New album by Jorcx

Post by harald » Sat Jan 19, 2013 12:59 pm

Jorcx from Barcelona has produced a new CD.
See the thread in The music place / Other music.
Jorcx played on the Barcelona meetups in 2009 and 2012.
(as the thread is probably not so often looked at, i dared to give the notice here - if that´s not right, please just delete it, dear operators)

Dear friends, in addition to the new record I'm also proud to present this new videoclip of one of my own songs, which is very much inspired by Leonard Cohen in spirit:

"L'Oncle Cohen" ("Uncle Cohen")
Music by Jorcx / Lyrics by Artur Rodríguez
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z1tcoWf-ZNg

It is in fact some kind of emotional reference to the figure of Leonard as a guiding presence in corner-stone moments of life. Some of you who attended the latest Barcelona Event in October '12 may have already seen me play this song live in the tribute concert. Best regards, I hope you like it!

I like your video, voice, melody, and guitar/harmonica, Jordi. Only wish I knew what your lyrics were saying.

Yeah, you said it... Thanks for your kind comments, Lizz. Here's a translation of the lyrics:

UNCLE COHEN
Music by Jorcx
Lyrics by Artur Rodríguez

Blue light reflections
The Milky Way at our feet
Naked on the bed
Getting crazy by the sound of the voices

Flying over the Ebre Delta
Year 2007 comes to my mind
We melt like an ice-cream of memories
And the Moon keeps talking to us

Never forget how to love
Sing, my darling
Uncle Cohen will help you
I know he'll help you out
Sometimes it makes me wonder
If you're still on your way

I keep your kisses safe
For whatever summer you come back
Next to a bottle of Jameson
And your smile and all those dreams

I remember you dancing
And later when we laid down
And while the ship went by
The rain washed away my tears

Never forget how to love
Sing, my darling
Uncle Cohen will help you
I know he'll help you out
Sometimes it makes me wonder
If you're still on your way

Thanks for helping me out there, Jordi. Your imagery works well with the lyrics.

By the way, I've managed to incorporate the subtitles... I hope it helps!
