196. Faith (George Michael Cover – ROUGH)

DAY ONE-HUNDRED AND NINETY-SIX

I have been compiling a large list of songs that I would like a huge UN-sanctioned choir to cover some day.  I really think it could potentially unite us all as one world and bring peace to the land.  This list includes, but is not limited to:

In-A-Gadda-Da-Vida by Iron Butterfly (An example for you has already been done, actually. Click the link to hear.)

Faith by George Michael

Jammin’ by Bob Marley

Losing My Religion by REM

Pearl and the Beard has been writing songs up in Connecticut, and sadly, we are leaving today.  We’ve been working hard to create some songs we’re happy with but at a certain point in the process it makes you crazy, and you get a bit desperate.  Yesterday, we were to this point and just started singing this song.  Unfortunately, I didn’t get a better version, but there’s something special about this craziness, although we might be the only people who will think this.  I ran to the computer to record it as we were starting but missed the first few seconds.  I might try to get us to do this better and repost when we have some time.  You just have to have a little…

Faith by George Michael (First Rough)

(I want you to know that I absolutely love the original of this song.  I remember when it came out: I totally wore my record out!)

Well I guess it would be nice
If I could touch your body
I know not everybody
Has got a body like you

But I’ve got to think twice
Before I give my heart away
And I know all the games you play
Because I play them too

Oh but I
Need some time off from that emotion
Time to pick my heart up off the floor
And when that love comes down
Without devotion
Well it takes a strong man baby
But I’m showing you the door

‘Cause I gotta have faith…

Baby
I know you’re asking me to stay
Say please, please, please, don’t go away
You say I’m giving you the blues
Maybe
You mean every word you say
Can’t help but think of yesterday
And another who tied me down to loverboy rules

Before this river
Becomes an ocean
Before you throw my heart back on the floor
Oh baby I reconsider
My foolish notion
Well I need someone to hold me
But I’ll wait for something more

Yes I’ve gotta have faith…
