I finally had the opportunity to upload to YouTube a clip with the song I wrote earlier this year as a wedding gift for my wife’s sister and her husband.
The song was beautifully composed by Liron Grossman a singer/songwriter.
And was performed at the wedding party as a surprise by Liron and the very talented Yoli Kesten-Harel.
This one i wrote in June of 2005. Strangely enough, I haven’t marked down the exact date of its writing even though I’ve started doing that long before.
I was reminded of this poem just the other day from speaking to a friend about being in Chicago and visiting its Jazz clubs.
I have to say that I have very fond memories of Chicago, it was a wonderful time and I found a really great city to experience and enjoy as well as meeting very interesting people while being there.
In my view if this is not the best cover ever made it most definitely comes close to it.
This is one of those covers that completely suppress the original song and takes into a whole new level.
Like most people i used to be a huge MJ fan, i had all of his cassettes (yes! cassettes!) and i would occasionally sin and try to do the moon walk in my room But Billie Jean was not one of my favorites, the lyrics were of course great but i never connected to its rhythm or its melody.
However listening to Mr Cook’s rendition – the power and energy he delivers his version of the song with is to me completely astonishing, its like a punch in the stomach only in a good way. The cover transforms the song into a very powerful, mysterious and grabbing musical event.
So Simply click Play and hear for yourself…
