ENTERTAINMENT: Marc Cohn, do you know ‘Feelings’?

  Marc Cohn, who plays tonight at Green Valley Ranch, is known primarily for his 1991 hit “Walking in Memphis.” For whatever reason, the song is really popular in Las Vegas these days. Tom Jones has been covering it for a couple of years, and now it’s part of Cher’s new opus at the Colosseum at Caesars Palace. It’s the only place in the show where she wears jeans.
 Cohn survived being shot in the head a few years ago — really — so we think he can withstand his signature song becoming a Vegas standard.
  I can think of a few others who have tottered and sometimes even crashed into Bill Murray Lounge Lizard territory on the Strip. For a very long time, the most mistreated and abused song was Bob Seger’s “Old Time Rock & Roll.”
 That eventually was pushed out by the Carlos Santana-Rob Thomas hit “Smooth.”
  For topless shows, of course, it was the Joe Cocker version of “You Can Leave Your Hat On.”
  A less obvious candidate is a ubiquitous instrumental which, for a good decade, was legally mandated to be part of any revue or magic show, topless or otherwise, which featured any form of choreographed dancing: “Oh Yeah” by Yello.
