I heard it sung by David Gilmoure with a piano accompanyment.

I comitted it to memory so that I would always have it.

What album was it on? Do you have an MP3 of it? BTW, for those of you not familiar with this sonnet, it is provided below. Shakespeare often wrote in his sonnets how his lines would preserve the beauty of his love for all time. Looks like he was right.


Shall I compare thee to a summer's day?
Thou art more lovely and more temperate:
Rough winds do shake the darling buds of May,
And summer's lease hath all too short a date:
Sometime too hot the eye of heaven shines,
And often is his gold complexion dimm'd;
And every fair from fair sometime declines,
By chance or nature's changing course untrimm'd;
But thy eternal summer shall not fade
Nor lose possession of that fair thou owest;
Nor shall Death brag thou wander'st in his shade,
When in eternal lines to time thou growest:
So long as men can breathe or eyes can see,
So long lives this and this gives life to thee.
Oh, this is lovely! Here's the song:.

Sonnet 18 - David Gilmour
And here's a video:

This is certainly one of the better adaptations of one of his sonnetts. Seems to me I have come across some really bad ones (bad ones of E.A. Poe as well).
