Sam Smith - How Will I Know

Sam smith covers the 1985 Whitney Houston hit How Will I Know for a Sirius XM session. 

There’s a boy I know
He’s the one I dream of
Looks into my eyes
Takes me to the clouds above

Ooh, I lose control
Can’t seem to get enough
When I wake from dreaming
Tell me is it really love

How will I know?
(Don’t trust your feelings)
How will I know?

How will I know?
(Love can be deceiving)
How will I know?

How will I know if he really loves me
I say a prayer with every heart beat
I fall in love whenever we meet
I’m asking you what you know about these things

How will I know if he’s thinking of me
I try to phone but I’m too shy
(Can’t speak)
Falling in love is all bitter sweet
This love is strong why do I feel weak

Oh, wake me, I’m shaking
Wish I had you near me now
Said there’s no mistaking
What I feel is really love

Oh tell me how will I know?
(Don’t trust your feelings)
How will I know?

How will I know?
(Love can be deceiving)
How will I know?

How will I know if he really loves me
I say a prayer with every heart beat
I fall in love whenever we meet
I’m asking you what you know about these things

How will I know if he’s thinking of me
I try to phone but I’m too shy
(Can’t speak)
Falling in love is all bitter sweet
This love is strong why do I feel weak

If he loves me, if he loves me not
If he loves me, if he loves me not
If he loves me, if he loves me not

How will I know?
How will I know?
How will I know?
How will I know?

How will I know if he really loves me?
I say a prayer with every heart beat
I fall in love whenever we meet
I’m asking you ‘cause you know about these things

How will I know if he’s thinking of me?
I try to phone but I’m too shy
(Can’t speak)
Falling in love is all bitter sweet
This love is strong why do I feel weak

How will I know?
(How will I know?)
How will I know?
How will I know?

(I say a prayer)
How will I know?
How will I know?
(I’ll fall in love)
How will I know?

Screamin’ Jay Hawkins - Whistlin’ Past the Graveyard

My favourite singer covers my favourite songwriter, doesn’t get better than this, does it.

Both Tom Waits and Screamin’ indeed look like they were born in a taxi cab, but in a very appealing dusty way. I actually always suspected that Tom borrowed a lot of vocal techniques from Hawkins, and you can hear it on his 1980s records. Enjoy the tune.

Time Machine Video of the Week

Jeff Buckley - Hallelujah (Leonard Cohen Cover) (1994)

I heard there was a secret chord
That David played and it pleased the Lord
But you don’t really care for music, do you?

Well it goes like this the fourth, the fifth
The minor fall and the major lift
The baffled king composing Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well your faith was strong but you needed proof
You saw her bathing on the roof
Her beauty and the moonlight overthrew you

She tied you to her kitchen chair
She broke your throne and she cut your hair
And from your lips, she drew the Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Baby, I’ve been here before
I’ve seen this room and I’ve walked this floor
You know, I used to live alone before, I knew you

And I’ve seen your flag on the marble arch
And Love is not a victory march
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Well, there was a time when you let me know
What’s really going on below
But you never show that to me now, do you?

But remember, when I moved in you
And the holy dove was moving too
And every breath, we drew was Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Maybe there’s a God above
But, all I’ve ever learned from love
Was how to shoot somebody who outdrew you?

And it’s not a cry, that you hear at night
It’s not somebody, who’s seen the light
It’s a cold and it’s a broken Hallelujah

Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah
Hallelujah, Hallelujah

Dear Prudence (The Beatles Cover) by Siouxsie & The Banshees.

I think its fair to say that not many people enjoy covers of any Beatles song. But, I personally -  dare I say it - prefer this version! I love the way Siouxsie and The Banshees have completely reworked this whole track and I especially love their use of the Skying Phaser technique in the middle. Overall, an amazing cover!

One-woman band Kawehi covers Nirvana’s ‘Heart-Shaped Box’. Esquire’s Ned Hepburn likes it:

It’s still a pretty great song, and it’s basically uncoverable without sounding trite, overdone, or insincere. […] And what she manages to do with the song (and one large bottle of red wine, apparently) is nuanced and big and, hey, not trite, overdone or insincere.

Lily Allen - Somewhere Only We Know (Keane Cover)

John Lewis Christmas Advert 2013 - The Bear & The Hare.

I walked across an empty land
I knew the pathway like the back of my hand
I felt the earth beneath my feet
Sat by the river and it made me complete

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting tired and I need someone to rely on

I came across a fallen tree
I felt the branches of it looking at me
Is this the place we used to love?
Is this the place that I’ve been dreaming of?

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need something to rely on

And if you have a minute why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything,
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know

Oh simple thing, where have you gone?
I’m getting old and I need someone to rely on
So tell me when you’re gonna let me in
I’m getting tired and I need somewhere to begin

And if you have a minute why don’t we go
Talk about it somewhere only we know?
This could be the end of everything,
So why don’t we go
Somewhere only we know
Somewhere only we know
