Q: What’s behind the Paul SimonBette Midler feud?

A: The Divine Miss M. and Rhymin’ Simon fell out over one of his songs, “Gone At Last,’ which s h e

Audio: Buckets Of Rain ~ Bette Midler

Buckets Of Rain
(written by Bob Dylan) 

[Bette:] Ohh-oh, Ohh-oh, ah
Sing to me baby, baby.
Buckets, nuggets of rain.

[Bette & Bob:] Nuggets of rain,
nuggets of tears.
Got all the nuggets
comin’ out of my ears.
Nuggets of moonbeams
in my hand.
You got all the love,
honey baby, I can stand.

I been down, high like an oak.
I’ve seen pretty people
disappear like smoke.
Friends will arrive,
friends will disappear.
You want me,
honey baby, I’ll be here.

[Bette:] Oh-oh, I’ll be here.
Ooooooh.
Sing to me baby, baby, baby.
Buckets of rain. Read More

Lawrence Journal World
Women sparkle on new releases
February 21, 1976

International Women’s Year may be a memory, but the women of rock and roll are still making themselves heard, and loudly.

A spate of new albums by important women writers and singers has recently hit the stores, including new works by Phoebe Snow, Bette Midler and Joan Baez.

Neither Phoebe Snow nor Bette Midler has released albums since 1974. For Ms. Snow, whose first record was one of the finest of that year, the interim has seen a lawsuit over her recording contract, a shift to a new label, marriage and the birth of her first child. Read More

BetteBack 1975: What’s That Song?

Mister D: Of course the song below turned out to be “Gone At Last.” However, it never appeared as a single nor on her album. She was rudely surprised to find that Paul Simon had cut her vocals out and redid the song with Phoebe Snow. This led to a long-standing feud which came to an end during the recording of We Are The World in 1984 ~ Paul Simon’s duet with Bette later appeared as a bonus track demo on his CDStill Crazy After All These Years(?)
