YMMV / Ronnie Milsap

Go To

  • Covered Up: Many times:
    • "Am I Losing You" was a Top 10 hit for Jim Reeves... twice.
    • "(I'd Be) a Legend in My Time" was originally a Don Gibson song. Milsap's cover changes it from a waltz to 4/4 time.
    • "Too Late to Worry, Too Blue to Cry" is an Al Dexter cover.
    • "What a Difference You've Made in My Life" was released by Amy Grant at the same time.
    • Burt Bachrach's "Any Day Now" had been recorded by Chuck Jackson, Alan Price and Elvis Presley. Ronnie's version is the most famous.

    • "Don't You Ever Get Tired (Of Hurting Me)" had been recorded by Ray Price (both solo and as a duet with Willie Nelson), going to #11 both times. Ronnie's version was a #1.
    • "Since I Don't Have You" is a doo-wop standard originally by The Skyliners and later made famous by Don McLean.
    • "Snap Your Fingers" had been recorded many times, first by Joe Henderson.
    • Going the other way, Dottsy had a hit in 1977 with "(After Sweet Memories) Play Born to Lose Again)", which Milsap cut two years prior.
  • Sampled Up: "Lost in the Fifties Tonight" samples "In the Still of the Night", a 1956 doo-wop hit by the Five Satins.
  • Suspiciously Similar Song: "Back on My Mind Again" is a thinly-disguised musical rewrite of "Octopus's Garden" by The Beatles.

How well does it match the trope?
