Fool To Cry

So apparently there is this show on HBO called "Girls" that is getting rave reviews or something? I don't know, I don't have HBO. But I do know that the soundtrack has at least one good song!
I like The Rolling Stones, and honestly I thought I've heard most of their stuff, guess I was wrong. I hadn't heard "Fool to Cry" before last week. I heard the Tegan and Sara cover first also.
Seems to be a trend lately, hearing the cover before the original. I love both versions. I love Rolling Stones ballads. They never got enough if any airplay.
I chose this cover for a couple reasons, one its new and its really good. Mostly because as I was driving home from Grandma's house, just picked up Piper, this song came on in the car. Towards the very end of the song I swear I hear Piper trying to sing it. The song does repeat the word "Daddy" in it alot, so maybe that is what intrigued her or subconsciously started her on her love of music, I don't know?
It was a really sweet moment for me. She's not even 2 years old yet. I've had a couple "run ins" with music and her. When she was born Adele's album 21 had come out and 'Someone like you' became an instant favorite. When I help her I would in my of course very pathetic voice sing that to her in her ear kinda thing.
Well couple months later I had music playing on my phone and 'someone like you' comes on and she freaks out! I had to give her my phone and she sat there just staring at it. I knew.
Anyways, later tonight I played 'Fool to cry' on my phone and she had to take it and hold it up to her head/ear like she was having a conversation. She was listening. I was hoping she would try and sing again but it never happened. Maybe a few more times?

Tegan and Sara covering The Rolling Stones "Fool to Cry":

Tegan and Sara have an awesome cover of Bruce Springsteen's 'Dancing in the Dark' if you wanna check it out.
