Jack and Jill
« on: November 18, 2020, 08:33:15 PM »
Jewel performed a song on Instagram live tonight called Jack and Jill.

I tried capturing/downloading, but I don't know if it worked. I don't get any video, and the audio plays at the beginning, but it seems like it glitches on my computer. Anyone else successful?

Here's what I got: https://mega.nz/file/6FcmgDYA#7B1e03FtTiKBaD3RRs86s30r8ZLtcFEARYXi6KCuNIg

I converted the song portion to AAC format for easier listening:

You have the intro with really pretty guitar playing, the song itself, and then an alternate hook (that everyone listening said they thought was a better one than the one she sang).

Lyrics:

Jack and Jill went up the hill
No friends, no rice to spill
But there, before God, they bet it all

Jack had pock marks on his skin
Jill was over the hill,
but looking for a new beginning
They had no golden band
Just hormones and a plan
But plans don't always work out like they should
Like you hoped they would
In life's endless flow
So it goes...

But Jack and Jill, they did not cry
No existential angst, no saying, "Why God, oh why?"
No self-pity or pride
They simply re-built their lives

But life don't always work out like it should
Like you hoped it would
And life's endless flow
Oh, so it goes...

Pinballs in God's laughing machine
They bumped through life, smiling
Too simple to know hardship can grow
But hardships don't always work out like they should
Like you feared they would
And life's endless flow
So it goes...

So Jack and Jill on their porch swing
A double-side King and Queen
They love like lotto winners
Eating frozen TV dinners
Cause God takes care of drunks and children
And those who grow in a sense inside of them
While all the smart folks
Waste all those brains
On ironic jokes they made
Dismantling sacred things
From the cogs of their misery machines
Running by happiness into the arms of bitterness

Well, Jack and Jill, they have the last laugh
And laughter always works out like it should
Like you hoped it would
And life's endless flow
Oh, so it goes...
So it goes...


Alternate Hook:
But life don't always work out like it should
Like you hoped it would
And life's endless flow
Is that bad luck?
Well, heaven knows...

The big MP4 cuts out entirely after a few seconds right as Jewel mentions not watching the news. :/

But the song capture is great - thanks, Wikiman!!

Audacity will open the mp4 if you want to hear the rest, Jess

That worked, thanks!  I hope 501 makes the cut over Sassy.  :pray:

Also, why are a bunch of insta-randos given the opportunity to chime in on a song request list that cost us 150 bucks to get on? That better not have any sway. :angry:
