Cover versions of favourite songs

That ancient art form whose medium is sound.
Melody, harmony, rhythm and inspiration.

A cut originally from The Beatles' White Album, written by George Harrison. This is Yim Yames' (Jim James from the band My Morning Jacket) remake of it in hymn-like fashion.


It's been a long long long time,
How could I ever have lost you
When I loved you.

It took a long long long time
Now I'm so happy I found you
How I love you

So many tears I was searching,
So many tears I was wasting, oh. Oh--

Now I can see you, be you
How can I ever misplace you
How I want you
Oh I love you
You know that I need you.
Ooh I love you.

That is very beautiful David.
I just bought the mp3.

It will be part of the summer 2010 CD I'm working on. :)

A great original.. a masterpiece and a classic, but... I still prefer the cover by A Perfect Circle.

I do not know which version is better, original with Neil Diamond or the cover with Pat Cash. Enjoy both.
