I've been practicing Yesterday by Paul McCartney and John Lennon.
It's interesting to think about what you believe was the initial intent of a song or performance, and then consider how it applies to much broader issues facing humanity. Consider for instance, the lyrics of Yesterday, through a metoo lens, or through an environmental lens.
It's also fun to look up various versions of a song covered by other well-known singers. Check out Tom Jones and Tammy Wynette.
My version's still a work in progress, taking different takes, and playing with phrasing.
Practicing other people’s songs. Thinking about how lyrics mean different things over time. Like yesterday through a timesup lens even though I believe the original intention was a breakup song or song about greater longing for times past.
