mousetail: Sleeping mouse with a pink box (old mail)
Thank you [livejournal.com profile] sylviabarrett - for reminding me about this great artist of my youth! (Yeah, being 30 I can say this now ;-p ). Not that he isn't great any more, I just kind of fallen out of listening to his work. But now, after a reminder from her, I have dug up my dusty old favorites - "Dance Me to the End of Love", and, even more so, "The Future":



And this one - this one I didn't even know was his, enjoying it in Ritchie Blackmore's cover - Leaving Green Sleeves:

"Alas, my love, you did me wrong,
to cast me out discourteously,
for I have loved you so long,
delighting in your very company"...

No wonder, he was born the same year as my grandmother (and on the day of my anniversary), and everybody and their brother covered him... I know Johnny Cash and Guns'n'Roses did. So, I got his two-disk Best Of on Amazon now and can't wait for it to get here!
