The blog Aristotle’s Feminist Subject takes a look at James Taylor’s version of “Sadie” from his new album Covers and links it to the Portuguese lyrics of “Only A Dream In Rio” from That’s Why I’m Here. A translation of those lyrics are included.

    Thanks for the link. The whole album is terrific!

    But one of the most interesting tunes on James Taylor’s Covers is Leonard Cohen’s “Suzanne.” Kate Saunders interviews the real-life Suzanne (Verdal McCallister); and the conversation gets entitled “SUZANNE: You Probably Think This Song Is about You.” Now, if that’s not reminiscent of James Taylor and Carly Simon, then I don’t know what is. I wonder if JT thought of Carly as he sings “Suzanne”–I sure did. And Yo Yo Ma plays the cello for the tune, so it’s worth the listen, indeed.
