Van Morrison – Comfortably numb

Uf, naježila se mi je koža, ko sem to izvedbo Comfortably numb slišal v izvedbi Vana Morrisona. Original od Pink Floyd je seveda masterpiece, toda lirika pesmi pride do izraza šele v izvedbi z Vanom Morrisonom. Njegov glas je magičen, in šele ko on zapoje The child is grown / The dream is gone / I… Have become comfortably numb, dobi pesem dobi barvo. Tukaj je koncertna izvedba v zvezdniški postavi: Roger Waters, Van Morrison, The Band – Comfortably Numb (1990).

Še izsek iz lirike:

There is no pain you are receding
A distant ship’s smoke on the horizon
You are only coming through in waves
Your lips move
But I can’t hear what you’re saying

When I was a child
I caught a fleeting glimpse
Out of the corner of my eye

I turned to look but it was gone
I cannot put my finger on it now
The child is grown
The dream is gone
I… Have become comfortably numb

Tekst: David Jon Gilmour & Roger Waters (Pink Floyd)

Original izvira seveda od Pink Floyd, tukaj je njihova koncertna izvedba iz 1994.

Kot rečeno, izvrstna izvedba, seveda. Ničkolikokrat sem je preposlušal v zadnjih dveh desetletjih. Toda meni je pesem zares magična šele v izvedbi z Vanom Morrisonom.
