golden slumbers – cover


For me, 2017 was grieving my family home, which got sold last year but also it was learning that home isn’t just a place Here’s a little video montage of me understanding that Once, there was a way To get back homeward Once there was a way To get back home Sleep, pretty darling do not cry And I will sing a lullaby Golden Slumbers Fill your eyes Smiles await you when you rise sleep pretty darling do not cry And I will sing a lullaby And I will sing a lullaby Once there was a way To get back homeward Once there was a way to get back home Sleep pretty darling do not cry and I will sing a lullaby Thank you, for a wonderful year and I’ll see you soon.

  1. It's been a year, and I'm back here again. This video, this song, her voice, all capture it so perfectly. The ups and downs, the bittersweet nostalgia for what has passed and the lingering excitement for what's to come. It perfectly encapsulates why I'm so excited to live. Even to hurt is a privilege, because it means you're living.

  2. I played this song on my headphones to my little bump as it grew, patiently waiting for my daughter to be born so this could be her lullaby. At 35 weeks pregnant, August 10th, 2018 we had to have an emergency c-section and we lost her. Now this song will remain forever hers, unable to leave my lips for the rest of my life. Thank you for such a beautiful cover. <3 It was perfect.

  3. How are u so talented wtfffffffff omlll ur soo amazing how do u capture so much emotion in a few minutesss ur so amazing i wish i was youu 😭😭

  4. I like how she didn’t credit the Beatles.

  5. even though this was posted a little over a year ago, every once and a while i’ll come back and listen. every time i do, i always ugly cry. dodie gives me so much nostalgia in a way i can’t even comprehend. 💞

  6. I'm going through the same thing you went through. My home was sold recently. Everything felt so different and we are trying to adapt to a new place and it's been hard but I know as long as I have my family everything will be the same no matter where we go.

  7. Damn, I cried too much during this. I watched this when it first came out and every time I’ve cried. It’s her voice, the home videos, the emotion, the song . Every part of this makes me cry. God I love dodie and this song. I was so happy and then not. Man, thanks for listening to my rant.

  8. No matter when I listen to this song I always cry my eyes out it’s so powerful and emotional when you sing it

  9. this video is on my study playlist which is somewhat problematic because I cry almost every time I listen to it

  10. My heart ached for you while watching this, because although I obviously didn't experience it in the way that you did, I know exactly the feeling you were trying to portray in this video. That aching painful kind of nostalgia that's almost like grieving. I've been struggling with it myself a bit lately, and you (and your team) did a really good job portraying it, so thank you, amazing job and I hope your heart has been able to heal over the last couple years 🙂

  11. i come back to this video a lot when i’m feeling really down about the loss of my mom and it brings so much comfort and honestly feels like a big warm hug from her. you posted this only a few months after she passed and it came just at the right time. thank you dodie

  12. I love this song so much💗 my mom used to sing this to me every night when I was little, i just loved hearing you sing it

  13. this reminds me of the scene in lady bird when she's in new york realizing she misses sacramento, and calls her mom </3

  14. This is simply the best cover I've ever heard. It feels me with emotion, something I've been numb to for a long time.. Thank you.

  15. Please, please, PLEASE put this on Spotify, I could listen to this every day and never get tired of it, it's so beautiful

  16. I'm currently in a mental department of a hospital and i've been listening this almost everyday and it helps me so much. I cry almost every time, but it reminds me of home.

  17. This is my favourite video. And it will always stay my favourite video. There is nothing possibly better than this. My Second favourite vid is "I am depressed today. I downloaded it and watched it 2000 times and I still enjoy it. Thank you dodie for your amazing content. I know you're not going to read this comment but i started writing and now I can't stop. I love you soo much !!❤❤you're my favourite.

  18. I bought a ukulele 5 days ago and have learned a few basic chords in hopes to prepare myself to learn Dodie's vers. Of Golden Slumbers. So far I have figured out the first 2 chords: G7sus4 and Gm7. I am struggling send help lol

  19. This song is the song I listen to to remind me of how I so wish Livy wasn't dealing with what she is dealing with. What it would be to get back home.

  20. She is not saying what The Beatles were saying, she is speaking with a voice made from the filaments above the stars and the foundations beneath the mountains.

  21. This video hit so deep to me, seeing all of your happiest moments warms my heart and makes me wish to discover my own feeling of home rather than just the house i was raised in. This makes me want to love every moment as if it was my last and to challenge myself and be the best me I can. I have so many dreams and so many adventures I want to discover.

    For me home is where you were born, but now I know that home is so much more than that. <3

  22. hello, I don't know how to put this but, thank you. I listen to this cover almost daily, I love this song and your voice is just perfect for it. I haven't really felt at home anywhere since I was young (I'm only sixteen) but this song and this video help remind me that home will come even when the buildings are gone. I don't have that yet, but one day, when I'm older maybe. Home will find me and I will find it. Thank you for giving me a little bit of home with everything you create.

  23. i have come back to this song probably hundred of times, mostly when i wanna cry and be a little nostalgic , but lately it’s been hopeful and a little sad but like i’m ready, ready to let go and move on. i love this song and video more than any other on this platform it feels so raw and real. it makes you think of all the little things, the little moments that feel so hard or wonderful or one that just suck d but like it’s all going to be okay

  24. A beautiful song like this–done with such heartfelt sentiment–makes it even more touching and genuine.

    Thank you, Dodie, for sharing this with the world…

  25. Dodie you fully succeeded in making me bawl tears, I struggle with lot of anxiety and I've lost a lot of people recently and here is the place I go to be calm and sad because people shouldn't feel bad about sadness, keep being amazing dodie xx

  26. i keep coming back to this video. i really want to make something like this for a friend of mine, i think it’s be really nice and meaningful to both of us

  27. Im going through a similar situation right now. I watched this video when it first came out and I watched it and enjoyed it but now? It holds meaning to me. I closed my eyes and let her voice engulf me and wipe my tears. AAAAA DODIE

  28. ok can i just say, i am like basically cry proof for the most part. usually the only time i ever even feel like crying is when i’m leaving my camp that i go to once a year. there are three separate camps that are by the same organization, and the same people go to them. at the end of the last one i have to leave all my best friends and i don’t see them for another nine months. i only have a few good friends near home, and leaving someone you love, especially multiple people and places that you have known and have been going to your whole life for that amount of time is actually really sad, and usually if i cry it’s either when i’m leaving camp or when i’m at home missing my friends there. but for some reason this song cover actually made me cry. it was just a tear or two, but it made my nose run and it gave me the chills. you truly are an incredible singer dodie and i know you probably won’t see this but i just want you to know that i love you and your music. your voice literally sounds like an angel (lol why is that an expression no one knows what an angel sounds like). you are such a beautiful person inside and out and you are an incredible songwriter and i just love you so much. i hope you have an amazing day (and if dodie doesn’t see this then reader have a good day as well:), and i hope you learn how to love again and how to feel loved. because you truly are loved in this world, whether by family, friends, or even just strangers passing by that see your kindness. you truly mean something to anyone that knows you in any way. and most importantly, God loves you regardless of if you love him. i hope that even if you don’t believe, at least try to see truth in His love. 1st Peter 1:24-25 says “for all flesh (earthly things) is as grass, and all glory of man as the flower of grass. the grass withereth, and the flower thereof falleth away; but the word of the Lord endureth forever.” when the Lord comes back we will return to our dead loved ones, they will no longer be dead, and we will live forever with God. have an amazing day, and remember to love others and know that you are loved, and know that i am praying for you and that if no one else in the word cares, i care and i will continue to care. love you ♡
    also that got really off track and sorry for the long comment but just felt like sharing. ♡♡♡
