" HUGH'S CHRISTMAS KNOCKOUT " - ROUND 1 Welcome to Round 1 of my Christmas Knockout Contest 2015 As mentioned in the SIGN UP thread, you have been put into pairings, drawn at random (from an old black plastic cup, which I have used for this purpose for many years now lol!). The idea is to sing better than your opponent, the better singer advances. Opponents are listed together on the draw sheet below. We will be judging on pitch, mixing, timing, clarity and overall delivery of the song.

" THE FRANKIE AND JOHNNIE SONG " CONTEST :) You Gave Me a Mountain From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia "You Gave Me a Mountain" Single by Frankie Laine from the album You Gave Me a Mountain Released 1969 Writer(s) Marty Robbins Producer(s) Jimmy Bowen "You Gave Me a Mountain" (sometimes credited as "Lord, You Gave Me a Mountain") is a song written by country singer-songwriter Marty Robbins during the 1960s. It has been recorded by many artists, including Robbins himself, but the highest-charting version of the song was by Frankie Laine in 1969. This version was included on Laine's album of the same name. History In Laine's autobiography That Lucky Old Son, he stated that "Marty Robbins once told me that he'd been trying to bring 'You Gave Me a Mountain' to my attention for several years before he finally succeeded in November 1968. I wish he'd been quicker about it. There were many times in the mid-60s when I longed for a song of its quality." The lyrics to the song detail a series of challenges that the singer has endured in his life, including the death of his mother while giving birth to him, a time spent in prison "for something that I never done" and the singer's wife taking their child and leaving. He describes these setbacks as hills that he has scaled in the past, but then states that "this time, Lord, you gave me a mountain / A mountain you know I may never climb". The original third line of Robbins' song mentioned that he was "despised and disliked from my father", but Laine requested that this line be changed to "deprived of the love of my father" when he recorded his version, since Laine's father had died shortly before the recording took place.
