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.

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 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.

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.

Keep safe, wish you the best. We need you and your music, girls...

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.

Thank you so much for sending us video's of your music! It helps lifts our spirits and a hope for a time so we all can get back to our normal lives. Listening to the Mona Lisa Twins is a very important part of my day and it gets me thru this crazy time we currently live in. Please stay healthy and keep the love and spirit of your music coming to us! God bless you both and your family

Years ago when I was really into my piano lessons, I use to attend many piano recitals around the city put on by local artists or sometimes a world renowned pianist would come to town to give a recital. I loved seeing the masters do their keyboard magic with those blazing fingers. Seeing Mona and Lisa do their masterful intricate guitar playing here reminds me of that, as well as their many other MLT Club exclusive Duo Sessions.

Really love these Duo Session performances by MLT! It's like front row seats to their live recital! An intimate setting with just Mona and Lisa and their guitars.

You excel in everything you do, its always a joy to listen to your interpretation of great songs.

Ich bin schon seit Jahren MLT-Fan, doch als ich las: "Wish you were here-Cover" dachte ich zuerst bitte nicht noch eine Coverversion. Aber ihr habt das so toll gemacht und dem Lied ein paar wunderschöne Nuancen geschenkt und es ist wundervoll gesungen und gespielt - Dankeschön und bleibt gesund in dieser schlimmen Zeit.
Greetings from Cologne, Germany

This song is a great song to cover and you ladies have done a wonderful job at that! Thank you so much for doing this song, i remember when this first came out and it was always one of my favorite songs by Pink Floyd back in the day. With the world in the shape it is in right now? You ladies have a way of making our life a little better and brighter knowing you put so much love and support in your music and the vocals are spot on! Such beautiful harmonies! Thank you again and god bless

I am so enamored of you two that my heart breaks each time one of your performances end

Your version really stand out and captivate the listener more than the original for me. There is so much feeling and passion there in your playing. Truly moving. The finest rendition of this Pink Floyd masterpiece bar none! Not only are you both the finest vocalists around these days, but the finest guitarists too! Thank you for your joy in these gloomy days!

You once again showed that everything you do besides being wonderful, is a true lesson in respect for good music and its creators. Thank you for this gift

Ladies,
What an incredible and uplifting Cover, and Gift you have given us.
We have all been in the need for a pick me up, and you all delivered and then some.
A cover that surpasses the original, IMO.
The magic of The MonaLisa Twins again shines through.
If you all happen to read this, I want to bring something to your attention. The past week I have read or seen a few comments that are hoping you will produce a LP soon. I have told those about Orange, but you all might just want to mention it on Social Media. I'm sure there would be several orders.
Have a healthy and groovy week as well as your team

That was a lovely cover of "Wish You were here". I have been trying to play it for so long - and failing.
You made me realise what was always missing from Floyd, and me - the female voice.
Why didn't they spot that?

Angesichts der zur Zeit ablaufenden Sch....., ist ein neues Lied von Euch genau das, was ich jetzt brauchte!
Danke Mona! Danke Lisa!

Simply... Stellar and heart-felt... Evokes emotions and during this ConVid-19 pandemic, it kind of fits into the moment, as I wish I could visit and see family /friends in person, not online.... But this rendition of yours with the MLTBuzzGroovy Magic does indeed help me cope with the Cabin Fever Blues... Thankyou for putting a smile to my face, sunshine into an isolated spiritsoul, Calming my anxiety during this time of stress, etc💜🌞☮️

Great work girls! Love the guitar work, nice blend with the 12 string on capo. Stay well, this will pass.

are you ever going to tour the states?

Sam R. Staley

Great cover -- one of my favorite songs. Perfect arrangement for your own interpretation, too. Is the necklace an explicit homage to the Dark Side of the Moon cover?

Yes i love it

Wish you were here Mona and Lisa, but I know the travel restrictions would make that difficult. Maybe in better times. Beautiful version. 💛❤️

In Philadelphia Pennsylvania too!

I suggest taking a look at “If” from Atom Heart Mother and “Free Four” from Obscured by Clouds as two Floyd songs you could cover.

Michael Yearout

Been listening to you ladies since(drive my car).please come to Colo. Springs, Colo. On your next tour.
