Well I wish I could think of some cliché to mouth
To make our parting seem less sad
But if I told you lies or promised you the moon
The truth would come trickling from my eyes

So run honey run, and hide in the wind
And never stop to look inside your mind

And I wish I could wash all my weeping blues away
And watch them disappear on morning tide
But I seek after sword, after sounds of the sea
A charm forever round my mind

So run honey run, and hide in the wind
And never stop to look inside your mind

So run honey run, and hide in the wind
And never stop to look inside your mind

And I wish I could fly like a bat from a cave
From darkness of my ignorance to light
And forever live on the echoes of our love
And die like some star burning bright

So run honey run, hide in the wind
And never stop to look inside your mind

Wait a sec...
If by "old" you mean 1967, OK.  But this is not an "old English Folkie" by a common definition.  This song is a John Martyn original from the album London Conversation.



Thank You for the info!

Thanks for pointing that out.  What an amazing guitar player.  The gauge of strings he uses are masssive!  I've listened to his original five times and still love it.  They just don't make music like this anymore and I think it's great that a band like Morcheeba did this version.  If only more of the new bands and artists would listen to the older stuff, maybe they would actually master an instrument and get rid of the vo-coder.  Kate Bush and others making the top ten list in 2022 is a hopeful sign that the younger generation is listening.

I'm generally averse to taking on a PC-police role here (or anywhere) but that was an easy call. Absurd comment -- and yes, racist as hell.

The May You Never artist. Great stuff.

I hear a little bit of Steve Earle in that guitar. Enjoyable tune.



the beautiful fingerstyle guitar work is lost in this Club Remix. Go to John's original version to hear it

The original is from John Martyn's "London Conversation" released in 1967. Great tune. This cover is a solid 7, but the original is closer to 9....
Why do they say Morcheeba, this is John Martyn

Huh? Doesn't sound like the Morcheeba I  use to know... 
like the lyrics , h8 the music - thats a 5 in my book

Cool!  I'm going to check that out.
...I thought I had heard this song before... skipped through it to get to the Judie Tzuke song. Would certainly appreciate more Judie Tzuke on RP
Even without Skye, this song is pretty badass sounding, enough so to rate a 9,and makes me curious enough to go find the original JM version to compare this to; Long Live RP!!

Edited on 2/20/2024 to revise my original silly comment 

"and better than the original maybe (though I haven't heard JM's version so I don't know for sure...)" 

and replaced with the above comment about being curious to hear the John Martyn original.  

And forever "LONG LIVE RP" - it is my eternal expression of love for this here Radio Paradise, where my neverending lesson of what music I like, dislike, love and loath will continue forever, with a heavy emphasis on the "LOVE" and maybe working towards an empty bucket of "loath"  LLRP, indeed!!

It's an English singer named Bradley Burgess.

Yes, I agree it's missing Skye, but still a cool song.  Has some kind of medieval folkloric threads through it.

The turntable scratches are the only clue for me. Very distinctive style.

Totally agree. Was stunned to see them as the performer.

Just saw them on Sunday night. Skye is back and she is AMAZING. Stage presence, performance, and that voice! (Everything that's missing in this one).
 
That is a woman I could marry for her voice alone. It just settles in my bones.

Yeah... maybe I haven't been listening to Morcheeba lately, but this song just doesn't seem to represent them well.
I dont want to hear this song every day, but once in a while it great.

Do troll every song on RP... it's sooooo funny

If Gordon Lightfoot was in Morcheeba... hmmm... interesting.




Good stuff, haven't heard from Morcheeba in a few years...
is that john redfern?
moving up in my rating world...

I think the scratching makes it as well.
Excelent, morcheeba deserves a 10.

Could really do without the cheesy record scratching.  I mean, this is Morcheeba, not Sugar Ray.

No Sky but the guy is sly

This album really sucks. A few of the songs are good, but they do the same song 3 times on the album, and, after all, Skye is Morcheeba and she is back on their new album (which I found disappointing)
wow so different from the morcheeba voice i loved. but i like it. where is skye?
{#Drummer}I'm liking this band more and more{#Dancingbanana_2}

Me too...surprised me that it was Morcheeba.. NICE. 7

I like this more every time I hear it.
I still rate the John Martyn version, but a good tune

I listened to the song without the knowledge this was Morcheeba, so I the song and I met without prejudices.

And I think I'll let it go this way. Sounds interesting.

 

Nice little place you live in. Stayed there for some hours years ago.... ;)



A bit folkey for Morcheeba, but an interesting experiment which IMO works well. The songs RP have played from this CD have nearly got me reaching for the plastic again. Curse you, RP - you've cost me a fortune! :)

It's Bradley Burgess, and the song is a cover of an old favorite by John Martyn.
I love Morcheeba but obviously have not kept up with it. Not their usual sound. Must hear more.

Hmm... I wonder who is their new vocalist...
 
After a break of several years, Morcheeba released their sixth studio album, Dive Deep in February 2008. On this album, the Godfrey brothers emphasised their role as producers creating a set of instrumental tracks entirely sung by a roster of guest performers - cult folk-rock singer Judie Tzuke, Norwegian singer-songwriter and former Jaga Jazzist collaborator Thomas Dybdahl, blues singer/guitarist Bradley Burgess, Korean-American rapper Cool Calm Pete, and French singer Manda.) Both Manda and Burgess toured with Morcheeba as lead singers on their 2008 tour.
