Along Came Jones is the 1965 debut album recorded by Tom Jones and included his massive hit single "It's Not Unusual". The album reached No 11. Some of the songs were covers and some were written especially for Jones like the Gordon Mills-penned "The Rose". In July 1965 Parrot Records (USA, Canada) issued an abridged (12 track) version of the album, titled It's Not Unusual. Side 1. "I've Got a Heart" (Gordon Mills, Les Reed) 2:33. It Takes a Worried Man" (Traditional; arranged by Gordon Mills) 2:40.

It's Not Unusual" is a song written by Les Reed and Gordon Mills, first recorded by a then-unknown Tom Jones, after having first been offered to Sandie Shaw. Jones recorded what was intended to be a demo for Shaw, but when she heard it she was so impressed with Jones's delivery that she declined the song and recommended that Jones release it himself. The record was the second Decca single Jones released, reaching number one in the UK Singles Chart in 1965

It's not unusual to go out at any time But when I see you out and about it's such a crime If you should ever want to be loved by anyone It's not unusual it happens every day No matter what you say. You find it happens all the time Love will never do, what you want it to Why can't this crazy love be mine?. It's not unusual, to be mad with anyone It's not unusual, to be sad with anyone But if I ever find that you've changed at anytime It's not unusual to find out that I'm in love with you Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh.

According to the it's Not Unusual Songfacts, this was written by the classical music arranger and conductor Les Reed along with Tom Jones' manager Gordon Mills. They wrote it for the British singer Sandie Shaw, but she turned it down. Tom Jones saw the song's potential, recorded it, and it became his first hit single. Ladies & Gentlemen This Is Tom Jones It's not unusual to be loved by anyone It's not unusual to have fun with anyone but when I see you hangin. iew full lyrics.
