    A PLACE IN THE SUN gospel like lyrics perhaps?

    Would you consider A PLACE IN THE SUN to be somewhat gospel. I always definitely considered the Four Tops version to be quite gospel.

    Yes, I would. A gospel-tinged, civil rights era tune alongside "A Change is Gonna Come".

    You know, I had never thought of it in that way, but now you guys mention it, yeah. A great song, anyway.

    There's some flavor, but the pot is missing something.

    This failed attempt at inserting the video won't go away by deleting. Sorry.

    The Four Tops really brought the song home for me. Thank you Nabob

    Never knew the Young Rascals covered it till I saw on YouTube. It DEFINITELY has gospel flair.

    As a kid, I remember several of these songs being sung in church in the 60s by youth choirs etc. These songs were also sung by the Civil Rights workers/activists around the country. We do not hear these songs anymore. Not even "Michael Row Your Boat Ashore".

    I always found it to be inspirational....first heard it as the flip of I'm Gonna Make You Love Me 45.....Paul Williams just nails it down and kills it....Paul was an excellent singer. Even with DR who had a much lighter sound as a duet partner....
