Ellen Foley SONG INDEX part 1
Ellen often recorded other people's songs (she only released six of her own songs), but they were not 'just' cover versions. She often had songs written for her, or she would pick newly published songs and "make them her own". When criticised for doing too many covers, Ellen replied that the approach, the commitment and the understanding is more important than the actual writing of a song. To Ellen singing is similar to acting, and she believes in throwing herself fully into every performance and trying to bring out a song's character and feel.
This index details every song Ellen Foley has recorded or performed live during the 70s and 80s, including demos and songs from Jim Steinman's Pandora's Box project. The index does not cover her musicals or cabaret shows, nor does it include her most recent work with the Dirty Old Men.
