One for C’est la vie ~ Emerson, Lake & Palmer


This is an old one. It’s by the musicians who go by the name of Emerson, Lake & Palmer. (Read about Emerson, Lake & Palmer)

Previously, I had posted about one of their songs called “Still… you turn me on”. This is another amazing track by them I’m not sure if most of you have heard this one. If not, just hit the play button.

Absolutely love the vocalist! What a voice!

Song: C’est la vie ~ Emerson, Lake & Palmer

Lyrics: 

C’est la vie

Have your leaves all turned to brown
Will you scatter them around you
C’est la vie.

Do you love
And then how am I to know
If you don’t let your love show for me
C’est la vie.

(Chorus) Oh, oh, c’est la vie.
Oh, oh, c’est la vie.
Who knows, who cares for me…
C’est la vie.

In the night
Do you light a lover’s fire
Do the ashes of desire for you remain.

Like the sea
There’s a love too deep to show
Took a storm before my love flowed for you
C’est la vie

(Chorus) Oh, oh, c’est la vie.
Oh, oh, c’est la vie.
Who knows, who cares for me…
C’est la vie.

Like a song
Out of tune and out of time
All I needed was a rhyme for you
C’est la vie.

Do you give
Do you live from day to day
Is there no song I can play for you
C’est la vie.

(Chorus) Oh, oh, c’est la vie.
Oh, oh, c’est la vie.
Who knows, who cares for me…
C’est la vie.

One for ‘Clothes of Sand’


A few days ago, someone had posted the link to this song on my Twitter timeline. I happened to check it out and loved the track. Amazing voice, lyrics and the music kept simple. So, I thought of sharing this song.

Song: Clothes of Sand ~ Nick Drake

Really liked these line:

“Can you now return to from where you came

 Try to burn your changing name 

Or with silver spoons and coloured light 

Will you worship moons in winter’s night.” 

 

I guess, good music just finds you. But are you listening enough?

 

Give it a listen!

One for the charm of simple music…


Happy Birthday ~ The Innocence Mission

Rain ~ The Innocence Mission


And I’ve done it yet again! Haven’t posted in a while but know what? I’ve been collecting songs and see what I bring in this time…

Last month, I came across this band called “The Innocence Mission” and felt the joy of music kept simple. This is for the lovers of pure / acoustic / blues.

How a song could be so simple and ever more appealing? I’m glad that they still make music like this. Glad but even more grateful.

Give it a listen…

One for the self guessing “Who am I?” moments…


Have you heard “The Samples”? Great music. I really liked this track. Beautifully penned lyrics and composed. Nice acoustic sound!

Give it a listen.

One for re-making the classics! (Ain’t no sunshine)


I was listening to Bill Withers’ original version of “Ain’t no sunshine” and came across many other nicely done renditions. It is indeed a huge task to match the beauty of the original composition but I really liked a few versions so thought I should share them here.

First one is by Joe Cocker. Listen & enjoy!

 Joe Cocker ~ Ain’t no shunshine

 

Another great version is the one done by Shaun Smith during “Britain’s got talent” auditions. What a voice!

Shaun Smith ~ Ain’t no shunshine

 

And yet another neat version.

Selah Sue & Ronny Mosuse ~ Ain’t no sunshine

 

Which one did you like best?
