Rambling on: Something in the way she moves

Something in the way she moves

She has that 'je ne sais quoi' thing about her. All it takes to cast away the monday blues is to hold her hand driving back home from dinner. I needed this reassurance this contact to realize that the rest of the week would be a breeze.

Hey hey, isn't that no. from James Taylor's? That's great one, isn't that. And I also loved his "Carolina in my mind" in the same album. Though, the point under discussion could be different here :) but as it just clicked, thought to see if the title of your post has any resemblance with Taylor's no.

This track is actually by the Beatles. The lead vocals are by George Harrison one of the few leads by him. Whatever lead vocals he ever did, the songs are memorable. I did not know that this was ever re-made after it was released in the late 60's. Google tell me that James Taylor did cover it but since he is a truly original song writer, he has not ripped off the song, he has just borrowed the first line and remainder of the song is different and his own. I am a big Beatles fan but I also love James Taylor so I will look for the track that you have mentioned.

FYI - James Taylor version is :
There's something in the way she moves
Or looks my way, or calls my name
That seems to leave this troubled world behind
And if I'm feeling down and blue
Or troubled by some foolish game
She always seems to make me change my mind

And the original by the Beatles is :
Something in the way she moves
Attracts me like no other lover
Something in the way she moves me
I don't want to leave her now
You know I believe and how
(beautiful acoustic guitar follows)

The line from James Taylor that resonates is "I’ve seen fire and I’ve seen rain, I’ve seen sunny days that I thought would never end, I’ve seen lonely times when I could not find a friend, But I always thought that I’d see you again"
