Wrapping up my weekly music video series from around the world, we traveled from France to Spain to Iceland and now we’re back in the good old U.S. of A. I found this looking for different versions of the Patience & Prudence song “Tonight, You Belong to Me”. It doesn’t get much different than this. It’s short and sweet, especially because of Goldie…
One thing people may not know is Björk has been belting out incredible songs since her childhood. As a 12 year-old, she released her first and self-titled album filled with songs from Stevie Wonder, Edgar Wright and this Beatles classic. Her tiny voice singing this version of Fool on the Hill really does the song justice. The fact that she’s translated it makes us listen to the harmony and focus less on the message. Think Paul would agree?
If you have the time, explore her mid-70’s songs on YouTube (I Love to Love is also really good).
Have a great Saturday!
Joan (pronounced Juan) Manuel Serrat is a singer/songwriter from Spain that as a child I would lump in with other music in Spanish assuming it all came from Mexico. When I got older not only did I learn that it was in reality a whole different style of music but that songs can tell stories with their own form of poetry. This is the first song of his that I ever heard. Look him up.
For the rest of the month I’ll be posting music videos from around the world on Saturdays. We’re starting off with one of my favorite French songs “La Complainte De La Butte” as performed by Marcel Mouloudji. Enjoy!
