100 Songs: 4/100 - The Boxer

Song Four: The Boxer (Simon & Garfunkel cover by Jonne)



In the clearing stands a boxer
And a fighter by his trade
And he carries the reminders
Of every glove that laid him down
Or cut him till he cried out
In his anger and his shame
“I am leaving, I am leaving”
But the fighter still remains


Jonne is the vocalist from folk metal band Korpiklaani, but in 2013 he launched his acousitc solo album which is influenced by Shamanism and his Sami roots. I was thrilled to see this title on the playlist as I love the original song! And this is a great cover.

(that is Jonne in my icon, from a photo I took of him at Bloodstock one year. I later met him after listening to Europe's headlining set - he'd been right behind me the whole time!)
