“On My Own” one of Best Michael McDonald songs of all time
“On My Own,” Co-written by Burt Bacharach and Carole, honored as #2 of the 9 of the Best Michael McDonald songs of all time.
A beautiful duet, sung by Michael McDonald and Patti Labelle
was initially not intended to be a duet at all, but LaBelle decided to invite McDonald to help her turn the song into a duet, as she stated: “The song was sent to me and I did a version of it but somehow it just didn’t quite work. We were going over things I’d done and we talked about turning it into a duet. Someone asked, ‘If you could do it with anyone, who would you sing it with?’, and Michael was my first choice.” (Excerpt from Wikipedia…)
