While My Guitar Gently Weeps

While My Guitar Gently Weeps” is a song written by George Harrison, first recorded by the Beatles in 1968 for their eponymous double album (also known as The White Album).

I fall in love deeply to this song, but not the original version from the Beatles.  It’s a jazz cover by Carmen Cuesta. Her soothing vocal and relaxing jazz version of the music, totally bring out a different feel. This is so far the best version I ever heard.

Hong Kong singer / actress, Karen Mok also did a cover for this song in her debut English jazz album – “Somewhere I Belong“. It is a very unique version, where Chinese musical instrument, Guzheng, is mixed together in this jazz cover. Not to forget, the unique voice of hers.

Lyrics:

I look at you all see the love there that’s sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
I look at the floor and I see it needs sweeping
Still my guitar gently weeps.

I don’t know why nobody told you
How to unfold your love
I don’t know how someone controlled you
They bought and sold you.

I look at the world and I notice it’s turning
While my guitar gently weeps
With every mistake we must surely be learning
Still my guitar gently weeps.

I don’t know how you were diverted
You were perverted too
I don’t know how you were inverted
No one alerted you.

I look at you all see the love there that’s sleeping
While my guitar gently weeps
Look at you all…
Still my guitar gently weeps.

Hope you enjoy these songs as much as I do.
