Goodbye blue sky

First of all, fantastic song, and the song is, of course, from the album "The Wall", first cd. I've always liked this song, but I had this 'scary experience' with the song a few years ago..
I had just bought a dvd, Roger Waters The Wall live in Berlin, from 1990, and I knew that I was up for a treat!! When the show first started, I didn't know that Roger had invited all these guest artists, but I thought that it had to be great anyways!! ;)

Well, the show went on, and I liked the most of it! Many good artists that I thought did a great job!! BUT, there was one BIG disapointment!!!
You all have probably figured out that the disapointment were during this song...
And you are all correct!!

I have nothing against Joni Mitchell, but the way she made this song 'her own' was just wrong.. WRONG!
When I watch dvd concerts, I always sing along (a good reason why I should watch them alone!), but when they started to play this song, I could hardly recognize it... I couldn't sing along, cause I had no idea of what she was doing...

Now I'm being mean, and I will post the song here... Be aware.. It's not good..
To show the different, I will also post the normal, good, fantastic and amazing version!!!

And now to something completly different!
Or not! I just have to say that when they play this song on the "The Wall" tour now, they do a great job!! The animation is great!!
The song is kinda' touching.. It is in fact about when the germans invaded Britain, during the world war..

I will end this tonight with a fun-fact!
In the beginning of the song, there is a kid saying, "Look mummy, there's an aeroplane up in the sky".. Guess who it is!?
It's the lovely Harry Waters! Rogers son :) I actually met him in the break at a gig in Germany!!
Harry Waters, me and my boyfirend <3
