Suddenly I See
I though we’d do a little something different today. I thought we’d take a look at a more established artist this week. I’ve been listening to KT a lot recently, so it seemed fitting to feature her in a Press Play segment. Now, it seems pointless to go in lengthy detail about what type of artist she is, etc. I find most people know the music of KT Tunstall, so doing a regular edition of PPF is worthless to you, my lovely readers.
Today seems like a day to just snuggle up with soft blanket, a nice cup of hot chocolate, and listen to some music. And that’s exactly what we’re going to do. I say this a lot, but I’m going to let the music speak for itself. There is so much her music can say that I can not. KT is one of my favorite artists. Her lyrics are real, powerful, and always have a greater meaning. Her music and melodies are impeccable, intricate, and stunning. She’s one of those artist who take great pride in her music. You really have to appreciate that. Ever since her new album, Tiger Suit, came out – you can find my review HERE – I’ve had a new appreciation for her music. She’s an indie pop rock goddess, to be sure. Alright, let’s spin the wheel and get to some music, shall we? You know you want it. So here it is. Let’s start with an old favorite.
Black Horse & The Cherry Tree
“Well my heart knows me better than I know myself, so I’m gonna let it do all the talking. I came across a place in the middle of nowhere, with a big black horse and a cherry tree”
“If I choose to go with the way I’m feeling, does it really mean that’s the way it is? Is it just a trick that my eyes are playing on my mind? Following the passage of least resistance, following the pack just to pass the gate. It’s a little late for a change of plan, don’t you think? I got lost following you”
“And you said it didn’t matter, but I think you’re a liar. Is this one of your talents? That stokes the very fire that burns you, each time you try to live? The earth will turn below you, the pressure is building and something has to give. And when I build you a steeple, you say it’s incomplete, ’cause you need the whole cathedral, to satisfy the need”
“And never again, will you be accused of being something you are not, in light of the incident with that little piece of clothing you forgot. And now you cheveux has gone gray, and you’re standing by the fire, your repertoire is so stellar, I can’t help but admire”
