Wake Up – Arcade Fire
I loved this song the first time I heard David Bowie sing it live with the band. It was awesome.
Frank Sinatra – Cake
I just like everything Cake does. They persuaded me to try songwriting. This song is ironic and old-fashioned. I love the rockabilly sound.
Father and Son – Cat Stevens
I love the way Cat sings both sides of the story – father and son. You can feel the father trying to get through to his son.
Pony – Celebration
I love the female vocals by Katherina. They inspired me to explore a new realm for my own voice.
My Buddy – Chet Baker
This is a sweet, romantic song. About your lover being your best friend. That is just so romantic.
True Colors – Cyndi Lauper
This is a great song and I loved it more when I heard her sing it live at a benefit. It encourages people to find their true identity.
Interpretation Swing Sur Le Premier Mouvement Du Concerto en Re Mineur de J. S. Bach – Django Reinhardt
First Movement of the Concerto in D Minor by J.S. Bach I just love Django Reinhardt and he plays this song so beautifully on the fiddle. I can’t get enough of it.
Jolene – Dolly Parton
She sings this song with such conviction. Through her singing and songwriting you can actually imagine what Jolene looks like.
Fisherman’s Woman – Emilíana Torrini
The intro to this song is amazing. You feel the heartache in every word.
