MidNight Gems - Undiscovered, Underrated and Forgotten Songs vol.20 " Hänsel Piano Covers"
Look at that chair, the piano....or is it a keyboard....I would say the latter.....but this is the only way to play a song from 1986. If this was 4 years ago.....what would the future bring.....to quote a famous song "Things Can Only Get Better!"
This song inspired me to look for the acoustic version of the song by Placebo. And omg.....hear that piano....it´s very good....but I like the piano in the cover better, but then Mr. Molko opens his trap....and all of a sudden this song is turned into an Angelic Fruitcake.
Let´s go way back again, although you would not guess that this song is from 1978 if you hear the original. The piano version is timeless, and proofs that this song is very well composed and not just catchy.
For me, the piano cover beats the original- It brings out the composition much better, but that is absolutely a taste thingy and has nothing to do with the German accent....More about that when we get to the next song.
Let´s get away from those very old songs and move into the future....into my arms. We are now getting close to my ab fab piano cover, but before we reach that there is an amazing runner-up.
The original is one of my all-time favorite songs and I even compared one of Hänsel projects to these guys. But this cover brings out his qualities very well. He can make songs deeper and darker than the original and he succeeded very well in doing so with this song which was already dark.
He freaking nailed it, I can not choose between the two.....I love the German accent in this song....but the piano cover is so....so....so very beautiful. Dark Whiskey, Dark Room, a single candle and this piano song.....
Oops there it is.....the #1 Piano Cover if you would ask me.....not really fair of course as I was allowed to request a song. For those who know me, I have a crazy eclectic taste and I thought about it for a week.
But the choice was made when I remembered this one...when those first tones dropped and made me think of Hänsel Piano Music........ If some of my favorite songs makes me think of how the cover would sound....I knew I found it.
Being a former DJ playing about everything and having an uncompleted study of radio journalism I have been wanting to do this for years....Thought about it many nights and guess now it´s time to finally take it to the streets.
Hope you enjoyed this slightly confronting wave of amazing music and you still feel like joining me on the next trip as vol 11. of Midnight Gems is coming soon.
