A Christmas present

Firmly against any limitations linked to my medical condition, we decided, together with the delightful Gella, to offer all of you a message of love, companionship and compassion, our take on Bryan Ferry's cover of "Johnny and Mary" by the late (and regretted) Robert Palmer.

By slowing down the song significantly, and playing it with electro master Todd Terje on pure synths, crooning those words of understanding and love, such as:

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

If your treatment brings you down, and you tire easily, this song is for you. May next year bring all of us comfort and healing, may 2017 bring renewed strength and let's all together defeat this illness!

Lyrics:

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 is 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
