Goodbye Blue Sky

Hello!

After Nuno‘s last post in this blog, and in the aftermath of the last few months of low posting frequency and lack of will to post, I am too putting away my blogging pen for the time being. This 7-friend project was really fun while it lasted, but now that we as a group lost the time to post because of our jobs, studies, and our lives in general, the fun is mostly gone. Maybe we’ll be back in the future, maybe not. For now, the almost 5500 views we’ve had from more than 80 countries and the 175 posts we’ve made sharing our views on music leave us with a sense of a job well done 🙂

In my last post I’ll show you an nice cover of an amazing Pink Floyd song by a 12-year-old Korean boy with a great talent. Goodbye Blue Sky!

Farewell!

The Band

American Civil warTo vary things a little, today I’ll post a song not from a band, but from the “The Band“.

Initially a support group of several singers, especially Bob Dylan, they eventually became a band and came out with that name precisely for being “the band” of several frontmen.

I got to know this song I’m posting – The Night They Drove Old Dixie Down – from Joan Baez, and although I have been addicted to her version for a while, and although it was the most successful version, and although I am a fairly good fan of Joan Baez, I think the best version of the song is a live version from “The Band“.

I’ll leave you here both the original and Joan’s cover, but first the first place goes to the version below 😉

Have a nice weekend!

Is there anything more beautiful than a lousy melody sang out of tune by the band’s drummer (who even yawns while singing the song)? I think not. And I’m pretty sure you think the same!

So here’s a masterpiece from Green Day‘s Tré Cool to make you enjoy the weekend:
