“I see a red door and I want it painted black
No colors anymore I want them to turn black”
written by Keith Richards / Mick Jagger
Some time ago, I heard some familiar-sounding tunes coming from my daughter’s room. Although I knew the lyrics, it sounded a bit different. It was much faster and the voice a lot higher than I had it in my mind. Surprisingly, she runs it over and over again. So, I went over to her and asked her, if she would know, how old that song is. She started guessing with 10 years than 20. before she gave up.
It’s from 1966!!! So it’s more than 50 years old!!!!
OK, she was listening to the Nightcore version of the Chiara cover which was used for the movie “The last witch hunter”. The Chiara version certainly is way younger. But, I had asked for the ‘original’ version.
In case you want to refresh your memories, I’d recommend to check out also the Chiara album version. This cover is quite good in my opinion as it transports the song from the 1960s to our current time without throwing it into the blender first. The Australian choreographer Anne Murray produced a great dance video to the song. It’s also available on Youtube.
