You would think with all the hype and all of the posts that I have devoted to Pearl Jam lately, that I would be listening to the new cd non-stop. You would think wrong. For one thing, I still haven’t received my pre-ordered cd in the mail. I’m starting to get a little bit pissed off about that, but that’s not why I’m not listening to them. I did take advantage of the free download so I have the tracks.
The real reason I’m not listening to my beloved Pearl Jam is that after hearing Katherine McPhee’s rendition of "Black Horse and the Cherry Tree" on AI the other night I can’t stop listening to K.T. Tunstall. I discovered her a while back and immediately downloaded her cd through Rhapsody. I listened to her non-stop for a couple of weeks until I finally had gotten my fill and could move on to other music.
K.T. Tunstall’s voice is so soothing to me. With all of the things going on in my life lately and the mood I have been in, listening to her just reaches in and warms me in ways that I can’t really explain. I haven’t felt this way about a female singer since I first discovered Sarah McLachlan way back in high school (Thanks again, Manuel!). She just does something for me. She makes me feel when I would prefer to be numb.
