REVIEWS
Average points: 4.81 (Reviews: 47)
*****
Gilbert O'Sullivans Flair für ohrwurmige Melodien kommt auch in diesem flott-flockigen Song über Sinn und Unsinn des Heiratsprozederes deutlich zum Ausdruck. Besonders kultig wirken aus heutiger Sicht die epochentypischen Orchestralsequenzen im zweiten Drittel des Stücks.
******
Zeitlos schöne Popnummer, die damals in Deutschland über ein enormes Radio-Airplay verfügte. Wie bei vielen O'Sullivan Nummern jener Zeit besticht auch "Matrimony" durch eine nette, eingängige Melodie und seinem manchmal etwas näselnden Gesang.
****
für mich eine der schwächeren nummern von GOS. sein 'gesamtwerk' enthält so viele schöne titel, dass es einem schwerfällt, nicht von diesem pop-künstler fasziniert zu sein. wenn auch sein outfit als irischer landjunge mit den überdimensionalen hosenträgern schon tierisch nach billigem kabaret-clown 'roch'.
****
Da kann ich mich urs2222 vollständig anschließen, zudem kein Lied für ledige Menschen!
****
Wirkt auf mich eher langweilig.
*****
▓ Een mooie ♪ klassieker van Gilbert O'Sullivan uit mei 1972 !!! Eén van de bekendere platen van Gilbert !!! Deze "Matrimony" stond 11 weken in de Nederlandse Top 40 van eind mei t/m begin augustus 1972 !!! Voormij nog 5 sterren waard !!!
*****
Mein favourite seiner Songs! #4 in NL, die Nummer macht einfach Spass - heute noch immer!

Nix da - da werden 6 Sterne gezückt - Spitzen-Klassiker von O'Sullivan
*****
Prachtig! Klassieker met saxofoons en een heerlijk 'niets-aan-de-hand-deuntje'.
*****
Vom 1971er Album 'Himself'. 1972 ein bescheidener Hit in D # 28. Mir gefällt der beschwingte Titel sehr gut.
*****
feel-good-Oldie
*****
Wunderschöne Single aus dem Jahr 1971.
****

****
Eher durchschnittlich.

gute 1, der konnte gar nix der verstaubte Kasper Gilly
*****
Sehr gute Komposition, merkwürdigerweise in Uk nicht als Single veröffentlicht. Dafür im Mai 72 für 8 Wochen in den deutschen Charts.
****
nett und charmant präsentierte Popnummer, welche 1972 1 Woche auf #1 in Norwegen stand (total 27 Wochen notiert)...

Gilbert O'Sullivan mit seinem charakteristischen Gute-Laune-Sound eben, hier aus 1971. Geradliniger Song, der durchaus Spaß machen kann.
******
Great

Gilbert hatte so etwas Besonderes in der Stimme.
Schöne Melodie, schöner Refrain.
******
einer der besten Songs von Gilbert O'Sullivan
*****
Gefällt mir wirklich gut!
*****
sympathische Nummer
******
Als Kind war ich entzückt von diesem Lied. Darum gebe ich 6 Punkte.
*****
Nog eentje uit de categorie "songs met zin voor humor". Maar ook hieruit blijkt de klasse van Gilbert O'Sullivan's werk. Aanstekelijk nummer.
*****
Blijft een leuke klassieker uit de 70's
*****
Spassiger Oldie
******
Fait partie de ma playlist - Maakt deel uit van mijn playlist
*****
Mag den Song, nette Melodie, nur diesen Zwischenpart ("I'm truly grateful for the little things in life...") halte ich nicht für sehr gelungen, trotzdem eine 5!

Komisch das der Song in UK oder Irland nicht platziert war, kann das sein das das dort keine Single war?
