Having totally forgotten about this song, I was happy to enjoy it once again on my trip home from work yesterday. At the same time, I also happened upon quite a lively and song-filled bird; entirely adorable, and not so fragile.
This week’s song is in honor of my sweet niece’s birthday. I was going to post “Poker Face” from Lady Gaga, as Gracie announced when she was two that it was her “favoritist” song – but the video is too weird.
So, here’s Ben Fold’s “Gracie”
This song fits so well with my brother (her dad) and she. Such a daddy’s girl!
Two years ago – maybe more, maybe less – I came across Emy Reynolds and fell head-over-heels for her voice; it was precisely what I was looking for at that time. Folky, passionate, and has a uniqueness to it that can freshen a day filled with lame, yet catchy Pop songs.
The first video is her live, but as the quality is poor-ish, I’ll post two videos.
Below has much, much better quality!!
I’m a little out-of-order this week with having the week’s song come before the week’s word, but I think you’ll find yourself thanking me for the change-up.
Best song ever!
It’s also very Fleet Fox-y!
I heard this band on NPR a little while ago and just fell in love. It’s exactly what I had been looking to add to my potpourri-like music collection. As Heather McEntire’s voice is eerily familiar to Dolly Parton’s, I had initially thought she’d taken up a new, more modern folk-like sound – I was wrong and pleasantly surprised.
