The Music Of Tom Jones

One of my favorite singers of all time is Tom Jones. The man has got a powerful voice. He's had so many songs that I love. I'm posting clips of some of my favorite tunes throughout the years. Some of these clips are older ones, while others are more modern. Which is your favorite?

She's A Lady:



What's New, Pussycat?



It's Not Unusual



Thunderball



I'll Never Fall In Love Again




Delilah



Sex Bomb



You'll Never Walk Alone Again



Kiss



P.S. My sister Stephanie has started a blog. It's called Chic Femme. She plans to cover everything from fashion to entertainment. The blog is fairly new, but she does have a few posts up so far. I hope you'll check it out. I know she would appreciate it. I would too. Please feel free to leave her some comments on any posts you like. Thanks.

Also don't forget to vote in my poll for your favorite member of the Rat Pack. The poll will close on late Tuesday. I'll reveal the most popular Rat Packer in my Wednesday post.

I love Tom Jones. He has some many songs that I adore. "What's New, Pussycat?" has always been one of my favorites.

Keith said...

Thanks Phoebe. I do love that one. My favorite is "She's A Lady," but I love so many others.

Heavenly Housewife said...

Great selection of clips. I'm going to check out your sister's site. Have a fabulous weekend!

Diana said...

Leah said...

It's not unusual and Kiss... but I love almost all of his songs. He's a total performer.

Steve Langton said...

I guess Delilah has to be my own fave. Very popular song over here.
Just got time to vote in your poll b4 work. Will check out your sisters blog a little later.

Etrapar said...

I love sex bomb, and you're sister blog, you shoul encourage her!!! ^.^
kisses

Protege said...

Ah yes, there is no one like Tom. I so enjoy my visits here, as you bring back a time in the past that appeals to me very much.
I love all the clips you post here, but I have to admit, I find the early compilations best by far. Nevertheless, it is admirable that Tom Jones has managed to keep up with the tides of time, both physically and musically.
Have a wonderful Friday.;)

Not sure which song I liked best for Tom Jones. I did check out Chic Femme, looks like a great blog! Have a nice weekend!!

JFK Jean said...

Tom Jones is definitely a cool dude. Like many kids, my introduction to him via Carlton Banks on 'Fresh Prince Of Bel-Air' doing 'It's Not Unusual' was a hilarious one. He has a lot of soul to him, maybe a white Otis Redding? haha

Keith said...

Hey Housewife. Thanks. Glad you enjoyed these clips. I appreciate you checking out my sister's blog.

Keith said...

Thanks Diana. Glad to see you're a fan of Tom.

Keith said...

Hey Leah. Thanks. That's how I am. I love all of his music.

Keith said...

Hey Steve. Thanks. I love Delilah. I appreciate you voting and checking out my sister's blog.

Cathy Voyage said...

Damn, he's a legend!

Keith said...

Hey Sonia. Thanks. I was thrilled when my sis told me she wanted to do a blog.

Keith said...

Hey Protege. Thanks. I'm glad to see you like Tom. I prefer his stuff from back in the day. I still think it's cool that he's been able to stick around while so many others fade away.

Keith said...

Hey Jim. Thanks. He has had a lot of cool tunes. I appreciate you checking out my sister's blog. Enjoy your weekend.

Keith said...

Hey JFK. Thanks. I did always love that on Fresh Prince. I think a lot of younger people first found out who he was through that. I have always thought he had some soul in him.

Keith said...

Hey Cathy. You are so right about that.

Wolf Boy said...

Tom is the man. Not sure what is my favorite. I do love "Sex Bomb."

insideratbjornborg said...

o wow, TJ has been around for a while. he was pretty handsome back then!

Keith said...

Hey Wolf. Sex Bomb is a good song. I love it.

Keith said...

Hey Insider. Tom had a way with the ladies back in the day.

Maggi said...

My favorite Jones tune is definitely "It's Not Unusual"!

Keith said...

Thanks Maggi. That is a cool tune.

Scott (gotankgo) said...

Enjoying the collection of Tom Jones clips. Good stuff!

Keith said...

Thanks Scott. I'm glad you enjoyed them. Cheers!

Erika said...

"She's A Lady" will always be one of my favorite Tom Jones songs - j'adore! Though I always think of Carlton from "The Fresh Prince of Bel-Air" when I hear the name Tom Jones - he was always dancing and singing to his music! :)

Off to check out Stephanie's blog right now! :)

mom & son said...

I love Tom Jones songs!

JamiSings said...

It's Not Unusual has always been my favorite, but there is something very addictive about Sexbomb, especially the Peppermint Disco mix.

Keith said...

Hey Erika. Thanks. I love that song. I think a lot of people will always think of Carlton. Thanks for checking out my sister's blog.

Keith said...

Hey Mom. Thanks. I hope you like my sister's blog.

Keith said...

Hey Jami. Thanks. I do really love Sex Bomb. I was actually humming it the other day.

I have to say my favorite is "She's a lady", (well I like many but of these ones) I like also "I'll never walk alone again"

Jessica Cangiano said...

Fantastic selection of clips, it's like a Reader's Digest condensed version of a Tom Jones concert :D Tricky to pick just one fave, but I'm leaning towards "What's new pussycat" - love that tune!

Wishing you an awesome weekend, Keith!
♥ Jessica

Keith said...

Hey Jessica. Glad you enjoyed it. There were so many other tunes I could have added as well. I did try to pick a nice selection. Hope you're having a wonderful weekend so far.

MJ said...

Coincidentally, I've been listening to a BBC Radio special on Tom.

And since we're talkin' Tom, may I toss my panties onto your stage?

Keith said...

Thanks Choo and Wana. Hope you're having great weekends. Cheers!

VP81955 said...

My favorite is probably "I'll Never Fall In Love Again," but he made so many fine records. Let me correct myself and say makes fine records, because he still tours, still releases new albums, doesn't rest on his laurels -- and he can work with younger acts without appearing ridiculous. The guy has a great range, both in his voice and in his material; I'd love to see Elvis Costello write a song for him.

Keith said...

Hey VP. Thanks so much for your comment. I appreciate it. It was nice hearing from you. You are so right about Tom. He has done so many cool songs. He still records great music. He holds his own with today's crowd.

Sabrina said...

cool!tom Jones is really good!
good selection!

Keith said...

Thanks Sabrina. Glad you enjoyed it. Cheers!

Dad.. said...

Have you heard the remix to Sex Bomb? Now THAT is a sweet jam!!

Keith said...

Hey Dad. Yeah, that is so awesome.
