i prefer this Drake…

it’s been a Nick Drake kind of day…but more than that, this tune is kinda rhythmic in both sound and sense. Drake was one of the finest singer/songwriters that the UK ever produced, though he only put out three full length albums and wasn’t lauded in his own time. However, his legacy continues to grow, with many recent and current artists citing him as a deeply revered influence. This gem (all his songs were!) is from the seminal Five Leaves Left, his first record. And check out that diminished chord halfway through the intro progression…sigh [with the just-got-my-mind-blown face]! Enjoy 🙂

Saturday Sun

Saturday sun came early one morning

In a sky so clear and blue
Saturday sun came without warning
So no-one knew what to do

Saturday sun brought people and faces
That didn’t seem much in their day
But when I remembered those people and places
They were really too good in their way

In their way
In their way
Saturday sun won’t come and see me today

Think about stories with reason and rhyme
Circling through your brain
And think about people in their season and time
Returning again and again

And again
And again

But Saturday’s sun has turned to Sunday’s rain
So Sunday sat in the Saturday sun

and wept for a day gone by
