REVIEWS
Average points: 3.67 (Reviews: 9)
***
Nu komt "de kat" op de koord.... Jarenlang gezwegen, en nu is hij er met een cover van een goede song. 3,5*
****
▒ Nette cover van: "Edgar Winter's White Trash" (1971) door de nu inmiddels 66 jarige Britse zanger en songschrijver: "Stephen Demetre Georgiou", alias: "Cat Stevens", alias: "Yusuf Islam", uit de nazomer van 2014 !!! Maar het origineel is een ster beter ☺!!!
***
Hoe voeg je iets toe aan zo'n goed nummer als dit origineel? Het simpele antwoord is helaas dat dat onmogelijk is, deze versie is 'degelijk gedaan' (en daarmee beter dan veel andere covers) maar zelfs dat schiet wat tekort in vergelijking.
***
mittelmässige Pianonummer…kenne ich im Original nicht, werde das aber nachholen, abgerundete 3.5…
***
Überzeugt mich nicht, zu langatmig.
****
Nice track.
*****
Berührende Piano-Ballade vom Altmeister Cat Stevens alias Yusuf. Aber der Text von Edgar Winter enthält doch einige hübsche Wortspiele, die einen näheren Blick lohnen.

You know I've heard it said there's beauty in distortion
By some people who've withdrawn to find their heads
Now they say that there is humor in misfortune
You know I wonder if they'll laugh when I am dead

Why am I fighting to live if I 'm just living to fight?
Why am I trying to see when there ain't nothing in sight?
Why am I trying to give when no one gives me a try?
Why am I dying to live if I'm just living to die?

Hey, you know some people say that values are subjective,
But they're just speaking words that someone else has said.
And so they live and fight and kill with no objective
Sometimes it's hard to tell the living from the dead

Why am I fighting to live if I 'm just living to fight?
Why am I trying to see when there ain't nothing in sight?
Why am I trying to give when no one gives me a try?
Why am I dying to live if I'm just living to die?

Yeah, you know I used to weave my words into confusion
And so I hope you'll understand me when I 'm through
You know I used to live my life as an illusion,
But reality will make my dreams come true

So I'll keep fighting to live till there's no reason to fight
And I'll keep trying to see until the end is in sight
You know I'm trying to give so see'mon give me a try
You know I'm dying to live until I'm ready
'til I'm ready
'til I'm ready
'til I'm ready to die

Meine Güte, das gefällt mir. Sehr.
*****
da werden ein paar ganz existenzielle Fragen aufgeworfen. auch musikalisch finde ich das ein ziemlich gelungenes Lied. gewohnte Yusuf-Qualität, aber da ist die Latte halt wirklich sehr hoch. gute 5*
***
...wenns denn seine Worte wären! - ich mochte seine Stimme noch nie...
