    Default Enjoy

    This to me is perhaps one of the greatest songs ever and Jeff Buckley is amazing. It is too bad he died so young because he had so much more to give.

    Utube has caught up with you. Video is "no longer available." Too bad. I have never heard of him and would have liked to get the exposure.

    Ahh, Jeff Buckley is amazing. His music is very haunted. This is one of my favorites:

    Grace
    there's the moon asking to stay
    long enough for the clouds to fly me away
    well it's my time coming, i'm not afraid to die
    my fading voice sings of love,
    but she cries to the clicking of time
    oh, time

    wait in the fire...

    and she weeps on my arm
    walking to the bright lights in sorrow
    oh drink a bit of wine we both might go tomorrow
    oh my love

    and the rain is falling and i believe
    my time has come
    it reminds me of the pain
    i might leave
    leave behind

    wait in the fire...

    and i feel them drown my name
    so easy to know and forget with this kiss
    i'm not afraid to go but it goes so slow

    Her it is without the video just the song. Sorry about the other one, it does play at youtube but the embedding is disabled.

    Oooh, love this song, too. Haunting only begins to describe it. It was used very effectively in a great episode of the West Wing, Posse Comitatus.

    Beautiful. I have heard the song before, but not his rendition. I will search for more of his music. Thank you for giving me this experience.

    As good as Jeff was (Grace being one of the best albums of the '90s), his dad Tim was even better, and a more prolific artist. "Happy/Sad" (1969) was one of the '60s best IMO and "Lorca" (1970) and "Greetings from LA" (1972) showcase his incredible vocal range and to a large degree have stood the test of time. I still have several Tim Buckley on vinyl (and converted to MP3) and still dig listening to both father and son. Tim died at an even younger age than his son (28).

    Blue, speaking of episodes, I first remember seeing Jeff's Dad Tim sing at the end of an episode of....The Monkees! Strangely enough, Mickey Dolenz of the Monkees was instrumental in launching the dad's career.
