Ten on Tuesday: You Learn Something New Every Day

There are a couple of Jeff Buckley songs that I really love. One is Lilac Wine. I have always assumed that the song was originally performed by Jeff Buckley. As it turns out, not so much.  I was looking up the Nina Simone version of Wild Is the Wind, and as I glanced at the track listing of one of her album's I saw Lilac Wine listed. Turns out, Lilac Wine was written in 1950 and has been covered by such notables as Nina Simone, Jeff Buckley, and..... Miley Cyrus.  Here is the thing, I am so happy that Miley decided to sing this song with all of her clothes on and without licking things, that I am inclined to say good things about it. It's not that good, it's just 8 millions times less disturbing than anything else she has done in the past few months.

Miley as we all wish her to be: Clean, appropriate, vaguely talented.

Lilac Wine as I originally fell in love with it:

Lilac Wine that will hold my heart from now on because Nina Simone does everything best, in my opinion.
