Came across this vid of PG singing one of his favorite Tom Waits tracks - "In the Neighborhood." You can tell he's very emotionally connected to the song - very beautiful and intimate moment with just Peter and a piano.

I was not much taken with the recording, but after hearing it as part of the live set at Radio City Music Hall, it seemed a perfect closing to all of these songs about our tortured souls....trying to keep that flame alive despite the madness of the societies in which we live.
When Peter whispers, our souls bend closer to listen.
It's not the fact that it's sad which ruins the song for me, Dolce: I *love* sad music (Joy Division, Nick Drake, that merry, joyful band Sunn O etc. ) but that cover is just bad.

Covers are bad overall. Don't like 'me no matter who does 'me, no matter what song. Very happy that pg's over that kick for a bit!

... And the edit function looks like this:
** 'me. Would be changed to 'em. **

Yes, i agree, covers are always something strange, personally i prefer original songs of an artist than covers. By the way, Peter is different , because in S.M.B. he transoforms songs by others, in a gabrielian-way very cute and fashinating, i think this
Caste, i understand what you mean, i think in "Street spirit", the gabrielian-touch ( i call it so) can't raise the song, so the result is too much sadness, maybe that's why after many listens i do not like too much.
P.s. hope you understand my bad english. .
