Miley Cyrus – “Lilac Wine”

Lilac Wine” is a song written and composed by James Shelton in 1950 and interpreted since by a number of artists such as Nina Simone or Jeff Buckley.

Lilac Wine

Jeff Buckley

I lost myself on a cool damp night
I gave myself in that misty light
Was hypnotized by a strange delight
Under a lilac tree

I made wine from the lilac tree
Put my heart in its recipe
It makes me see what I want to see
And be what I want to be

When I think more than I want to think
I do things I never should do
I drink much more that I ought to drink
Because it brings me back you

Lilac wine is sweet and heady, like my love
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, like my love
Listen to me, I cannot see clearly
Isn’t that she, coming to me nearly here?

Lilac wine is sweet and heady where’s my love?
Lilac wine, I feel unsteady, where’s my love?
Listen to me, why is everything so hazy?
Isn’t that she, or am I just going crazy, dear?

Lilac wine, I feel unready for my love
Feel unready for my love

Imelda May – Should’ve Been You

Should’ve Been You

Imelda May

I could tell you all the things I do for you
But it’s no surprise and you just roll your eyes and say
“Here we go again
She’s gonna moan again”

I should spare your love, just a thing or two
But you don’t disguise it when I’m just white noise
And it’s done before it begins
‘Cause your temper’s getting thin

But there’s just one thing that I wanna know
Just one little thing before I go
Before I go

It’s who takes care of me?
Tell me, who takes care of me?
Should’ve been you
Should’ve been you

Do you realize, no, you never will
‘Cause your head’s held high and you got your pride
I got a little of mine still
Yeah, the bit you couldn’t kill

I’ll never blame you and I always will
I can’t explain it but it hurts like hell
And I’m feeling so alone
Yeah, I’m lonely to the bone

But there’s just one thing that I wanna know
Just one little thing before I go
Before I go

It’s who takes care of me?
Tell me, who takes care of me?
Should’ve been you, oh!
Should’ve been you, oh!

And I’m angry
And I’m sad
I’m the best thing that you ever had
All I wanted was your touch
But you told me what I wanted was just too much

Oh, who takes care of me?
Tell me, who takes care of me?
Should’ve been you, oh!
Should’ve been you
It should’ve been you
Should’ve been you

Peter Gabriel & Sinead O’Connor – Don’t Give Up, Chile 1990

Ok. Let me explain what happend: Vinnie Colaiuta is playing the right rhythm, but he’s putting accents too loud in order to help the keyboard player to feel the 6/8 compass over the 4/4 secuence of harmony. Then, the keyboard player, played the chords out of time (not out of tune). Sting did not knew what to do neither, it seems that those guys learned the song like 15 minutes before playing it. At the end, Sting finally catches the right scale, which all of us can hear a well played bass (even with slaps). Gabriel is used to play this song in a full 6/8 time, with a higher pitch, and only a bass drum playing every last 5 and 6th beats of the 6/8 compass, which actually helps a lot to him to sing it properly. That’s what happend. Pure Confusion. Cheers to everyone, and you’re all right… THIS SOUNDED SOOOOO AWFUL… which prooves that you can be the best player in the world, but if you do not do your homework, you will sound like shit!
