Feeling a bit under the weather today, but I have things to do so… when I have these bursts of energy, I must act. In addition to today’s song, I have to answer work emails, do some light yoga and an arms workout (because, really, what good is a singer who can’t dead-lift at least 100 lbs?). Right, now that you’ve got that image in mind, I’ll just sing, shall I?
I told you before that sometimes a song just calls to me. This is one of those times. From the underrated gem of a Broadway musical, Bells are Ringing…
And this song is so pretty. The lyrics in particular. Kindness and love and all things nice and warm that we really should hold on to these days.
Last night’s recording was rough. I put together a lovely rendition of “La Isla Bonita,” only to have it deleted twice by SoundCloud. I get it, copyright… but it was nearly 10 pm and I was exhausted. So, I did a rough and tumble cover of Jimmy Buffett.
Well, today I’m cheating. Here is another recording I made weeks ago with my maestra, Vanessa Pace. Enjoy 🙂
Today’s selection is inspired by a desire to go sunbathe on a beach and dance under the moonlight… [two failed songs later] OK, so rough seas tonight. Here’s my third time charm:
“When I find myself in times of trouble…” John Denver comes to me. Around 4 PM, I decided that today had to be one of his songs. Here you go, world…
I’ll take it! Spring is just around the corner, right? It’s too easy these days to want to sing something angry, or sad. When in doubt, put your music on shuffle and the right song will come along!
