My Artist Of The Week – “Corinne Bailey Rae”

The artist I choose for this week is: Corinne Bailey Rae.

I discovered Corinne Bailey Rae in late 2007, if I’m not mistaken. I was chatting with a friend on MSN late one night and she told me to give Corinne’s song “Like A Star” a listen because she thought it was “so me”. I was curious to see what she thought was my taste since she and I hasn’t known each other for more than two weeks, so I went on ahead and gave it a listen. Ten seconds into the song and I was shocked to find out that she actually knew me way more than I thought. Two minutes later, I was in love.

My favourite songs of hers are “Like A Star”, “Trouble Sleeping”, “Paper Dolls” and “Closer”. And recently, I’ve been totally obsessed with her newly released album “The Sea” which I think all of you should give a listen – all the way through it!

My favourite lyrics are these;

Just like a star across my sky,
Just like an angel off the page,
You have appeared to my life,
Feel like I’ll never be the same,
Just like a song in my heart,
Just like oil on my hands,
Honoured to love you.

From “Like A Star” from the album “Corinne Bailey Rae”

Could it be I’m suffering
Because I’ll never give in
Won’t say that I’m falling in love
Tell me I don’t see myself
Couldn’t I blame something else
Don’t say I’m falling in love

From “Trouble Sleeping” from the album “Corinne Bailey Rae”

All my life all my life
I said it’s not right
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something
I have tried I have tried
To say it’s alright
Nobody told me I could do something
Nobody told me I could be something

FromĀ  “Paper Dolls” from the album “The Sea”
