KLASSIEKER: JOE COCKER

KLASSIEKER: Joe Cocker

Wat was ik hier graag bij geweest. Daar op het weiland in het Amerikaanse plaatsje Bethel. Met top muzikanten en publiek om je heen en zonder enige vorm van haast of iets te moeten het leven leven. 3 Days of Peace & Music.
Hier het legendarische optreden van Joe Cocker op het Woodstock Music & Art Fair festival ( 15 tot en met 18 augustus 1969). Ik heb Joe Cocker nog eens live mogen aanschouwen in Groningen (2010) op het podium in Martiniplaza. Hij had toen nog veel energie. In tegenstelling tot het publiek kan ik mij nog herinneren. Ik ga weer de woodstock DVD terugkijken. Proost.

Artiest: Joe Cocker
Nummer: With a Little Help From My Friend
Uitgebracht: 1969
Afkomst: Sheffield, England

 

What would you do if I sang out of tune?
Would you stand up and walk out on me?
Lend me your ears and I’ll sing you a song
I will try not to sing out of key
Oh, baby I get by (Ah, with a little help from my friends)
All I need is my buddies (Ah, with a little help from my friends)
I say I’m gonna get high (Ah, with a little help from my friends)
Oh yeah (Ooh)
What do I do when my love is away?
(Does it worry you to be alone?)
No no
How do I feel at the end of the day?
(Are you sad because you’re on your own?)
I tell ya I don’t get sad no more
Gonna get by with my friends (Ah, with a little help from my friends)
Yeah yeah, I’m gonna try (Ah, with a little help from my friends)
Keep on getting high, oh Lord (Ooh)
I need somebody to love
(Could it be anybody?)
All I need is someone
That’s just where I’m going, yeah
Somebody knows that’s where I’m showing
Baby
Said I’m gonna make it with my friends (Ah, with a little help from my friends)
Oh, I’m gonna keep on trying (Ah, with a little help from my friends)
I’m gonna keep on trying (Ooh)
I’m certain it happens all the time, yeah
(What do you see when you turn out the light?)
I can’t tell you but it sure feels like mine
Don’t you know I’m gonna make it with my friends? (Ah, with a little help from my friends)
I promised myself I’d get by (Ah, with a little help from my friends)
Said I’m gonna try and not work too hard (Ooh)
Well I, yeah yeah yeah

Oh there’s gotta be somebody
Don’t treat me wrong Lord
Oh yeah yeah

Keep on trying with my friends (Ah, with a little help from my friends)
Oh, I’m never gonna stop there, oh (Ah, with a little help from my friends)

    Joe gezien in Sydney 1972 waar hij de longen uit zijn lijf brulde en ook in Dublin 1994 waar het, ondanks zijn gevorderde leeftijd niet veel anders was.
