

it's now or never

My love won't wait.

 

When I first saw you

with your smile so tender

My heart was captured,

my soul surrendered

I'd spend a lifetime

waiting for the right time

Now that your near

the time is here at last.

 

It's now or never,

come hold me tight

Kiss me my darling,

be mine tonight

Tomorrow will be too late,

it's now or never

My love won't wait.

 

Just like a willow,

we would cry an ocean

If we lost true love

and sweet devotion

Your lips excite me,

let your arms invite me

For who knows when

we'll meet again this way

 

It's now or never,

come hold me tight

Kiss me my darling,

be mine tonight

Tomorrow will be too late,

it's now or never

My love won't wait.

 

Interestingly, years ago in the U.K., singer Gary Curtis recorded a duet with Christopher Lee (the music video is fantastic!), with Lee and his fantastic opera voice beginning with O Sole Mio, then Curtis comes in with It's Now Or Never, then Lee picks up those lyrics, then the two come together as a duet. GREAT if you've never seen it!
