"Others the country take for choice/And hold the town in scorn/But she has listened to the voice/On city breezes borne" (Amy Levy)
Not my usual "thing" at all, but I did appreciate that. Good post.
Hello Mr CLooks like someone put a spell on your blog too...It keeps changing...Happy days
Loved it........it put a spell on ME :)Always something wonderful here Cuban. You are such a soulful person my friend........Blessings for your Sunday and........Steady OnReggie Girl
I didn't know this version - I loved it. Gilmour has such a distinctive sound, doesn't he - and I loved the piano, too. Thanks!
This is what sunday's are all about...smooth & jazzy. Love it.Saludos de la Florida.
bonito cambio de look!!
Great version of a timeless song. Mica has some voice. A nice treat.And, what can I say about one of my favorite artists, David Gilmour! Pink Floyd's "Shine on you crazy diamond" is, to me, one of the best songs of all times.
Many thanks to you all. It is indeed a very good cover of a classic and it has two of my favourite artists, David 'Shine On You Crazy Diamond' Gilmour (yes, every phto, I love his music, too :-D) and Mica Paris, one of the better and most underrated British soul singers ever.Greetings from London.
The Nina Simmone is my favorite version of this tune but Mica really works it!
Quite liked it! Thanks.
Ooooo...sultry! I loved this. And like your new "big" look over here in London, Mr. Cuban. :^)
Simpre puedo venir a este rinconsito con my cafesito.
Marrilyn manson tiene una versión tremenda de este tema.
It is not what we are used to with John Fogerty, but it is also great.Saludos,Al Godar
This is definitely a perfect choice for a lazy Sunday morning! I thought Nina Simone's version was pretty perfect but this is not bad...
You have the best taste in music and I think it would be amazing if somehow you could incorporate it into high schools where somehow they could hear these songs you pick and really get into the groove of it all. (I know groove shows how uncool I am.)Now this may be strange but I wonder if it is possible that I could have your home mailing address. If so could you put it on my blog and then I will reject the comment but I will have the address. If not, I totally understand.Love Renee xoxoxo
Mr. Cuban,Now you made me feel blue-zy!Thank you, dear Sir, for your kindness – you made me smile every time I see your name!!!Greetings from NYC
Hi there Mr. Cuban!First I would like to thank you for your visits. They are much appreciated and you know how I love to see 'Greetings from London'. It's like receiving a postcard.I actually saw Screaming Jay Hawkins perform this at a club in NYC where I was a DJ. Hard to beat the original, but I do like the sultry version.Catherine
good ol' david still has the chops!and mica... ah, my man.thank you so much.
Was a very nice song..Of course, my music is a little bit old fashioned..Did I hear a laugh from you? Anyway, was a nice video..
Many thanks to you all for your kind words. And no, there are no laughs from me, Rosebud, because we all have different tastes in music.Renne, if it's a bouquet you're planning to sned me, please, bear in mind that I love tulips :-).Garri, I saw Gilmour on BBC4 recently and the guy still rocks, man.Greetings from London.
Thanks for the song. I love your blog and I love those pics on the header. Makes me want to dance. Carla x
I am such a Nina Simone fan that I had to take a deep breath before watching this. It's a great cover, though, I have to admit.Thanks for expanding my horizons!
Excellent jazz, Cuban. Thanks for posting this.
