Everyone of us music fans had recorded on tape, or just imagined, a compilation of his favourite songs ever. I think we all agree that these compilations can change with the changing of our mood, but there are some artists and some songs that are just essential, unavoidable. Tim Buckley
is one of these artists and Song To The Siren is his best song to me. This version of the song, in particular. Song To The Siren had been first recorded in 1971 on the album Starsailor, a work on which his music get close to avant-garde and free-jazz. On 1967 Tim had already performed the song on the Monkees' TV show, accompanied on his 12 strings guitar only. This bare, simple version exalts even more the touching beauty of the melody, of his amazing voice, and the poetry of the lyrics.
An absolutely unmissable clip, if you are not moved by this it means you have a cold stone instead of a heart!Tim Buckley - Song To The Siren
I have to say that is a little frustrating to see how such a small amount of people connecting and downloading from this site remember to leave a comment. Many comments report problems in downloading. I am sorry if the process is a little complicated, this is just because, since the beginning, I have always had to defend my blog from leechers and trolls. I have no problems in trying to offer some "technical assistance", but I would also like to know more of your opinions about the videos. The purpose of making a blog is interaction, share a passion with some people out there. Otherwise I think I'll soon end up feeling a lack of motivations...
