This week marks the 47th anniversary of America’s America album. It was originally released without the mega-hit “A Horse With No Name” but that song became a hit and it was reissued early in 1972 with that song included. So here we have a lovely young lady doing her rendition of “Horse” with a little laidback stoner quality, but more importantly, she has great vocal fluctuations throughout. She’s French but I love the accent coming through, too. Enjoy!
Until tomorrow, same blog channel…
“On the first part of the journey, I was looking at all the life. There were plants and birds and rocks and things, there was sand and hills and rings. The first thing I met was a fly with a buzz and the sky with no clouds. The heat was hot and the ground was dry but the air was full of sound. I’ve been through the desert on a horse with no name. It felt good to be out of the rain. In the desert, you can remember your name ’cause there ain’t no one for to give you no pain.” – “A Horse with No Name” (Bunnell)
