I couldn’t, so besides the original -

Paul Simon – 50 ways to leave your lover

 

there are two more covers I enjoyed:

Tok Tok Tok’s

 

 

Pink Turtle’s

 

 

and since I love their covers, here’s another one:

Walk On The Wild Side (Lou Reed / David Bowie)

 

 

And my latest candy before we change white for green is:

Chinese Man – Artichaut

Fish – A gentleman’s excuse me


Do you still keep paper flowers

In the bottom-drawer with your Belgian lace

Taking them out every year

To watch the colors fade away

Do you still believe in fairy tales

In battlements of shining castles

Safe from the dragons

That lie beneath the hill

Are you still a Russian princess

Rescued by a gypsy-dancer

To anyone who’ll listen

Is that a story you still tell

You live a life of fantasy

Your diary romantic fiction

Can’t you see it’s hard for me

Can you see what I’m trying to say

It’s a gentleman’s excuse me

So I’ll take one step to the side

Can you get it inside your head

I’m tired of dancing

For every one step forward

I’m taking two steps back

Can you get it inside your head

I’m tired of dancing

I know you still like old-fashioned waltzes

Your reflection in the mirror that you flirt with

As you glide across the floor

But if I told you, the music’s over

Would you want to hear

That your dance card, is empty

That there’s no-one really there

Do you still believe in Santa Claus

There’s a millionaire looking for your front door

With the key to a life

That you’d never understand

And all I have to offer

Is the love I have, it’s freely given

You’ll see it’s value

When you see what I’m trying to say

It’s a gentleman’s excuse me

So I’ll take one step to the side

Can you get it inside your head

I’m tired of dancing

For every one step forward

I’m taking two steps back

Can you get it inside your head

That for this one step forward

There’s no turning back

Can you get in inside your head

I’m tired of dancing

We’re Finished Dancing

C’Était L’Hiver

Elle disait “j’ai déjà trop marché
Mon coeur est déjà trop lourd de secrets
Trop lourd de peines”

Elle disait “Je ne continue plus
Ce qui m’attends je l’ai déjà vécu
C’est plus la peine”

Elle disait que vivre était cruel
Elle ne croyait plus au soleil
Ni aux silences des églises
Meme mes sourires lui faisaient peur
C’était l’hiver dans le fond de son coeur

Elle disait que vivre était cruel
Elle ne croyait plus au soleil
Ni aux silences des églises
Meme mes sourires lui faisaient peur
C’était l’hiver dans le fond de son coeur

Meme le vent n’a jamais été plus froid
La pluie plus violente que ce soir là
Le soir de ses vingt ans
Le soir où elle a éteint le feu
Derrière la facade de ses yeux
Dans un éclair blanc

Elle a sûrement rejoint le ciel
Elle brille à coté du soleil
Comme les nouvelles églises
Mais si depuis ce soir là je pleure
C’est qu’il fait froid dans le fond de mon coeur

Elle a sûrement rejoint le ciel
Elle brille à coté du soleil
Comme les nouvelles églises
Meme si depuis ce soir là je pleure
C’est qu’il fait froid dans le fond de mon coeur.

This is for you, my personal Majesty, with love, because I miss everything about you and today is 24 – 2 and 4 like your favorite numbers, so here it is:



The Cure – There is no if …Remember the first time I told you I love you -
It was raining hard and you never heard -
You sneezed! and I had to say it over
“I said I love you” I said… you didn’t say a word
Just held your hands to my shining eyes
And I watched as the rain ran through your fingers
Held your hands to my shining eyes and smiled as you kissed me…

“if you die” you said “so do i” you said…
And it starts the day you make the sign
“tell me I’m forever yours and you’re forever mine
Forever mine… “

“if you die” you said “so do i” you said…
And it starts the day you cross that line
“swear I will always be yours and you’ll always be mine
You’ll always be mine
Always be mine… “

Remember the last time I told you I love you -
It was warm and safe in our perfect world -
You yawned and I had to say it over
“I said I love you” I said… you didn’t say a word
Just held your hands to your shining eyes
And I watched as the tears ran through your fingers
Held your hands to your shining eyes and cried…

“if you die” you said “so do i” you said…
But it ends the day you see how it is
There is no always forever… just this…
Just this…

“if you die” you said “so do i” you said
But it ends the day you understand
There is no if… just and

There is no if… just and

There is no if…

when some salty dew covered my face (finally). I learned my lessons – there is no spoon, no “forever”, just a constant “maybe”; and between me and the world the shifting waves of moods, emotions, thoughts, illusions, words and music through which sometimes I float, other times I drown in.

Happiness is a lucky accident. Are you feeling particularly lucky today?

Tom McRae – Karaoke Soul



Wolfmother – New Moon Rising


Ghost Vs. Sanne – Nobody’s Perfect


Finley Quaye – Supreme I Preme


thebrooke – Little Red Riding Hood (Sam The Sham & The Pharoahs cover)


The Twilight Singers – The Lure Would Prove Too Much


Salsedo – Mon Amour


Gutter Twins – Front Street


Tom McRae – My Vampire Heart



Darling I’m lost
Adrift in the dark
I’m clutching your words
To my vampire heart once more
So let in the light
Turn me to dust
If it don’t end in Bloodshed dear
It’s probably not love

 

Here we are
In the darkest place
My reflection
Shows only your face

Something is found
Something is lost
Went looking for clues
On the streets of old New York
And I spilled someone’s blood
I broke someone’s heart again
Someone you know
You’re looking at him my friend

And the people in our lives
We all leave behind
Leave behind

Here we are
In the darkest place
To keep from forgetting
I picture your face
And I wonder
While we count the cost
Which is sweeter
Love or it’s loss

So I curse you
My vampire heart
For letting me love you
Love you
For letting me love you
From the start
