A Music Blog (#37: This blog entry was brought to you by the letter 'Y')

Have another entry out of the blue. Not too much basis behind this entry - just a song I happen to like, heard it again recently, and I figured I probably should have a few more blog entries involving female vocalists!

Still open to getting challenge themes btw. Come up with a theme of any sort and I'll come up with a bunch of songs that fit it! Well, hopefully anyway. Otherwise I'll just go with whatever comes to mind.

Alternate link! (Live)

I waited 'til I saw the sun
I don't know why I didn't come
I left you by the house of fun
I don't know why I didn't come
I don't know why I didn't come

When I saw the break of day
I wished that I could fly away
Instead of kneeling in the sand
Catching teardrops in my hand

My heart is drenched in wine
But you'll be on my mind

Out across the endless sea
I would die in ecstasy
But I'll be a bag of bones
Driving down the road alone

My heart is drenched in wine
But you'll be on my mind

Something has to make you run
I don't know why I didn't come
I feel as empty as a drum
I don't know why I didn't come
I don't know why I didn't come

A nice, chill tune from Norah Jones. =) Probably the most popular of hers too, and it was the tune that I think launched her career significantly, including nabbing her a Grammy. Or three, rather. Interestingly, she didn't create it, but rather a friend did who offered it to her to perform (after a few changes to key and etc). Not a bad outcome in doing that!

I'd say my favourite part has to be the second time she sings 'But you'll be on my mind/Forever', and the music itself is just nice and relaxing to listen to. The lyrics have a few interpretations out there, but I'd say the easiest to follow is that she's regretting a decision to see/see off a lover. They're not too specific, which I think helps the song too.

I did learn something btw when looking up the song. She performed this on Sesame Street about the Letter Y. And now you understand the blog title.

Next entry!
