Oh, come on! It’s Conway Twitty again. But, of course, we’re not getting tired listening to him, are we? Never!
Twitty had this charisma that is missing in most men, especially in singing. He could lure every woman with his husky and deep yet sweet and charming voice. And with his cover of Dr. Hook’s “When You’re In Love With a Beautiful Woman,” who couldn’t resist his charm? Well, hands down to this man; he’s just every woman’s dream.
Let me tell you more about this song when he covered it exactly 28 years now.
The song, and then some…
A popular single by the American band, Dr. Hook, “When You’re In Love With a Beautiful Woman” was recorded at Muscle Shoals Sound Studio, Alabama.
Written by Even Stevens and produced by Ron Haffkine, the song was pitched in the studio bathroom. “When You’re In Love With a Beautiful Woman” first appeared on the band’s 1978 album Pleasure and Pain.
Riding the disco wave in 1979, it belatedly became an international hit, reaching number six on the Billboard Hot 100 singles chart in the USA. Consequently, it did even better in the UK where it spent three weeks at number one in the UK Singles Chart in November 1979. The song was subsequently added to the band’s 1979 album Sometimes You Win. It features background vocals by three female singers.
Furthermore, the song was covered by country music artist Conway Twitty in 1990 on his album Crazy in Love.
Dr. Hook’s Original Version
Curious about the original version? Well, Dr. Hook is undoubted as equally talented as Conway Twitty. This original version of “When You’re In Love With a Beautiful Woman” was more of rock and country pop in genre. Undeniably, Dr. Hook rocked this song and really emphasized that it’s certainly difficult to fall in love with a beautiful woman because of its possible potent effects.
The song gives some reasons and possibilities on why it is hard to be in love with a beautiful woman. Reasons such as everybody liking and loving her, and might end up, taking her home. In addition, the narrator in the song confesses that he has been fooled before that is why he’s being so careful now. He finally closes the song warning other men that if they’d fall in love with a beautiful woman, they’d better watch her eyes.
Watch and listen to Dr. Hook’s original version of the song.
Twitty’s version, on the other hand, was obviously more of a country touch. He really kept it real and country, and I think it was fabulously awesome. Twitty again channeled his “leading man” charm in this tune, and who wouldn’t be attracted to him? Every line of the song was sung well as if it were Twitty’s own. Playing with the notes and melody is just simply his thing. Conway Twitty’s simply the best! With that, listen to his cover of the song below.
