I wish I had a river

Por indicação do Rogério, fui conferir o novo de Madeleine Peyroux, Half the Perfect World. Na mesma linha de Careless Love, o anterior, mas com a sensível diferença de ter um dueto com KD Lang em River, cover de Joni Mitchell. Evidente que, cantando com KD, qualquer voz desaparece.

A exemplo do álbum anterior, este também tem um cover de Leonard Cohen, desta vez, Blue Alert (no anterior era a sexy Dance Me To The End of Love), alguns standards como Smile e Everybody's Talking e composições originais, com aquele ar de cabaré enfumaçado.

Mas, no repeat, só River mesmo.

It's coming on christmas
They're cutting down trees
They're putting up reindeer
And singing songs of joy and peace
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

But it don't snow here
It stays pretty green
I'm going to make a lot of money
Then I'm going to quit this crazy scene

I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I made my baby cry

He tried hard to help me
You know, he put me at ease
And he loved me so naughty
Made me weak in the knees

Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on
I'm so hard to handle
I'm selfish and I'm sad

Now I've gone and lost the best baby
That I ever had
Oh I wish I had a river
I could skate away on

I wish I had a river so long
I would teach my feet to fly
Oh I wish I had a river
I made my baby say goodbye
