I don't like Foreigner, Journey and other 'classic rock' bands and 'power ballads' but this is amazing ! Shouldn't it have been called 'I've been waiting for a BOY like you' ?

Tanya Donelly and Belly did the same with their beautiful cover of the Gram Parsons/Flying Burrito Brothers song "Hot Burrito #1"...

But I don't want no one but you to love me
No, I wouldn't lie
You know I'm not that kind of guy

beautiful. touching. haunting. i am always impressed about the feelings, heather put into her voice!👍👍 just the piano fits very well - catches the fragility she expressed.🎹

i imagine right now, heather playing the song alone on the piano, next year on stage. i think i will cry.💙

i am a big fan since the year 2000 and heathers music is a shelter and helper in my life. can't live without it.🌸🌸🌊🌊

Same here V, seeing Heather live on festivals in summer and indoor gigs in fall has become a certainty in my life since 1994 ... Too bad we had to miss it due to Covid. Whenever I see Heather live, be it in Brussels, Amsterdam, Koln, Paris or whatever, it feels like coming home. Sometimes I think 'what the hell am I doing here ?', but when the concert starts I say to myself 'it's ok, I'm home'.

Quote from Heather:

"I’ve always loved how dreamy and romantic this song is - it’s one of my guilty pleasure tracks! And the way the melody takes off in the chorus gets me every time. For my version, I wanted to strip it back from all those big synths, and just play it really simply on the piano so you could feel the aching in the song in a new very intimate way. Instead of changing the gender, like I often do with a cover, it felt really special and poignant to sing this from one girl to another."

I actually liked this way more than I expected. Her voice is particularly beautiful in the choruses.

PS: How narrow minded to think she should change the gender reference.

Well, she did before, for example in I'm On Fire, Norwegian Wood, and The Circle Game. So it was surely surprising she didn't change it now as well.

Don't understand this PS.

Heather from Instagram: " Sometimes I change the gender in a man’s song, but it felt really special to sing this from one girl to another. "

Yeah, I know what she said. I was responding to the person who suggested it should be changed to “boy” on Heather’s version.

It was me who 'suggested' it. Well, I was surprised she didn't change it to 'boy' but now it has an interesting angle. I'm not homophobic or whatever and I like this song.

I think there is a difference between demanding/suggesting and wondering...

I also wonder if it is Heather swimming. It probably is her (low budget clip).
