One of those songs that I missed a few years ago. From 2013 this is Noah and the Whale with their single "Lifetime". Two years after this came out the band split up.

My favorite songs by Noah and the Whale:

1. Tonight's the Kind of Night
2. There Will Come a Time
3. Lifetime
4. Five Years Time
5. Life Goes On

While My Guitar Gently Weeps



The BeatlesApple Corps. & Cirque du Soleil have released this new video of the famous George Harrison song “While My Guitar Gently Weeps”.

The video is laid an acoustic arrangement of the Harrison song with most of the original instrumentation and vocals by the other Beatles left out. In 2006, producer George Martin added in a new string section to make this rock tune sound mostly like a light piece of classical music. The track was used as part of Cirque de Soleil's Beatles Las Vegas show and included with the Fab Four's "Love" album.

The end result is a beautiful ethereal piece that rivals Paul McCartney’s “Eleanor Rigby” and other light orchestral works.

The video itself features one of the dancers from Cirque du Soleil which celebrates their 10th year as a Beatles Las Vegas attraction.

The original version of "While My Guitar Gently Weeps" first appeared on The Beatles "White Album" in 1968. It has been recorded by many other artists since.
