Last night was held via the internet One World: Together At Home, popularly known as the Live Aid era of the coronavirus. Was the concentration of stars largest since the beginning of the crisis. Among the dozens of proceedings (all from their homes and interpreting a single song), these were the most poignant.
Paul McCartney, ‘Lady Madonna’
One of the qualities of idols popular is that they appear when they are most needed. And Paul McCartney is always there, to give us a hand and arrullarnos with his voice and his piano. Last night your presence will come to the world. One of the great traumas of the beatle he was to lose his mother. Mary died of cancer when McCartney was 14 years old. She worked as a nurse during the Second World War. White and in bottle. McCartney dedicated this Lady Madonna all the toilets in the world. “I love you. Thank you,” he said at the beginning of the song, and the planet shook.
Billie Eilish, ‘Sunny’
With a grey sweatshirt, part of the coma tinged with green chillon, sitting, and accompanied by the pianist californian Finneas. He presented Billie Eilish the musical star plus young man of the time (18 years), who chose an upbeat song and cool, the well-known Sunny, composed by Bobby Hebb in the early sixties. With a delicate tone of voice and a pose of teenager-lazy, Eilish achieves a beautiful version.
Taylor Swift, ‘Soon You’ll Get Better’
One of the performances more exciting. Taylor Swift chose your song Soon You’ll Get Betterof your disk Lover. It is a theme to the open grave dedicated to her mother, who has cancer. Alone with his piano, Swift, emotion, sings: “Only I like to pretend that is not real./ I’ll paint the kitchen of neon, I’m going to light up the sky./ I know that never I will understand, there is not a day that don’t try./ You’ll soon feel better”.
Billie Joe Armstrong – ‘Wake Me Up When September Ends’
The leader of Green Day also opted for a song therapeutic. Your success Wake Me Up When September Ends he is dedicated to his father, who died of cancer when he was only 10 years old. With an acoustic guitar and staring into space, Armstrong goes through the feelings you gave up that loss. “Despiértame when September ends”, he sings. Already we have signed all that by that date, you have finished this nightmare.
John Legend and Sam Smith, “Stand By Me”
A bet on a security, Stand By Me (the 1961 hit by Ben E. King), but with a sensational result, to the voices of John Legend and San Smith. Patina soul of the first and the outburst of the second. The result is fantastic.
Lizzo, ‘A Change Is Gonna Come’
The song of Sam Cooke, who tells us that “a change is coming”, go yes. Accompanied by an organ and interesting percussion in the background, that vozarrón that God has given to Lizzo will shedding this sorry soul. What is there to say that the outboard? That’s it.
Eddie Vedder, ‘River Cross’
Emulating the sound of that Unplugged of his beloved Neil Young, Eddie Vedder writhes on his body to perform a song included in the new album of her group, Pearl Jam, Gigaton. Vedder is working the scene, with candles and a dim ambience to make a version of River cross that is better than that of the disk.
The Rolling Stones, ‘You Can’t Always Get What You Want’
They pointed to last time at the festival and performed You Can’t Always Get What You Want, a topic that, oddly enough, used Donald Trump on the day of the celebration of his victory in the elections, to the annoyance of Mick Jagger. Charlie Watts seems to touch a battery virtual (what things, to your age), it sounds a low not seen in screen, and the presence of Keith Richards is… that, to see you once more, in a rogue, always a pleasure. But participates little. So get a victorious version of the great You Can’t Always Get What You Want Mick Jagger (sweet voice) and Ron Wood (cash in the technic of the guitar.) Jagger leads as within the scenario at a given moment says: “Catad all”. What should be happening fatal for having to suspend the tour of the Sassi.
