Eric Clapton Plays – For the First Time – “Tears In Heaven”

For the people that do not know the story behind the song; “Tears in Heaven” is a song by Eric Clapton and Will Jennings, from the 1991 Rush film soundtrack. The song was written about the pain and loss Clapton felt following the death of his four-year-old son, Conor.  In an interview with Sue Lawley in 1992, Clapton said of the song “There is a song that I’ve written for a movie, but in actual fact it was in the back of my head but it didn’t really have a reason for being until I was scoring this movie which I did a little while ago and then it sort of had a reason to be.  And it is a little ambiguous because it could be taken to be about Conor but it also is meant to be part of the film.  Conor fell from a window of a 53rd-floor New York apartment building owned by his mother’s friend on March 20, 1991.  Clapton arrived at the apartment shortly after the accident.

This was just about a year after that happened.

One of the Most Hilarious Pranks You’ll Ever See

This video is hilarious but it’s especially hilarious if you speak French because the lyrics during this whole video are all kind of cheesy love.  The translation is:

“I would have liked to hold your hand a little longer.. I would have wished that my sorrow lasts but a moment… and you know, I hope at least, that you hear me… I would have liked to hold your hand a little longer… I wanted to say that I am proud… to be your friend… just a moment.”

Jay Pharoah Acts Out a Secret Meeting Between Black Comedians

Nailed them all, especially the mannerisms.  He turned his hands into Chris Rock hands.

Jays the real deal.  I really only view SNL as a springboard for stand-out comedians.  I dont think they know what to do with him yet outside of SNL though.  If this guy has range that extends into the serious/sad realm much like Robin Williams then hes set.  As of right now hes untested as far as I know.
