Remember my Suggest-A-Song Monday posts? *crickets*
I think I’ll move them to Friday, so everyone will have time to listen to stuff. BTW, I DO listen to everything y’all suggest. Some have even reached IPOD status so I thank you all for the new music to my ears.
Today, I’m leaving you with a song that has been stuck in my head for about 2 weeks now, since they began streaming Corinne Bailey Rae’s album online. Diving for Hearts. I love everything about this song. It’s currently my co-favorite off her new album along with Are You Here.
I love the beginning, how you feel like you’re hearing a band warm up. The album was recorded with her vocals over the actual live instruments and you can tell. I love the dark, moonlit, intense feeling the song has. I love how the tempo changes throughout the song and how it gets heavy at the end with the guitars and stuff, you hear some soft chanting lyrics then it builds up to “over the stones, into the sea“….and gets crunk with the guitars. I love the lyrics that I’ve been able to decipher (none online yet). This really is a great album. I’m disappointed she’s not stopping anywhere near me on her North American tour so if she’s coming near YOU I expect YOU to go see her and take video and upload the video and notify me IMMEDIATELY when said video is uploaded. Mm-kay? Kay.
Til then I wasn’t alive, I long for you like the love-sick moon…pulls the tide
Chorus: Was it emotion…or should I keep on diving, keep on diving down/Under this ocean…I’m gonna keep on diving, til my heart is found/It’s got a hold on me/Can’t forget the things I’ve seen
Gone and drop a song in the comment box you’d like to recommend.
