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 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?

Dedicated to Sandy Denny…Nothing More ~ Fotheringay


So let me begin with this beautiful song ~ ‘Nothing More’ by Fotheringay.

The most interesting aspect about this song has to be the vocalist – Sandy Denny. What a voice!  

The world lost her at a very tender age of 31. Her death was caused by an accident and that’s definitely a great loss for the world of music.

Nevertheless, her music lives forever…
