Sunday Samples 313

January 27, 2013

The last couple days I’ve seen the trailer for Dead Man Down a few times, which features Kendra Morris’ bluesy cover of Pink Floyd’s “Shine On You Crazy Diamond” (Parts II and IV, for those keeping score at home). Let’s take a listen.

Remember when you were young
You shone like the sun?
Shine on, you crazy diamond

Now there’s a look in your eyes
Like black holes in the sky
Shine on, you crazy diamond

You were caught in the cross-fire
Of childhood and stardom
Blown on the steel breeze

Come on you target
For faraway laughter
Come on you stranger
You legend
You martyr
And shine

You reached for the secret too soon
You cried for the moon
Shine on, you crazy diamond

Threatened by shadows at night
And exposed in the light
Shine on, you crazy diamond

Well you wore out your welcome
With random precision
Rode on the steel breeze

Come on you raver
You seer of visions
Come on you painter
You piper
You prisoner
And shine
