I love the idea of making music from everyday sounds.
I stumbled across Bubbles and then went looking. I love this sound and the documentary is almost spiritual.
The Prayers of Leonard Cohen: If It Be Your Will by Doron B. Cohen
When I look back upon my life
It’s always with a sense of shame
I’ve always been the one to blame
For everything I long to do
No matter when or where or who
Has one thing in common, too
It’s a, it’s a, it’s a, it’s a sin
It’s a sin
Everything I’ve ever done
Everything I ever do
Every place I’ve ever been
Everywhere I’m going to
It’s a sin
I just like this song!
Everybody’s quoting the bibleMatt Maher
Like it could be truth or lies
And I’m standing on the corner
With the saints and the sinners
Tryin’ to quote Your love
With my life
This is a magnificent piece of music. But the best about this particular version is Yo-Yo Ma’s enthusiasm while he plays – he does not play the piece but he lives it. He plays the piece for himself, not an audience or money, but completely for his own enjoyment.
