Ed Sheeran followed the lead of Adele, Carly Rae Jepsen, Mariah Carey, and other musicians to recreate one of his hit songs using classroom instruments.

Sheeran joined Jimmy Fallon and The Roots on the February 27th’s episode of “The Tonight Show” for a performance of his smash single “Shape of You.”

The band used plastic xylophones, a melodica, ukulele, guiro, kazoo, and tambourine, as well as an apple-shaped shaker and blocks to recreate the radio staple. In addition to providing vocals, Sheeran also got his hand on an instrument of his own: the banana-shaped shaker.

~LYRICS~

I think I’ve had enough
I might get a little drunk
I say what’s on my mind
I might do a little time
‘Cause all of my kindness
Is taken for weakness

Now I’m FourFiveSeconds from wildin’
And we got three more days ’til Friday
I’m just tryna make it back home by Monday mornin’
I swear I wish somebody would tell me
Ooh, that’s all I want

Woke up an optimist
Sun was shinin’, I’m positive
Then I heard you was talkin’ trash
Hold me back, I’m ’bout to spaz

I’m FourFiveSeconds from wildin’
And we got three more days ’til Friday
I’m tryna make it back home by Monday mornin’
I swear I wish somebody would tell me
Ooh, that’s all I want

And I know that you’re up tonight
Thinkin’, “How could I be so selfish?”
But you called ’bout a thousand times
Wondering where I’ve been
Now I know that you’re up tonight
Thinkin’ “How could I be so reckless?”
But I just can’t apologize
I hope you can understand

If I go to jail tonight
Promise you’ll pay my bail
See they want to buy my pride
But that just ain’t up for sale
See all of my kindness
Is taken for weakness

Now I’m FourFiveSeconds from wildin’
And we got three more days ’til Friday
I’m tryna make it back home by Monday mornin’
I swear I wish somebody would tell me
Ooh, that’s all I want

FourFiveSeconds from wildin’
And we got three more days ’til Friday
I’m just tryna make it back home by Monday mornin’
I swear I wish somebody would tell me
That’s all I want

At the end of the day …. Piano Guys: “More Than Words”!!


W7

~~May 8, 2015~~ 

MORE THAN WORDS

More Than Words” is a ballad written and originally performed by the rock band Extreme. It is built around acoustic guitar work by Nuno Bettencourt and the vocals of Gary Cherone (with harmony vocals from Bettencourt).

Released in 1990 on the album Extreme II: Pornograffiti, the song marked a departure from the funk metal that had permeated the band’s style previous to its release.

The song was described by Bettencourt as a song warning that the phrase “I love you” was becoming meaningless.

“People use it so easily and so lightly that they think you can say that and fix everything, or you can say that and everything’s OK. Sometimes you have to do more and you have to show it — there’s other ways to say ‘I love you.'”

~LYRICS~

Saying “I love you”
Is not the words
I want to hear from you
It’s not that I want you
Not to say
But if you only knew

How easy
It would be to
Show me how you feel
More than words
Is all you have to do
To make it real
Then you wouldn’t
Have to say
That you love me
Cause I’d already know

What would you do?
If my heart
Was torn in two
More than words
To show you feel
That your love
For me is real

What would you say
If I took
Those words away
Then you couldn’t
Make things new,
Just by saying
“I love you”
More than words,
More than words

Now that I’ve tried to
Talk to you
And make you understand
All you have to do
Is close your eyes
And just reach out your hands

And touch me
Hold me close
Don’t ever let me go
More than words
Is all I ever
Needed you to show
Then you wouldn’t
Have to say
That you love me
Cause I’d already know

What would you do if my heart was torn in two
More than words to show you feel
That your love for me is real
What would you say if I took those words away
Then you couldn’t make things new
Just by saying I love you

At the end of the day …. “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”!!

HEARD IT TODAY … FOR THE FIRST TIME … LOVE IT

The longest-running, most successful partnership in the history of rock takes flight anew as Carlos Santana collaborates with the legendary Clive Davis on the brand new album Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time.

Working from the collective encyclopedic knowledge of rock possessed by the album’s producers, Carlos, Clive Davis, Howard Benson and Matt Serletic, a list of guitar-centric titles was devised and a Who’s Who of guest vocalists were invited to perform on every track alongside Carlos and his full-time band.

Santana covers The Beatles’ ‘While My Guitar Gently Weeps’

In honor of George Harrison’s birthday, recent premiere and encore presentations of “The Night That Changed America: The Grammy’s Salute to The Beatles” featuring George Harrison’s composition of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps;” Carlos Santana decided to cover that same song on his 2010 album, Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time.

Santana’s sensual version features India Arie on vocals and Yo-Yo Ma on cello. Harrison’s album track from The White Album features Eric Clapton on guitar.

Indie and pop music reviewer blogger, Cory Zechmann of “Silence No Good,” had this to say about Santana’s cover version of the 1968 Beatles classic:

I’ve heard quite a few Beatles cover songs before, but this one really does George Harrison’s original justice. I’ve only listened to a couple tracks off Santana’s album, Guitar Heaven: The Greatest Guitar Classics of All Time, but his rendition of this classic takes it.

You can’t beat a Beatle’s song redone by a master guitar player + beautiful vocals by India Arie — oh, and some damn good cello playin’.”

In an online poll held by Guitar World magazine in February 2012, “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” was voted the best of Harrison’s Beatle-era songs. In October 2008, Guitar World ranked Clapton’s playing at number 42 in its list of the “100 Greatest Guitar Solos”.
