TUESDAY BLUES! Damien Rice - One

Damien Rice - One (2011)

This was recently included on Q Magazine's tribute to U2's "Achtung Baby" and by god it's good!

I was a huge fan of his debut album 'O' and is follow up '9', but I particularly like how when he sings, every line sounds like he means it.  So I wasn't to be disappointed when I first heard this, from the piano & guitar intro he (again) takes you away to a cold place that is so tender, so meaningful and melancholy - So wrap up warm, put a log on the fire, pour yourself a drink and "enjoy the pain!"
"..Smile like you mean it.."

I've got the Tuesday Blues because Saturday is so far away.....(more here!)

'like he means it', no more so than when he sings 'Cheers Darling' through gritted teeth, you can feel his anguish. Absolutely brilliant. This is a great cover, hard to do to such an iconic song.

I can't get over how beautiful this is. So heartfelt it's almost painful to listen to. Genius.
