    About :

    Mister Sun was finally sent back to Spain for the weekend, after being away and busy with his task to bring so good weather to other parts of the world. We took this small sacrifice, having several weeks of very bad weather, well, good things have to be shared, so the sun too. During the weekend the others enjoyed a bit of snow and I can be just jealous happy for them. I was happy with our sun having it back.


    It was finally sunny this Sunday

    But the very next day, the rain came back. Clouds covered again our sky, and it seemed that we are back into some autumn mood. When it rains here, suddenly and in large quantities, sometimes small rivers overflow. I have a student who has been living in a rural part of a place for a few months now, more precisely next to a river that overflowed. Their access to the house was blocked, ie the river flooded the road and they could not leave the house for a while. She was supposed to have a class yesterday but sent me a message that they can't leave the house again. However, she said she was rehearsing a new song we started playing two weeks ago. Je Te Laisserai Des Mots.

    That song she asked for, Je Te Laisserai Des Mots ( yeah, I just want to repeat the title of it once again to learn it in French) is a piece composed and performed by Patrick Watson, a Canadian singer and songwriter. That was a new name for me, but apparently, not for her. Sometimes the teachers can learn something new from the students.

    So, it happened that I started to search for other songs by this Patrick, not just that one she wanted to play... and I was so positively surprised with his work! I liked what I heard! Do you want to hear also some of his songs? If yes, here comes a really tiny selection of some YouTube videos. For those who prefer Spotify, here is also a link to browse there.

    One of the songs I liked immediately is Can't Stop Staring At The Sun. Both the music part and the video production and these dancers...

    Do you feel a little broken? It is what he asks us. But why would I ask that? It is better if we listen to his peculiar voice and his beautiful piano playing. Just let yourself time to this one.

    Now be honest and tell me, don't we all like to be lost with someone? Another song I liked very much, because of the simplicity of the piano and the whole ambience it gives. Plus the video is also pretty cool, I would like to be one of those riding the bike, with lights, at night...

    So, what do you think about Patrick Watson's music? Does it give you some goosebumps? Does it have any impact on you? I think they are so beautiful ones, and all of them can awaken some feelings and memories in us. Well, the song I played in my video, the same my student who couldn't come to her lesson also started to practice, is nothing less nice. But I will not leave the original for that one, anyway, it is the most famous song from his opus so probably you all already heard it... And I play it just slightly faster, so not to be compared please :D

    I have chosen to play it on this upright piano from my classroom on purpose. It has a bit older, rusty sound, as if I record it on my home digital piano, without background noise and just pure sound of the piano, it would not give me this natural feeling I wanted for this song.

    For the lyrics of it, please check out this link. It is the translation of the song to English from French. And if you speak French and you think that the title I will leave you words is not the right one, please let me know. I also found a translation that says I will leave you notes... Anyway, the meaning can be understood in both versions.
