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. I’ve known this song for a while but dodies version feels so warm and like I wanna wrap up in a blanket read and listen to this

  2. This past February, my family and I moved out of the house I spent the first 17 years of my life in. This past August, I moved out of state to go to college, 2 hours away from the only place I had ever lived. There was a time I struggled with leaving my home, but now it’s almost December and I’ve realized that home doesn’t have to be one place. I have a home in my family’s new house. I have a home at college. Home doesn’t have to be a place, it’s where you feel happy, where you feel loved. Rewatching this video, I’m happy to have learned what dodie was talking about in this video.

  3. you wont see this but, im sitting on my bed.
    in my new apartment that i share with my friends.
    home doesn't quite feel like here yet, and because oh my home life, my parents house doensn't feel like home either.
    but i find home in so many people.
    your video, as simple and wonderful as it is, made me sob.
    so hard.
    simply because it reminded me that home isn't a house, but the people you surround yourself in that make you feel at home.
    thank you.

  4. Dodie,
    You have no idea just how much this cover has gotten me through. 2018 was a rough year for me and it's about to come to an end. I've been through a lot of emotional and situational issues and you've been there.
    I've never met you and vice versa, but you're my best friend on a different level. I listen to this cover when I'm going through a rough time and it always gives me a look into the door that I've forgotten I'd closed.
    Happy New Year Dodie
    I love you

  5. This song usually helps me figure things out, recently it's been hard to think. When I heard her sing it I realised that I'm not the only one who has problems.

  6. I am not at home anywhere, even at my childhood home. Having moved countries at 14 and then again at 18, my sense of “home” is a bit… off. It’s certainly something that makes me feel cold inside.
    I finish university in a few months and I will move once more to a country I’ve lived in before but a different city.
    This change comes at a time where I need it and I can’t wait but I will miss my room so so much. It makes me sad I’ll never wake up to the forest I do now again…

  7. This is one of the sweetest songs on the Abbey Road album. Nice job.
    "Boy …you're gonna carry that weight. Carry that weight a long time." etc.
    You got me singing the whole second side of the album in my mind.

  8. u know, every time i come back to this it just hits me hard. not only did she cover my favorite beatles song, but she also somehow managed to capture how i’ve been feeling lately perfectly. i’ve never seen anyone do that before. here’s to u, dodie

  9. A year ago? Really? It's incredible how much you've grown since then. Like, my god i remember watching this a year ago and sobbing so much because my heart hurt so much. Now I sob for the heart the was in such pain a year ago. I've grown over this year. (As have you obviously congrats on the EP) 2017 was shockimg, 2018 was hard and 2019 will be brilliant

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

  12. 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 😭😭

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

  14. 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. 💞

  15. 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.

  16. 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.

  17. 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 🙂

  18. 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

  19. 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

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

  21. 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.

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

  23. 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.

  24. 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.

  25. 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

  26. 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.

  27. 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.

  28. 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

  29. 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.
