Lover You Should Have Come Over


"My kingdom for a kiss upon her shoulder ..."

An amazing performance by Jeff Buckley. Note how his silly antics before the song contrast with the intensity of his performance. Jeff threw himself into the Mississippi river shortly after this.

I think it is clear that he was a man who had trouble abiding the depth of emotions he felt. His music was a way to confront his inner self. But, music is not everything.
