Ελπίζω “τα τεκταινόμενα” να μη μας καταστρέψουν τελείως το κέφι, γιατί έχω μαζέψει πράματα και θάματα για το φθινοπωρινό αφιέρωμα.
Ακούμε μια πρόταση του stcigar : την Nick Cave – ική βερσιόν του τραγουδιού των ‘60s, “Weeping Annaleah”, μετονομασμένου σε “Sleeping Annaleah”. Από το άλμπουμ με covers, Kicking Against The Pricks, των middle ‘80s.

I hope “the “current affairs” won’t completely destroy our joy, because I‘ve gathered great stuff for the autumn tribute.
We hear a stcigar’s proposal : Nick Cave’s version of the ‘60s song “Weeping Annaleah”, title turned to “Sleeping Annaleah”, From covers album Kicking Against The Pricks, released in the mid ’80s.


❝ Yesterday the sun was shining but you’re finding the sun it
Don’t shine all the time
A winter day suddenly came your way
And you ran into your mind
Sleeping Annaleah, weeping Annaleah
Do you think you’re ready for me?
Oh, and yesterday is gone forever and ever, never
To be again
You looked for the sunshine, that brought warmth to your mind
But find only rain, yeah
Sleeping Annaleah, weeping Annaleah
No, you’re not ready for me
But when yesterday becomes a memory, a memory
That we uncovered in time
If you still remember that cold September
I reigned in your mind, yeah
Sleeping Annaleah, weeping Annaleah
Then you’d be ready for me
Sleeping Annaleah, oh, weeping Annaleah, oh
Sleeping Annaleah, oh, weeping Annaleah, oh
Sleeping Annaleah, oh, weeping Annaleah, oh
Sleeping Annaleah ❞
