Luca Giovacchini and Emma Morton – midnight acoustic
Let’s be honest, most of the stuff on youtube is pretty boring but sometimes just out of the blue pops up a real gem from the many hundreds and thousands of mediocre shaky videos about cats, babies and people having bike, skate board and car accidents on the site.
Something that stops you in your tracks and makes you say “Wow!”
This morning was one of the those moments when an email arrived with an address on youtube of a new video from two local musicians – Luca Giovacchini and Emma Morton from the band Emma e gli Aristodemos.
This time they are playing on their own and Italian swing from the 50’s has nothing to do with this number.
Ladies and Gentlemen, sit back and enjoy six minutes and forty two seconds of sheer unadulterated class as they perform an acoustic version of Time by Tom Waits.
Time – Tom Waits Cover by Luca Giovacchini and Emma Morton
Well, things are pretty lousy for a calendar girl
The boys just dive right off the cars
And splash into the street
And when she’s on a roll she pulls a razor
From her boot and a thousand
Pigeons fall around her feet
So put a candle in the window
And a kiss upon his lips
Till the dish outside the window fills with rain
Just like a stranger with the weeds in your heart
And play the fiddler off till i come back again
