“You’ve tried everything but you won’t give up.”

“What You Won’t Do For Love” by Bobby Caldwell | Another one with a pretty good horn section – but, yeah, this probably is one lone trumpet. This is another one of those songs I grew up with but never quite knew who did it – until last week, when I caught it in the car and decided to, as always, grab the lyrics and Google them. Bobby Caldwell’s unexpected hit spawned a bunch of covers, though – Go West’s version might also be overplayed here, and for a moment, I thought it was this version I heard in the car – but an interesting, if not a bit disappointing, cover is from Jessie Ware, and only because they dispensed of the trumpet. I know it doesn’t really fit her sophistipop sound, but still. You do not mess with a distinctive sound.
