There are a couple of Jeff Buckley songs that I really love. One is
. I have always assumed that the song was originally performed by Jeff Buckley. As it turns out, not so much. I was looking up the Nina Simone version of
Wild Is the Wind
, and as I glanced at the track listing of one of her album's I saw
listed. Turns out, Lilac Wine was written in 1950 and has been covered by such notables as Nina Simone, Jeff Buckley, and..... Miley Cyrus. Here is the thing, I am so happy that Miley decided to sing this song with all of her clothes on and without licking things, that I am inclined to say good things about it. It's not that good, it's just 8 millions times less disturbing than anything else she has done in the past few months.
Miley as we all wish her to be: Clean, appropriate, vaguely talented.
Lilac Wine as I originally fell in love with it:
Lilac Wine that will hold my heart from now on because Nina Simone does everything best, in my opinion.
