Your Song – Elton John -

Dear Students,
Não sei se vocês perceberam, mas a primeira questão da Recuperação Paralela foi construída com base nessa linda canção de Elton John e Bernie Taupin.

Gostaria de mostrar a vocês duas versões: uma com Elton John e outra que gosto muito, com Billy Paul. A versão que coloquei aqui é do Billy Paul no programa do Luciano Huck. Se quiserem procurar versões com o Billy novinho, é só procurar no You Tube.

Billy Paul!

Elton John and Ronan Keating! (mas a música é originalmente cantada por Elton John sozinho)

Digam-me a que gostam mais. Have a nice weekend!

Your Song

It’s a little bit funny this feeling inside

I’m not one of those who can easily hide

I don’t have much money but boy if I did

I’d buy a big house where we both could live

If I was a sculptor, but then again, no

Or a man who makes potions in a traveling show

I know it’s not much but it’s the best I can do

My gift is my song and this one’s for you

And you can tell everybody this is your song

It may be quite simple but now that it’s done

I hope you don’t mind

I hope you don’t mind that I put down in words

How wonderful life is while you’re in the world

I sat on the roof and kicked off the moss

Well a few of the verses well they’ve got me quite cross

But the sun’s been quite kind while I wrote this song

It’s for people like you that keep it turned on

So excuse me forgetting but these things I do

You see I’ve forgotten if they’re green or they’re blue

Anyway the thing is what I really mean

Yours are the sweetest eyes I’ve ever seen

Gostei, música bacana.
Prefiro Billy Paul canando essa música, a música cantada por Elton John fica mais penosa.

Legal, né, Bruno!
Eu também gosto muito da versão do Billy Paul, mas fico dividida.. :-) , pois adoro o Elton John!
See you tomorrow,
