One day they’ll probably make a movie out of all of this …
“Believe Me Natalie,” The Killers
“Nikita,” Elton John
“Darling Nikki,” Foo Fighters
“Darling Nikki,” Prince and The Revolution
“Noelle,” Daniel Amos
“Oliver’s Army,” Elvis Costello
“Something Like Olivia,” John Mayer
“Otis and Marlena,” Joni Mitchell
“Miss Otis Regrets,” Ella Fitzgerald
“Miss Otis Regrets,” Kirsty MacColl
And I don’t have this version, but here’s one more “Miss Otis Regrets” — from Captain Jack.
No video link for Prince because the Purple One doesn’t like YouTube. But at least the video of his appearance in the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame George Harrison tribute is back up. The first three and half minutes of that rendition of “While My Guitar Gently Weeps” features a lovely performance from an all-star bunch of Wilburys before Prince steps forward and … well, just watch.
Legend has it that guitar never landed. It’s still hovering somewhere over Cleveland.
