{I Can't Make You Love Me by Bon Iver}

Tuesday, May 24, 2011


In case you missed Bon Iver's performance on Jimmy Fallon last night here you go. It was lovely to see Justin cover Bonnie Raitt's, "I Can't Make You Love Me". I remember listening to this song on my walkman before falling asleep when I was in the 6th grade. Her "Luck of the Draw" album changed my little 11 year old life forever. Enjoy.

Beautiful! In other news, until now I thought his name was pronounced completely different. Is Jimmy Fallon saying his name the right way or is that a joke? My inquiring mind wants to know :)

jimmy is pronouncing it correctly. bon iver is french for 'good winter' which is why it sounds like bone evair :)

Holy shamoley. I love him.
I did miss it the other night, but I'm glad I got to see it here! I love singing that song to my twinner when she's annoyed with me. Or when my mom's cat ignores me. Or on behalf of twinner's dog when he's feeling neglected. Or any time, really. I sing it at every possible opportunity.
Of course, his version is a bit better than mine...
Thanks for sharing it!

so glad to hear that i'm not the only girl who was a pre-teen and obsessed with this song. our local station hosted "the quiet storm" every night and this song was played frequently. i recall crying myself to sleep while singing it a time or two. funny thing is that i'm positive i had no reason for the tears and definitely didn't get the power of the lyrics. not even the loss of a middle-school boyfriend to lament. i'd like to think i lost that dramatic flair along the way. hmmm...
