Wish You Were Here - Pink Floyd

A "bump" from April '09.

Last night I was binge-watching the new series Timeless and a cover of this was at the end of one of the earlier episodes. I knew I had posted it before, but found it was now blocked from being viewed in the U.S. due to copyright concerns. This version is also live, but not with all of Pink Floyd, only David Gilmour.

After watching the episode, I came online and listened to several versions of the tune, both studio and live in concert as well as some covers. I then researched the lyrics to find out if there was any specific reference being made. What I found out was very interesting: Behind the Song: Pink Floyd’s “Wish You Were Here”. That said, I've always thought the lyrics were fascinating, well crafted to match the lovely melody.

Four Winds - Bright Eyes

Stumbled across this vid here a while back and I'm not for sure whether I want to buy the album or boo along with the audience.

Lovely tune, strange lyrics. It's a protest, but I'm not for sure against WHAT.

Update:  Some interpretations of the lyrics.

Livin' Thing - ELO

One of my most favorite songs from one of my most favorite groups.

The song begins talking about the exhilaration of falling in love, then the lows that follow the loss of that love. Love truly is a "living thing".

I've Been Thinking About You - Londonbeat

Noticed the original video had been taken down, an expected hazard of posting videos.
