RIVER is my word this week for my ABC Wednesday post.
This was an easy one as one of these songs is one of my favourites.
River Deep Mountain High
Is a 1966 single by Ike and Tina Turner. It was written and produced by Phil Spector and became one of Tina Turner's signature songs. In 1999 it was inducted in the Grammy Hall of Fame.
Several artists have released this song - Jimmy Barnes, Neil Diamond, Annie Lenox. Celine Dion sung this one in several of her live shows.
It's one of my favourite songs.
I thought of posting Tina Turner's version but I like this version by Glee.

Rivers of Babylon
Was written and recorded by Brent Dowe and Trevor McNaughton of the Jamaican reggae group The Melodiansin in 1970 but was popularised in Europe in 1978 by Boney M.
The song is based on the Biblical hymn Psalm 137:1-4 and also has words from Psalm 19:14.
It's one of my favourite Boney M numbers.
