What no one really knows is, I'm a talented singer.
To be honest, listening to me when I sing is an adventure. A squeaky door sounds much better.
But I love music. I suppose you are like me that you guys hear music, but do not listen. But there are many moments in my life when I really listen to music. Sometimes it happens that a song touches me for some reason. It is possible that I have even heard the song several times before.
Other songs are important to me because I have a direct connection to them. I associate these with a special experience or emotion.
Does it happen occasionally that you like a cover more than the original?
All these songs have a significance for me.
I admit I like the cover versions by Gary Jules and Adam Lambert much more than the original.
I've chosen this video, because Adam performed powerful and emotional.
The original by Tears For Fears
The Sound of Silence
Once again the cover is the better one for me. It has more power, but it's still emotional.
Ten thousand people, maybe more
People talking without speaking
People hearing without listening
Those lines were written by Paul Simon in 1963/64. Are those lines still valid?
Here's the original by Simon and Garfunkel
You Raise Me Up
I wasn't aware that's a song by Secret Garden.
Josh Groban's cover was the version I knew as the original.
How often did you guys listen to Hallelujah?
Jeff Buckley touched my heart.
RIP Jeff Buckley
The next song will always be remembered in connection with one of the embarrassing moments. Better do not ask why.
