A superb transition from Moonlight Sonata. 



Satie's Gymnopedie No. 1 this time.  Both sublime segways
A superb transition from Moonlight Sonata. 
Following Beethoven's Moonlight Sonata, number 1 on RP?  That's tough.
Nice follow up to Erik Satie!
Excellent version!
wow this is a great rendition of this track ordering this album just on this track
In the "small world" department...this just came on RP while I'm reading an NME article about Nandi Bushell's cover of this song.   Weird.

Really neat cover version. Lovely melody. FWIW, I love the Pixies.
A few hours ago Bill played this same song covered by Storm Large, which commenters trashed because it didn't have the same energy as the original. Well, this has the energy dialed down to 1, and it's still good. So there.

Sorry for the run on sentence.

 
I think you're right, and I downgraded it from 8 to 5. Indeed I constantly hear the voice and the lyrics. If I wouldn't, I'd find this pretty boring. Having said that, it doesn sound pretty cool if your head fills in what's missing. But an 8 was too much...
 
You downgraded this from 8 to 5 because of a comment of a fellow RP-listener?

Where is your mind?!
oh, so lovely. It deserves just a 4 for missing the point entirely. Oh well.

*shrug* Works for me
For pianists: the sheet music of this is available for free, it's not that hard to play.
Splendid Isolation sounds ever so topical: I totally forgot just how Warren Zevon plays my heart strings —Peter Gabriel not so much 
I love all the renditions I know of this song/tune. The original, Storm large, and this. All so beautiful in their own way.
Hang in there Paris... we will meet again. 
Fantastic segue from Pink Floyd's "Another Brick In The Wall, Part 2", to this.   DJ'ing at it best 
No.  Just, no.   This is far too civilized for one's mind to be considered lost.   There is no off-key screeching, beckoning, for one's sense of reality.    A travesty, really.
Where is my band?
Whoa. I'm channeling Westworld doing Radiohead. Gorgeous
And yes, off to the original for Take 2 of Take 1
I know you wouldn't dare, BillG, but just once I'd love to hear the Pixies original played immediately after!

Certainly fits at the end of this movie
Great tune turned into elevator music...
Can still hear the lyrics ...Beautiful little pixies jumping on the keys. 
This is rather lovely but it does make me realize what an integral part of the song Black Francis's histrionics are.

I thought it was a cover of that song... although quick search reveals "Fix You" pre-dated this by 4 years if the release date is accurate. 

[edit] the plot thickens... this is actually a cover of a pixie's song

Heard this on TV show the Leftovers.   Now I know....

His recordings were/are on obscure, little labels.  This one is probably out of print but it can be downloaded from Amazon or purchased for over $100. US.
Everyone please stop saying the C word.

Following this up with "coldplay" is like serving up a big mac after foie gras.
I think this is better than the official video: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=t7sJlMG8UEA

I'd love the sheet music for this.
NICE ! Prefer original. 
Editing to segue is cheating Bill!!!!! Oh well, two amazing songs that belong together.
Beautiful... True music

Agreed!  Made me anticipate later seasons of the series significantly more after hearing it!

I like the original, and I really like this.
Love it!  
God this is awful.
Second time I've heard this and I like it more than before. 8>9.

I love this, almost more than the original.  When you're singing "where is my mind?" it *should* sound tragic.

I’ve always held that truly great songs transcend instrumentation. Put another way, if you can pickup a guitar or sit at a piano, play a given chord progression (and sing along where appropriate), and the result catches the ear, you’ve got a good song. This rendition is a perfect example.
 
Most of the great music of the ‘80s fits into the same camp for me – regardless of how glossy the production (not to mention the clothes and hair of the artist), most ‘80s songs can be played with simple instrumentation and still sound great, and that's why I frequent defend '80s music beyond its nostalgic value to me.
I LOVE the original version.
This is quite beautiful, though.

Yum
The Pixies were a huge part of my youth and Where Is My Mind was a very emotional song for me. Maxence Cyrin's fantastic cover brings tears to my eyes every time I hear. Beautifully done

Yes. I knew within the first minute that this was a Pixies song, but couldn't quite place it. I may not like this the next time I hear it, but I'm glad I heard it tonight. A tentative 8. 

4/2/16: Yah. This works: 8 —> 9.

Hauntingly, sooo suitably sa(i)d.
No.  There are certain groups who should not be muzak-ed and the Pixies are one of them.  Let me off the elevator, please (=PSD).

What about Sunday Girl (Jade Williams), at least her cover has vocals!
Amazing...

So much better than the original.

Maybe RP could split off an Easy Listening/Mellow Jazz station. This would be a perfect fit for that sort of thing.
This isn't bad.
My favorite cover of this song!
A wee bit on the minimal side of things.
I can name that song in two notes...
