I'm growing like a seed
Rains been falling on me
I've been covered in cold
I've been shrouded and downed
My heart is on a wire
Sailing pretty like a bird
But the hunter is out
And the eagle is hurt

The word that I
Feel, feel it all
Yes, I can feel
Feel it all

I'm looking to the sky
And I'll be listening to the stars
And maybe thinking of you
And wondering where you are
Do you know what you've done for me
You made my branches grow
Now they can play with the wind
And they can carry the snow

And they can feel
Feel it all
Yes, they can feel,
Feel it all

So take what you want
Leave what you don't need
And I'll go looking for you
You keep your eye out for me
'cause our heart is on a wire
Sitting pretty like a bird
But the hunter is hunting
And the eagle is us

And we can feel
Feel it all
Yes, we can feel
Feel it all

Oh, we can feel
Feel it all
Oh, we can feel
Feel it all
Feel, feel
Feel it all
And we can
Feel, feel it all

Feel, feel
Feel it all
Oh, we can
Feel, feel
we can feel
feel it all
Feel, feel
Feel it all

Sounds like the verses open with the riff from "Love Potion #9".

 


 
Actually, the melody reminded me of another song, but I couldn't quite put my finger on it. After the second verse, it came to me. The melody is nearly identical to Spinal Tap's Gimme Some Money. 

Stop wastin' my time
You know what I want
You know what I need
Or maybe you don't
Gimme some money
my speakers love this

...well before the cocaine and brandy.  Not sayin' just sayin'.  
 
  To me, KT has a clearer voice and more range than I ever remember hearing from Stevie Nicks. Stevie's voice was smoky and gravelly on the Buckingham-Nicks album (albeit lovely) and on songs like "Landslide" and "Rhiannon" -  before "Rumours", and likely before the dump-trucks full of cocaine started showing up for them.

KT Tunstall's voice is like having your ears wrapped in silk and honey. It's well balanced in the lower register and has a lovely tonality in the high register, without being a weak, powerless descant (like Ellie Goulding). What's even better is KT has a great deal of control over her vocal technique. She can move from gentle, soothing intonation to a powerful roar, and it all sounds great.

Can you tell she's one of my favourite artists? Each of her albums has a distinct theme and she's not afraid to be musically adventurous. She writes songs that mean something to her, and you can tell where she's at through listening. The album this track's from, Invisible Eye // Crescent Moon, is one of her most introspective albums in part due to the loss of her father and the break-up of her marriage. The story behind the album's creation is also interesting.

Her live concerts are very entertaining. She does some funky solo stuff and occasionally some outstanding covers. I've seen her perform both with a band and solo several times and she's always on form. Superb value for money! Quirky support acts too. 
If you enjoy KT Tunstall, you'll possibly also enjoy Lucy Rose. Slightly different but in the same 'breathy songstresses' camp. Another thoughtful songwriter I'm enjoying a lot at the moment, her second album has some great cuts on it.

Lekker
Earworm.
I can't put my finger on why this is only "pretty good" for me. I like it when it comes on. I like the groove. I like her voice and the chorus. I like the arrangement. But it doesn't make me say "I sure am glad that tune is in the rotation.". Weird.

This is a bonus track off the album. The instrumentation on the single version is quite different.

  Calling Neko Case maybe? 

Not sure I'd agree with the Stevie Nicks similarly. Also have a feeling Rumours was recorded on a healthy diet of brandy and coke. Stevie did ok on that.  I think most people would be a bit 'screechy' with that much blow up their snout!

Just sayin.

Not just a songstress, but a songwriter. Despite the imperfections, she always gets it right. Sheer brilliance.

Her voice is pretty clear and smooth - nowhere near as screechy as Stevie's.

 
Yeah, their voices aren't similar at all. KT Tunstall's is much more pleasant.
Quite nice!

Very interesting also the rendition of the famous and unforgettable song "La Vie En Rose" sung by KT Tunstall in the original French language, honoring its original author Edit Piaf. The song "La Vie en rose" written in 1945 by Édith Piaf herself, and the melody was composed by Marguerite Monnot and Louis Guglielmi and released as a single in 1947, and from the album "Chansons parisiennes", and later compilations (there are in excess of 80 albums of Édith Piaf's songs). I think KT Tunstall never sang live on stage this song, perhaps because of the difficulty of being sung in the original language.



 
Thanks for the info, as a French, I can easily understand the harshness as a non-native when it comes to make lyrics sound good in that language, but whichever the accent on "La Vie en Rose", it will always sound cute just because those particular lyrics of long song are cute. Grace Jones made it sound lovely, too, despite a fairly non-standard pronunciation which is actually so seducing... KT has a warmth in her voice which fits pretty well, too.
I like it.  Big fan of KT.

she likes the southwest usa...who doesnt?
Sometimes a song is insistent and wakes me out of my work, and this was one that had me thinking, "Who dat?" I guess I'll have to revise my opinion of KT.

CBC = Canadian Broadcasting Corporation. 

To detractors, it means Communist Broadcasting Corporation.

 

I'm a big fan of CBC radio (as well as the French Radio-Canada) and I'm also a big fan of freemarket capitalism. 

 

I think ideology makes far too many people stupid.  



 
i love you.  I take back all the mean things I said about you hehehehe you little wrascal. :)
   Love this track.   {#Daisy}    KT Tunstall has real talent as a singer and songwriter....nice easy range in her voice

See https://kttunstall.com/biography - probably shot in AZ near where she did the recording. She talked about that in concert here recently: how that hanging out in the desert experience had changed her life, etc.

Country/western? Here? Do you hear this as an example? Either you have problems defining categories or I do not understand your terms. My guess is that most listeners to RP find some music to be over-played or would prefer that it never be played. I feel this way at times. But, my guess in this case is that you don't know C/W music.

If there is one concern I have about RP is frequency of songs on the heavy playlist...way too heavy.  Too much of a good thing as well. Too much of songs I despise.  Don't know if there's a way to go even more eclectic without losing donation-paying listeners.....but that's my two cents.  For me, I just take a break (anywhere from approx. 5 -20 days) from RP (I LOVE SiriusXM The Loft). for awhile, then come back.  It's always GREAT upon returning.

Wow, in this song, she does it all. I like how she wraps up everything you want in a song like this, and delivers it; seductive style & twang!

You must have had the benefit of listening only to internet/satellite radio for too long to remember what heavy rotation is really like.   You should ride with me sometime in my car that gets only FM radio when my teenage girls are listening to the local pop station.  Even they joke when the latest Pink or Taylor Swift hit we hear on the way home from a skating lesson is the exact same one we heard on the way there an hour ago.  That station must have a rotation list in the dozens.  This KTT song has been played 6 times in the past 30 days, FGS!

RP, keep doing what you're doing!

Or maybe stupid people gravitate toward ideology.
