Melanie - Shine On Fake 7" (1999)



Actually, this is not completely a fake single. "Shine On" (also called "Shine On (Her Hymn)" or "The Sun Will Shine On You And Me") has been released on a single only but as a B-side of a "Lay Down" / "Ruby Tuesday" A-side EP, the latter being reorchestrated in 3 (???) versions. What a stupid idea! "Shine On" is a great song that was worth a release by itself. So I do it now. With a do-it-myself cover sleeve (beautiful picture) that is inspired by the lyrics. On the B-side, I included a full orchestral version of "How Can I Help You Say Goodbye", a cover from a hit of 1994 that could be found on Silver Aniversary (here) in an acoustic version. Here the arrangements are quite gorgeous. Both make a delight of a single. Never too late to discover it. I know many among you are not enthousiastics as I am about Melanie. They're wrong. She's a hell of a singer and I pity you if you don't see why. We've not the same neurons and synapses between our ears and our limbic system, that's all. For the other ones enjoy it here.



Shine On. If I should flow through the rivers of darkness If I should drown in the deep salt sea I’d like to cling to the notions I harbour Until the sun shines down on me And when our names have been forgotten And our faces all washed clean If we hold onto one another The sun will shine on you and me The sun will shine on you me, I know And the truth shall set us free, oh yeah When our names have been forgotten And our faces all washed clean Aww, the sun will shine (shine on me) The sun will shine on you and me (shine on me) The sun will shine (shine on me) The sun shine on you and me (shine on me) When all mankind stands up united On that day we shall be free When we can trust in one another The sun is gonna shine on you and me The sun is gonna shine on you and me The sun will shine on you me, I know And the truth shall set us free, oh yeah When our names have been forgotten And our faces all washed clean Oh The sun will shine (shine on me) The sun will shine on you and me (shine on me) Yeah shine, shine The sun will shine (shine on me) The sun will shine yeah, yeah, yeah…
