His baby boomer and senior fans will remember Joe Cocker's other hit singles, which include renditions of:

  • Billy Preston's You Are So Beautiful, which Cocker had a #5 U.S. hit single with in 1974.
  • The Beatle's With a Little Help from My Friends, which went to #1 in 1968 in both the U.S. and the U.K.
  • A 1982 duet with Jennifer Warnes for the movie An Officer and a Gentleman (1982), Up Where We Belong

Baby boomer Anita Hamilton has always been interested in the "real people" stories behind the characters that create and inhabit the world of music, books, movies, television shows, current events, history, etc. A lifelong love of research (ok, nosiness) and writing, combined with a loving and supportive family and 3 mini-dachshund minions, keeps her busy.
