Wish You Were Here – Pink Floyd Cover

We've been into Pink Floyd since our teenage years. We even went to see Roger Water's "The Wall" tour back in 2013 and left the stadium mesmerised and floating on a natural high.

Yet we have never covered one of their songs.

We sure learned the solo parts for "Another Brick In The Wall" and worked hard on the smooth bends and fluent runs, but most of their songs didn't lend themselves too well to be covered by 2 guitarists or a 4 piece rock 'n' roll band.

But then there's "Wish You Were Here".

A song with a purported backstory so sad that it's hard not to get emotional when reading up on it. A tragic masterpiece, partially inspired by their lost band member Syd Barrett (or at least open to interpretation).

We thought it would be a great choice for a Duo Session ...

We hope you like this one! ♥

Stay groovy!

In light of the current situation ...

We hope everyone's been staying happy, safe and healthy!

We know many, many people are stuck at home now, browsing the web, following the situation and development of all this craziness.

We hope you are getting on as best as you can and that you’re looking after yourself ♥

We are spending as much time as we can recording new stuff in our studio at home and working on new music, YouTube videos and also more exclusive MLT Club content. Everything that doesn't require us leaving the house 🙂

We also thought about what we could do to lift the spirits in this situation. As we got some encouraging reviews (see down below) for the music and other content on our membership site we decided to give you a discount for joining it.

You can get access to a ton of MLT Club exclusive videos and photos, more Duo Sessions, Cavern Club live recordings, games and quizzes, behind-the-scenes videos, our "Jukebox" to stream all our albums, a forum where you can ask us questions or chat with other fans, etc.

If that's something you would like to do, you can now get 50% OFF the first month (£5 / $6.5 / €6) after which it will renew monthly for the regular price.

You can cancel or pause the subscription anytime. If you know already that you want to stay for the longer term and don't want to bother with monthly renewals you can get an extra discount of 10% if you join for a full year.

Here are some reviews of MLT Club members:

"As we all go through some uncertain times globally, there is nothing like putting on the MLT Jukebox and chilling out. It’s good for the soul."

J.R.

"I don’t know how MLT find the time to do all the special things they do for their individual Club members. Just the ‘feels’ you get from that alone is priceless. You get so much more as noted on their info pages which alone is more than worth the membership."

D.H.

"I regret not joining The Beatles Fan Club. Not making that mistake again! I have bought lots of the monthly newsletters from way back then, but I can keep track of your amazing music now. Thank you and hello from Nashville!"

L.R.

"Without a doubt the best deal. And best of all, you’re supporting REAL MUSIC by real musicians playing real instruments with a passion. There’s nothing these days quite like the MLT Experience in my opinion and for such a low cost. It’s a blast to be a member."

R.M.

"In todays world there are not many things you can count on to be completely consistent, joyful and inspiring. Becoming part of the MLT club brings you deeper into their happy world. You become part of the MLT family in a closer way than you would otherwise. I am thoroughly enjoying my membership and highly recommend it to everyone reading this. You will not be disappointed – I promise you!"

E.B.

That's all from us today! We hope you and your loved ones are getting on as best as you can and that you’re looking after yourself ♥


Much love and keep your groovy,

Mona & Lisa

I'm blown away by the sheer precision you two bring to any recording, be it original or cover. Having followed so many performing songwriters in the last 25 years, I'm keenly aware of the countless hours required to iron out mistakes. And hear it shows... beautifully!

I very recently discovered you on YouTube during my COVID-19 isolation. I am completely blown away by your talent and uplifting covers and fantastic original songs. I've watched most of your videos, some many times. You are fantastic and and you have brought me joy during my isolation with your music and videos. I have also been spending some time uploading some cover songs to YouTube during this time, including several Beatles covers. I also have some videos of some original songs on YouTube. If you're at all interested, you can find my YouTube channel by typing in "John Clayton Dear Prudence" into the search bar on YouTube to find my cover of that song, and then you can see my other uploaded videos. I'm afraid you've got yourself another devoted life long fan! Stay safe and keep making your beautiful music. My name is John and I live in New Jersey, USA, just outside of New York City.

This was my experience too! I'm 66, and I was a mere 8 years old when a neighbor kid named Paul introduced me to Beatles music. Hearing the Twins cover then in a fresh, new set of recordings has eased my mind during the COVID-19 crisis as well as my first year of recovery from a right-side stroke. A credit to both the the Beatles and Austria!

Lovely, as usual! I'm stuck at home, and you are bringing me a ray of light to live by... 🙂

Great cover. Many memories when this album came out. Was still in high school. Hitting concerts at least once a month.

I hope this finds you both safe. Been listening to you now since you both had the same hair color in San Francisco. The world needs your music.

Hunckered down in Winfield, Missouri USA.

Ever Since the first time I posted about both of you I have been amazed by your talent. I understand the hard work that's behind it. Every musical story that both of you perform makes it a bit easier to enjoy life. Especially in light of what's happening now. Be careful, look after each other and above all, enjoy. Take it to the limit!

I'm in Melbourne, Australia and have never heard of the Mona Lisa Twins before. Google popped up a link to your Wish You Were Here cover tonight, one of my all time favourite songs, and it brought me to tears. Stay safe, stay home!! and look after each other.
