Helen Espinoa’s sister, Lorrie (dlrands) who is hosting Sunday Song lyric for her said : our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post your favorite cover song.
So I put on my thinking cap and came up with this song originally the Rolling Stones in fact written my Jagger and Richards under the pen names of Nanker and Pledge. The song is, As tears go by.
Now the cover and more well known version is by Marianne Faithful one time girlfriend of Mick Jagger. She was a singer and also an actress
Her version as a young woman is so sweet and pure, sweeter and purer than her life and very profectic.
Here she is singing as a much older woman at Stockholm Music and Arts August 3rd 2012 the voice no longer pure and sweet, is husky, harsh and full of a life lived to excess.
My favourite of the three. . hard to say of the two covers even harder but I think each has it’s own merits! Happy Sunday everyone 💝
