I Love You, I Love You, I Love You, Like Never Before


What a beautiful voice she had. While it takes a lot to beat anything Fleetwood Mac did, I think Eva's version of this song reigns.


~ Songbird ~

For you, there'll be no crying
For you, the sun will be shining
'Cause I feel that when I'm with you
It's alright, I know it's right

And the songbirds keep singing
Like they know the score
And I love you, I love you, I love you
Like never before

To you, I'd give the world
To you, I'd never be cold
'Cause I feel that when I'm with you
It's alright, I know it's right

And the songbirds keep singing
Like they know the score
And I love you, I love you, I love you
Like never before
Like never before, like never before.


P.S. As many of you haven't yet heard of her, I've updated this entry to include a link to a website about Eva Cassidy.

Update: It's true, Jonas, that this cover of 'Fields of Gold' is again better than the original. I recall reading somewhere that even Sting was awestruck by it. Sadly no video exists of her singing this live that night, but this has been strung together by someone wanting to get close to what it might have been like to watch her singing this beautiful song. Eva was an amazing talent, gone too soon.

Yeah, I love her voice too.

My favorite Eva Cassidy tune is her cover of "Fields of Gold" (the live version). Such a shame that she died so young.

Did you know that she was painfully shy, and that she was almost embarrassed to sing in public? True. Yet, she had a gift that simply could not be denied expression. I'm grateful for even the small body of work she left us.

Fiona,

Have you ever heard her sing the Christmas tune "It's Not the Presents Under My Tree (It's Your Presence Right Here Next to Me)"? If not, drop me an e-mail.

Sigh...I cannot hear it here at home, not with the demon dial-up, but I will try to remember to take some time on my work pc to have a listen...I am intrigued.

It seems we have the same subject on our minds.

Fiona - What a true songbird she is and although i'll always have a soft spot for Karen - Eva does edge it slightly :-)

I love Eva Cassidy....very talented and such a sad story. It's a shame not many people know of her.
Thanks for bringing her up....

What a beautiful song from such a beautifully gifted singer. I love her version of 'Imagine', it gives me chills every time I hear it.

She was such a special soul, much too young to be taken so soon.
