Reach Out For Me

Recommended Posts

love this song but which is the best version? Each one has their merits but I have to give my vote to the Roy Hamilton version. What do you think?

Lou Johnson Lou.mp3

Roy Hamilton Roy.mp3

Dionne Warwick Dionne.mp3

The 3 versions listed are all great imo, but have gone for Dionne's for sentimental reasons. A particular moment in my life when it came out. When I hear it I still get tears in my eyes. Sentimental old fool.

How many other versions of this great song are there? I can think of Willie Tee, Nancy Wilson, but I know there are others. Help please.

I agree with you, the Roy Hamilton version is the best one without a doubt!

When you go through a day

And the things that people say

They make you feel so small

They make you feel that

Your heart will just never stop aching

And when you just can't accept the abuse you are taking

Darlin' reach out for me

Don't you worry, I'll see you through

You just have to reach out for me

I'll be there and I'll comfort you

Oh yes, I will

Comfort you and love you

Oh how I'm gonna love you

When good friends prove untrue

And the things they do to you

They make you feel so bad

They make you feel that

You haven't a reason for living

So when you feel you

Could throw in the towel and just give in

Darlin' reach out for me

Don't you worry, I'll see you through

You just have to reach out for me

I'll be there and I'll comfort you

Oh yes, I will

Comfort you and love you

Oh how I'm gonna love you

There are other soul versions by Universal Mind, Jerry Butler, Michael Henderson, Nancy Wilson and Lynn Collins.

...and numerous pop versions (which I haven't heard) including Olivia Newton-John. Ask Pete Smith about that one.

Paul Mooney
