One Of The Most Beautiful Things In Existence – This Is Unique – The Beautiful Project – Issue No. 2

The above video is of Marianne Faithfull performing a quite extraordinary piece of music, the song ‘As Tears Go By’.  It is one of the most beautiful songs I have ever heard, being sung by an exquisitely beautiful young woman doing a remarkably beautiful performance of it.  It is sublime.  Surprisingly, this song is not famous, is rarely played on any of the major radio stations that I know of, and yet it is one of the most sublime things I have ever seen or heard.  That the song expresses intense gratitude, reverence, joy and consecration to and about life by inversion is one of it’s most intense and remarkable qualities, and something that is not done in any other song I can think of.
