"Wild Is the Wind" as written by Dimitri Tiomkine, Ned Washington and Ned Washington....
Love me, love me. Say you do.
Let me fly away with you.
We are creatures of the wind,
Wild is the wind.
Give me more than one caress,
Satisfy this hungriness.
We are creatures of the wind,
Wild is the wind.
You touched me, I hear the sound
Of mandolins. You kissed me,
With your kiss my life begins.
Like a leaf clings to a tree,
Baby, please, cling to me.
We are creatures of the wind,
Wild is the wind.
You touched me, I hear the sound
Of mandolins. And you kissed me,
With your kiss my life begins.
Love me, love me. Say you do.
Let me fly away with you.

    General CommentThe song was originally recorded by Johnny Mathis in 1956, for a film also called "Wild Is The Wind", but it was made *most* famous by Nina Simone. It's Nina Simone's version that Cat Power is covering here.

    General CommentTry Nina Simone's version it's so vibrant it tears you in pieces and with voice that can meltdown walls. And if you do, pay some notice to the pianoplayer going wonderfully berserk on the tune as if he is playing the tune by him self! But strangely it creates some blend of two wastly separate styles into something timeless... A Must have...

    As for the version with Cat power, I havent heard it yet but ill make sure it's not for long until i do, beacuse the song is one of my most treasured ones.
