RUFUS WAINWRIGHT: THE ONE YOU LOVE


RUFUS WAINWRIGHT is one of the most important and talented singer-songwriter of the last decade. Rufus comes from a musical family, his father is Loudon Wainwright III, Kate McGerrigale his mother and his sister Martha Wainwright. Although probably the genius of the family is him. We have selected a track from Want Two (2004) entitled THE ONE YOU LOVE, a pop athem of our time.


LYRICS

The mind has so many pictures
Why can't I sleep with my eyes open
The mind has so many memories
Can you remember what it looks like when I cry

I'm Trying, trying to tell you
All that I can in a sweet and velvet tongue
But no words ever could sell you
Sell you on me after all that I have done

I'm only the one you love
Am I only the one you love?
The Lady Gloom and her hornets circling round
Is now before us, the screaming's done without moving
One little move and for sure you will be stung

I'm singing "Oh, Jerusalem oh, Jerusalem
See what he's picked up in the park"
Let's f**k this awful art party
Want you to make love to me and only to me in the dark

I'm only the one you love
Am I only the one you love?

We've traded in our snap shots
We're going through the motions
Into the view, I'm leaving you
Down Conduit Avenue into the early morning
Into the early morning
The one I love
Are you only the one I love?

Beautiful and tenderness voice, for my is a bit slow, but is a good song

¿Slow? So, I don't recommend his latest álbum. It is the slowest album on earth. ¡I think is funeral music...!

As you already know, for me this is one of the most beatiful masculine voices in the actual music. Everything he touches becomes magic, a classical song or a more modern one, like this. This song is great, and I can feel his sister's characteristic voice behind... am I wrong?? :-)

@ ATTICUS' DAUGHTER

I Know you' re in love of Rufus' voice. And It's probably that Martha's voice sounds on that song. Before having a solid solo career was involved in her brother's records with vocals. Even still, she continues to work with him when he needs her.

@ WODEHOUSE

Yes, He is a Crack. A great genious.

I am going to invent the way that you can comment in Castilian of Delicatessens' post , if you want... But in Exquisiteces.

you do not have to apologize. I have to invent something so you can comment in Castilian if you want. But it will be in Exquisiteces. I will open a post to comment the songs of this blog there. Because there is people who cannot speak English.
