Song
: In My Bed
Artist: Amy Winehouse
Album: Frank
Genre: Jazz/Soul
In short: Amy Winehouse’s music is unapologetically crusty, and completely sensational. Even though Amy is gone, her music is immortal.

riverofloveLove me like a river does
Cross the sea
Love me like a river does
Endlessly
Love me like a river does
Baby don’t rush you’re no waterfall
Love me that is all
“-Melody Gardot’s “Love Me Like A River Does

MelodyGardot-04-bigWho? Melody Gardot. Genre? Jazz. About: My dear friend @Nasque of Loft956 makes monthly compilations, and each month he introduces us (me) to at the very least two new artists I didn’t know before, last month’s star is Melody Gardot a jazzy singer for the fans of Norah Jones (except she’s a bit better). Her voice is distinctive it’s like a mixture of the best of Duffy and Adele. I chose theses 5 songs specifically for you to download and enjoy. Frist, Baby I’m A Fool the album opener, her voice will immediately capture your attention, the lyrics are great as well “Baby I should hold on just a moment and be sure it’s for vanity, look me in the eye and tell me love is never based upon insanity“. If The Stars Were Mine is the song to download if you’re only downloading one, it’s the song that introduced me to Ms. Gardot. It’s definitely the cutest song I have heard all year, no doubts, seriously download it and see for yourself. Our Love Is Easy is epic, from the musical instruments to her deliverance, nothing not to like about the song, the lyrics “Our love is easy, like water rushing over stone, our love is easy, like no love I’ve ever known“. Now we go back in time to her debut album Worrisome Heart. The title track will compel you, trust. Some Lesson is probably my favorite off that album, “Why do the hands of time, so easily unwind?“.
Download the songs, listen to them, and give me your feedback!

Baby I’m A Fool

edithI believe that each country, or shall I say region has an impeccable icon singer, whether it be a Traditionalist one, a Soprano, or a plain Diva, whose voice reaches and touches the whole world. They’re too many to list, but through this category I hope to cover the ones I love one by one. This time she’s french. I have always loved the language (french!) and I still think it’s the sexiest language, and the most beautiful one. I hope one day to master it. Until then, I’ll keep listening to french music. I would be lying if I said I knew Edith before the Marion Cotillard movie. I decide to get her “Very Best Of” and listen to it, and so I did. Her voice is not only magical, it’s one of the weirdest voice I have heard. I could listen to that voice my whole life and not be bored of it, I believe she’s the european equivalent of Umm Kulthum. There are no words to describe her, or her voice, the only way to truly understand what I mean, download the songs below and you’ll know.

Comme Moi
Hymne A L’amour
Avant Nous

norah-jones-not-too-latejpgSong: Thinking About You
Artist: Norah Jones
Album: Not Too Late
In short: While I was listening to Rosie Thomas’ It Don’t Matter To The Sun, I remembered this song, because of the similar intros, therefor, I played it and was drawn into a Norah bliss.
