I can't stop myself from calling
Calling out your name
I can't stop myself from falling
Falling back again
In the morning
Baby, in the afternoon

Dark like the shady corner
Inside a violin
Hot like to burn my lips
I know I can't win
In the morning
Baby, in the afternoon

I tried to quit you but I'm too weak
Waking up without you
I can hardly speak at all

My girlfriend tried to help me
Get you off my mind
She tried a little tea and sympathy
To help me to unwind
In the morning
Baby, in the afternoon

Funny how my favorite shirt
Smells like you more than me
Bitter traces left behind
In stains no one can see
In the morning
Baby, in the afternoon

You're gonna put me in an early grave
I know I'm your slave whenever you call

I can't stop myself from calling
Calling out your name
I can stop myself from falling
Falling back again
Falling back again
In the morning
Baby, in the afternoon

It truly is head-shakingly amazing and amusing, how much hate and vitriol some people can muster up for someone making music that is, if not YOUR kind of thing, is absolutely listenable and unoffensive. I mean, she's not Kenny G for Pete's sake. :-) Yes, I get the irony.
I always feel like Norah's tunes are just a little 'too' polished.  Too good, too perfected, too professional.  Somehow they lose authenticity this way.   Still enjoyable though.
Completely forgettable. Would it kill this woman to put some effort into her work?

Also kinda dumb for a cognitive species to resort to but that's what humans do.

 
They did when they were denied places in the work place but that's all changed so now they have options.
I think she's talented. But she's not my cuppa. Fast forward. 
how did this career ever get under the radar. an entirely derivative non-talent
She can defend herself well.
She knows she lean on me.
Joy sometimes she does it better
May be that was bothering me?

I must be a different species then. My GF and I met when we were both beyond childbearing age, and she has all the money.
.....LOVE.........HER......{#Tongue}

You might be able to buy the parts you werent given genetically, but otherwise, you dont control what face and body you received.
If you are a musician, which is a "sound" craft, you shouldnt be judged on a "visual" level.

Like listening to fingernails on a chalkboard.

Her affected style is just so synthetic.  The antithesis of soulful.

I enjoy nearly all the jazz stuff you mix in, Bill.  But truly, Norah Jones is to jazz what David Cassidy is to heavy metal.

You almost always avoid the synthetic pop, uh, stuff, and opt for the "completely different" and the creative (The Black Keys excepted).  Not sure why Ms. Jones makes the RP cut.  Nothing interesting there.

This is SO much better than anything I've heard of her new (2013) album.  I want the old Norah back...

WOOW, NORAH!

INCREDIBLE INDEED!


NORAH IS INCREDIBLE INDEED!!

I'm with you, Randomax.  She has turned out to be a one-trick pony if ever there was one. Ho-hum at best.
 
One-trick?  Utter nonsense.  Her work on RP reduces your argument to rubble in no time flat.  
(re)Tired.
Norah has her time and place; I find she fits well on a rainy evening, cooking dinner or sipping wine.

Soothing and groovy.  7.

Definitely agree. Really love the use of elec. piano here, great bluesy progression, and terrific backing from the group (drums especially groovy.)

Should say though that her duet w/Dolly Parton on the same disc is really great as well. 
Hotwired talent. Superb choice of material, superb musicians and superior vocal skills are her hallmark. Fabulous future ahead for both Norah and her listeners......

Still something about her music that feel 'artificial' - wish I could put my finger on why I feel that way - but this is much better than the overplayed breathy stuff I've heard previously.

I get the sense she's got some amazing pipes but just won't let 'em rip.
Much less snore-inducing than her most well-known first album. She even manages to sing somewhat louder than pianissimo.

I agree with you, but not at all surprised by the negative comments, the beauty of RP is the diversity... in music and in it's listeners :cheers:

No more repetitive than Jones' lullabyes. Maybe the point was that it's still muzak no matter how much you attempt to cloak it in the vapid language of music critics. News flash -- it's still muzak.
Muzak is in the eye of the beholder. Now I have heard Son Volt's new song played at Home Depot (yeah, they're cool retailers!), but its a pretty safe bet you'll never hear Porcupine Tree at any similar venue/outlet. This Norah Jones woman is pretty good. Her music is pretty much from the heart and its good background music. And she appeals to a lot of people. Clue. Retailers like to play music we know and recognize to make us feel more at home and willing to spend money because we feel catered to.

One of the things I really like about Norah Jones is her diversity of styles and genres. She's doing a lot of different things, most of them pretty darn well. Oh yeah. She's smokin' hot, too.

I just finished reading "Blink" and that was one of the stories in the book. It was about classical orchestras and the tryouts of female performers, and the solution that orchestras used to remove the "visual" bias during all tryouts. Good mellow song, BTW. 7

Norah also had a side project of the Little willies, and she collaborated on a track "Any Other Day"? with Wyclef Jean for a hurricane relief CD....those are pretty darn good. Not as low key jazzy as her solo things. This is a 5 to me.

Totally with you Cesare. I didn't like her at first either. This piece is really cool though. (Even on Amazon.com people either love or hate her music. No in-betweens!)

Good band -- mediocre singer.

norah turned into snorah for me through overexposure but the bluesy mood of this one is really nice. an 8

She is a part of the radio-friendly pop nonsense. It can be liked by everyone, but it is nothing amazing or wonderful. It's nice...

This might apply to the radio waves, but not RP. No marketing might can push songs on here; just uploads, votes, and donations (and I'm pretty sure Bill's not getting wads of cash from that "a.r./p.r. blitzkreig" you spoke of). For me, Norah's either a big hit or a strike out, with very little in between. This tune completely surprises me with her depth and subtlety. Quite likeable.

Maybe it's just my mood, but this isn't as bad as I remembered. Upgraded from Sucko-Barfo too Acceptable.

Wow, you must have a lot of self-absorbed music snobs for friends who have long ago ceased to truly enjoy music. :wink: For the most part, Jones has good songs, well-played, beautifully but simply arranged, with a entrancing voice. Who cares if I've heard similar things before? This is damn good. I just don't get the "derivative" argument. It's about soul, not orginality. But to each his own.
So, Norah Jones is a torch singer - so was Sarah Vaughn, Billie Holiday, etc... To point out that this woman is progeny of Ravi Shankar should be enough said, but to deny her talent by saying she's a "pop" artist is silly and shallow. IMNSHO

Great playing on the Whurlitzer.

I think it is an interesting percussion arrangement, and the players backing her up are exceptionally good. On this song, she reminds me a little of one of my favorites, Bonnie Raitt. I hope Jones can keep on moving up and make her own mark. In my opinion, she has the potential. You go, girl. :)
yeah, groovy

holy crap... something other than that song they play constantly on idiot radio... I mean.. if regular radio played tunes like this.. and had less annoying dj's ... perhaps then I could say they get it.. and boy am I surprised.. I've not looked into Norah Jones at all because the ONLY songs I'd heard were "Don't know why", and "Come away with me".. and neither song seemed worthy of attention... just might have to look into it.. just gotta cut the former two songs off the cd's.... :mrgreen:

The song or the Norah Jones in general? While I liked her debut album, I didn't feel it was the spectacular album a lot of folks did--or at least that the marketing machines told us they did. She does seem to dodge the sophomore bullet with this album. I like it better, in fact. Will it be an album for the ages, though? Hm... MT
Overrated in the extreme.
It's always fun to make the first comment on RP. This song, however, defies easy evaluation.
