Tom Jones and Jessie J revive a classic

You’ve Lost That Lovin’ Feelin’ never really goes away: The Righteous Brothers’ Phil Spector-produced 1964 original remains a classic of longing and passion, a standard against which all subsequent pop duets must be measured. Tom Jones and Jessie J revived the song Sunday on the Grammys, and their studio version boasts lavish production inspired by, but not enslaved to, the original, with a sumptuous string arrangement acting as the record’s third star. At 74, Jones brings a dramatic and direct earnestness to his performance that Jessie J matches at every step.

  1. Dear Mr. JONES
    My name is Lisa Angharad. I am a Welsh Woman born in Caerphilly living in Berlin and a singer with a golden voice. My life dream would be to stand on a stage with you and sing Calon Lan. Can I send you some of my recordings/ performance video that you may consider inviting me to join you for one piece when the Tower of Song shifts you to Berlin? I am not in the least bit intimidated by the idea and would be so very honored to hear word back

  2. Hey Tom,
    You are not just an artist you are a legend
    You love to sing and always are outstanding. I don’t think today’s generation knows who you really are.
    I’m planning a short film where I will be
    Playing you from 1969 which is close to impossible, but as a trained ny actor I
    Think I might knock it out of the park.
    Maybe it will get some visabillity and wake this generation up.
    My email is lorusso333@gmail.com
    If you care to ask any question or offer
    advice.
    Warm regards
    Vince.
    Ps.
    You changed the world for the better
    Tom.
