eAeon - The Blower’s Daughter (originally by Damien Rice)
Few days ago I came across a stash of live recordings & demos of covers and unreleased songs by Mot/eAeon and…. oh god. This is eAeon’s cover of Damien Rice’s The Blower’s Daughter. Thought I’d share because it’s such a wonderful cover!
My mistress’ eyes are nothing like the sun; Coral is far more red than her lips’ red; If snow be white, why then her breasts are dun; If hairs be wires, black wires grow on her head. I have seen roses damask’d, red and white, But no such roses see I in her cheeks; And in some perfumes is there more delight Than in the breath that from my mistress reeks. I love to hear her speak, yet well I know That music hath a far more pleasing sound; I grant I never saw a goddess go; My mistress, when she walks, treads on the ground: And yet, by heaven, I think my love as rare As any she belied with false compare.
