My Song Recommendations

A song recommendation every day (be warned, they will probably all be weird folky songs that no one will have heard of or want to bother with.) Hozier, Sara Bareilles, Hudson Taylor, Passenger, Ben Howard, Bear's Den, Vance Joy will all probably be featured quite heavily.

Basically this is just my response to how much I love certain songs and writers at the moment and how I listen to something and get that "weird evangelical zeal, and become convinced that the shattered world will never be put back together unless and until all living humans [hear it]".

Enjoy!

23. Day 22 - Bluebird

 

Bluebird by Sara Bareilles:

Word came through in a letter,
One of us changing our minds.
You won't need to guess who
Since I usually do not send letters to me
That are mine

I told him I saw this coming,
That I'd practically packed up my things.
I was glad at the time that I said I was fine
But all honesty knows, I wasn't ready, no

And so here we go bluebird,
Back to the sky on your own.
Oh, let him go bluebird,
Ready to fly,
You and I,
Here we go.
Here we go.

This pair of wings worn and rusted,
From too many years by my side.
They can carry me, swear to be,
Sturdy and strong but see,
Turning them on still means goodbye.

And so here we go bluebird,
Gather your strength and rise up.
Oh, let him go bluebird
Oh, let him go bluebird
Oh, let him go bluebird
Ready to fly,
You and I,
Here we go.
Here we go.
Here we go...

 

I return to my favourite female singer today (its been a while) to recommend you one of the saddest but prettiest songs she's written (in my opinion). It is, like many songs, a standard break-up song but when sat next to your standard singer/songwriter ballad it stands out a little. The lyrics to the first verse gets me every time, as does the soaring power of her voice as the song builds.

Sorry that the video's not the best quality but this song is surprisingly hard to track down on YouTube! It comes from her 2011 album (I think it was 2011) 'Kalidescope Heart'.

Enjoy!
