Το μελωδικό – στιχουργικό ταλέντο και ο ρωμαλέος συναισθηματισμός του Rufus Wainwright τον αναδεικνύουν σε ένα από τους top singers – songwriters, από το ξεκίνημα της νέας χιλιετίας.
Εδώ τον ακούμε να αναπολεί τον “κοριτσίστικο” έρωτα του για τον καθηγητή τέχνης στο σχολείο.
Τραγούδι από το άλμπουμ του, ‘Want Two’, 2004

Rufus Wainwright‘s melodic – lyrical talent and robust sentimentality make him one of the top singer – songwriters, since the beginning of the new millennium.
Here we hear him reminisce about his “girly” love for an art teacher at school.
A song from his ‘Want Two’ album, 2004.

❝ There I was in uniform
Looking at the art teacher
I was just a girl then;
Never have I loved since then
He was not that much older than I was
He had taken our class to the Metropolitan Museum
He asked us what our favorite work of art was,
But never could I tell it was him
Oh, I wish I could tell him,
Oh, I wish I could have told him
I looked at the Rubens and Rembrandts
I liked the John Singer Sargents
He told me he liked Turner
Never have I turned since then
No, never have I turned to any other man
All this having been said,
I married an executive company head
All this having been done, a Turner, I own one
Here I am in this uniformish, pant-suit sort of thing,
Thinking of the art teacher
I was just a girl then;
Never have I loved since then
No, never have I loved any other man

Enjoy!

and

Stay Safe!
