Bonnie Raitt & Richard Thompson - Dimming of the Day

  • Am Vor 11 years

    CleapatrCleapatr

    This old house is falling down around my ears
    Im drowning in the river of my tears
    When all my will is gone you hold me sway
    I need you at the dimming of the day

    You pulled me like the moon pulls on the tide
    You know just where I keep my better side

    What days have come to keep us far apart
    A broken promise or a broken heart
    Now all the bonny birds have wheeled away
    I need you at the dimming of the day

    Come the night youre only what I want
    Come the night you could be my confidant

    I see you on the street in company
    Why dont you come and ease your mind with me
    Im living for the night we steal away
    I need you at the dimming of the day
    I need you at the dimming of the day

Both a Bonnie Raitt and Richard Thompson fan but I'm sorry to say, she murders this song, she's too harsh.David Gilmour does it justice.

Re: comment below. Richard Thompson is very gracious. However, on this tour Bonnie was the front person and he is in her band. So she has the reins by the very nature of the gig. Nobody has to give her the reins. With all due respect.

the music speaks for itself (straight to the soul) I just want to comment on the side view of Bonnie's face 2:19 and how extraordinary beautiful she is .... Classical marble with a dramatic shock of red hair unfurling to the side.

It is barely possible to put into words what a performance like this can bring to the listener. Only the highest form of musical artistry can make one feel joy in the beauty of a song and shed tears of empathy at the same time. Masterful writing and masterful performance from these two.

Who said we only hear bad news all the time and the world is got to pot, I bring you good news, take a few minutes to sit down and listen to this song, listen to the words of the master songwriter, player/singer Mr Richard Thompson, listen to the killer singing and playing of blessed sister Bonnie Raitt. Now you will know fo great this world is when we have got 2 championing people like those two Queen Bonnie & King Richard

The first time I heard this song was on a Mary Black DVD. I formed and shed the thickest tears ever. I cried for 5 days!! Single and bashed and bruised. It reminded me of when my 8 year boyfriend married someone else. I waited and they divorced but but but can’t go back to him older. Shame. For years I thought I needed him.

It’ no surprise when the daughter of a Broadway leading man can belt it out at times during this wonderful song. Bonnie’s voice was purer in the 70s , but she only diminished slighty at this stage, and combined it with maturity of heart.

There's truth in what you say but personally I'll take Richard Thompson over Dylan any day. It's just a personal preference, but I think that we appreciate the art of another culture only to the extent that we understand it. And we usually understand our own very well.

I love Bonnie's music but this song IMHO belongs to Linda Thompson (and Richard of course). Linda put such incredible emotion into her rendition of the song which I've never heard anyone else find. Perhaps it was the imminent separation of Richard and Linda or ???

Bonnie Raitt...WOW...women are a higher life form! A beautiful artist whose lyrics and song redirect your thoughts either to the place of the song or some other place or other time or love in your life. A twilight of heart and soul and God's gift of sound...a siren sound so lovely your thoughts disengage from the moment and dwell in a higher level of life...time out to ponder what was and what might have been...or tears come too late by years...the beauty of mind and music and Bonnie Raitt...

Painting teachers say success is about showing various shades of a given colour and moving gently from one colour into another. It seems to me songs are similar since if you do the same thing with words you get a wonderful song like this.
