and i'd still be on my feet

This James Blake cover is truly truly one of the most beautiful things I've heard in a long time. I cried when I heard it for the first time yesterday. Granted I was feeling pretty emotional anyway, but still I want to get across HOW GREAT THIS COVER IS. Usually I'm skeptical about songs I love being covered, and I love the Joni Mitchell original, but James, you really nailed it. Mannn.


I still haven't got around to listening to his album yet - I'm too broke to buy it, for a start.... But I've heard great things, so I really hope I like it as much as I have everything I've heard so far.

(not just a pretty voice)

  1. Geooooorgiiie you cried? Did you know his song 'Wilhem Scream' is actually a cover of his DAD'S song? How cool is that? Man, and I thought my dad was pretty cool.

That post wasn't even headed in your direction AT ALL, jsyk, because for a person who lives across the world that I don't even know (blogger friends are too funny) you're like sooo nice. So yeah when I posted that I was like "aghh I really hope no one reads this ahgggg". Tee hee. I'm keeping it anyway, what the hell.
