un cuvant face istorie…muzicala

cantecul asta are o istorie peste care am dat din intamplare. a fost oferit initial lui Jack Webb, primul sot al Juliei London, regizor,  spre a fi “inaintat” Ellei Fitzgerald. Numai ca, datorita unui cuvant (engl.) “plebeian“, cantecul a fost respins. Compozitorul Arthur Hamilton a oferit cantecul direct Juliei, de altfel fosta colega de scoala, care a acceptat sa-l cante (trecand oarecum peste opinia sotului). Si iata cum “cry me a river” a ramas in istoria muzicala :)

Now you say you’re lonely
You cry the long night through
Well, you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you

Now you say you’re sorry
For being so untrue
Well, you can cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you

You drove me, nearly drove me, out of my head
While you never shed a tear
Remember, I remember, all that you said
You told me love was too plebeian
Told me you were through with me and

Now you say you love me
Well, just to prove that you do
Come on and cry me a river
Cry me a river
I cried a river over you
I cried a river over you
I cried a river…over you…
