Ken Boothe – Everything I Own

Most people mistake this classic as a song about romantic love, but it’s actually about the relationship between father and son. ┬áThis Ken Boothe cover topped the UK charts for 3 weeks in 1974; the original was by a band called Bread in 1972 and held 5th spot on the Billboard 100 in 1972.

 

David Gates wrote this very touching tribute to his father after his passing.  The original recording is below, but this is one of the rare cases where I prefer the cover to the original.
