Not Perfect (This Is My World)

February 9, 2013 8:51 PM

Cover of a song by Tim Minchin.

I love Tim's stuff. This tune is one of his more serious offerings. He has a new arrangement of it (hence the double name) for piano and orchestra that I really dug, so I tried to make a version for guitar and voice only. Hope ya like it.

This is very nice.

This week I had something bad happen in my personal life. I came home and got on YouTube and it suggested I listen to Tim Minchin's version, and it just got me. Tears from almost the first word. So seeing a cover of the song here just a couple of days later seems fitting. Good choice in music.

Today I've been obsessively listening to this song, too.

Thank you for the kind words, it means a lot to me. I've been struggling with similar personal challenges, and this tune is one of my go-to panaceas at the end of the day also.

Hang in there.
