As was mentioned in the previous blog entry, Jeff Buckley can really make a cover song his own, weaving his own style into it. He improvises so much with Van Morrison’s “Sweet Thing” (again on the “Live At Sin-é” CD), making it almost personal. I could listen to it all day.

“And you will hold me strongly in your arms again
Pretty babe, I will not remember that I ever felt the pain”

He adds a whole new verse around halfway through. When I first heard it, I played it over and over again…

“Remember the day when I held your hand
The look in my eyes only you can understand
Remember when we held each other soft and low
How nothing could ever be that strong
Sleep tonight with dreams as sweet as angels wings
All your dreams will bring you sweeter things
Sweet sweet sweet thing, oh sweet thing
Don’t, don’t, don’t you cry, oh no no no
Come here and let me tell you, let me tell you how much I love you
Sweet thing, oh sweet thing
Oh sweet thing, oh sweet thing”
