I’ve mentioned my love of this version before, and had promised to share it; or had recommended it to some people, but I’m a pushy bitch sometimes, darlings, and so here I am posting this to ensure that you can hear it if you want.
I love how she uses the countermelody of the song as the piano part — that’s just the musical elitist in me gushing over the details that the great unwashed masses often miss out on — those that say “Yes, that’s very nice.” You know what I mean, darlings, you’re all writers. Don’t you hate it when you write something particularly clever — a certain twist of phrase or a brilliant metaphor, and someone reads it and says “I like it; it’s nice.”
I’m a professional appreciator, darlings, and I hope you are too. Now listen to the nice fucking song!
