By Sam Cooke
Why is it we can never seem to do justice to our most cherished songs? Alas, I can not play any stringed instruments other than guitar and I only had a couple of hours to finish this. I always promise myself that I will return and record songs again when I don’t like the final outcome, but the truth is I think I just need more practice at them.
That being the case, this song has held a special significance to me for awhile (especially last year when I was both in a play, found a romance, lost a job, started this blog and then found a job), and I always feel its weight when listening to/playing/singing it. So is this rendition great? Naw, not by a long shot. Do I regret doing it? Not a chance.
