Johnny and Mary

Почему я узнал об этой песне только спустя 34 года? Сегодня я услышал её по радио в исполнении Брайана Ферри и норвежского ди-джея Тодда Терйе:




Оказывается, кто её только ни пел - начиная с Тины Тернер, Статус Кво и Плацебо, а заканчивая какими-то немецкими группами. Википедия упоминает 18 каверов.

При этом оригинальное Палмеровское исполнение по сегодняшним меркам, по-моему, ужасно - здравствуйте, восьмидесятые:



ROBERT PALMER
"Johnny And Mary"

Johnny's always running around
Trying to find certainty
He needs all the world to confirm
That he ain't lonely
Mary counts the walls
Knows he tires easily

Johnny thinks the world would be right
If it could buy truth from him
Mary says he changes his mind
More than a woman
But she made her bed
Even when the chance was slim

Johnny says he's willing to learn
When he decides he's a fool
Johnny says he'll live anywhere
When he earns time to
Mary combs her hair
Says she should be used to it

Mary always hedges her bets
She never knows what to think
She says that he still acts like he's
Being discovered
Scared that he'll be caught
Without a second thought
Running around

Johnny feels he's wasting his breath
Trying to talk sense to her
Mary says he's lacking a real
Sense of proportion
So she combs her hair
Knows he tires easily

Johnny's always running around
Trying to find certainty
He needs all the world to confirm
That he ain't lonely
Mary counts the walls
Says she should be used to it

Johnny's always running around
Running around
