Like many, my “inbox” gets slammed on a daily basis with e-mails that have “made the rounds,” featuring jokes, funny pictures, political satire, links to interesting sites, and so on.
I try to give them all a look – and many of them are quite good – but rarely does one make me “laugh out loud” like this one did.
For those who are familiar with classic rock music, you know that Joe Cocker covered the Beatles’ song “With A Little Help From My Friends.”
He famously performed it at Woodstock – forty years ago this month.
As many of you may also know, Cocker has a unique way of interpreting songs – very soulful, with a bluesy edge, maniacally expressive, free-flowing and from the gut (even though it often looks like he’s about to rip his open).
If you’ve ever wondered exactly what Mr. Cocker was actually singing during his rendition of the Beatles’ classic, this translation may help.
