Song of the Day – “Name’s the same” Tuesday – “You’re the One”

Julian Lennon – Tracy Chapman

About two years ago I posted songs called “You’re the One” with Petula Clark and Kate Bush. Here are two more.

The first is a single from Julian Lennon’s third album, Mr. Jordan. The All music Guide points out that he is using a deeper vocal timbre that is reminiscent of David Bowie – I have to agree, particularly on this song.

.

A couple of weeks ago, I said of Percy Sledge’s “When a Man Loves a Woman”, “What if you are struck blind by an unreasoning love?” Chapman speaks of such an unreasoning love here.

Some say you’re crazy
Say that you’re no good
Say your family’s cursed with bad blood
But I think you’re cute and misunderstood
And I wouldn’t change you if I could
