While love seasons will undo your soul
Time forgives us and it takes control
We separate our things to put us back together

We're light as a feather
Heavy as the weather
If it was rainstorms

Put our hands together to plough obey
It's like a show was over
But we're too scared to walk away
All for the better
Worst for the way

We're light as a feather
Got you and I together

Meanwhile inside of me it was rainin' storms, hm,
You didn't know, hm
God bless your soul

We're light as a feather
Heavy as the weather
We're light as a feather
Got you and I together

Amazing artist. Saw her live in Oakland, CA

She does a fun duet of "Baby It's Cold Outside" on Willie Nelson's excellent "American Classic." She also appeared with Nelson and Wynton Marsalis on an HDNet concert. Wonderful.
 
Indeed a very good duet with Wille - the best version of that song I have heard
One of those I'd-neva-a-gessed-it-was-her moments.

Bosh... that one is straight on my Tidal playlist.
love this womens voice.
Norah seduced me with Come Away With Me and I've been hooked ever since.

Whew, what a relief. Hey everyone, he's given us all the green light to listen to this!

Mellow vibe, just right for getting the job done today.  Cheers, RP.

Lame. As per usual.
 
But enough about your song comment.

Another fine tune from Norah.
Lame. As per usual. 
love her voice - if she doesn't have talent then I wonder how she's managed to make a career in music? Life is so easy really, you just say you want to be something and you are...

Here's a no-talent who appeared out of nowhere and had a career. Must be the Clive Davis connection.

 
Most people don't need talent, just music they can sleep/fuck/cry/dance to.
But yeah she is very bland and insignificant

What Clive Davis connection? She's on Blue Note Records, not any of Davis' past or current labels; if there's any "connection" it would be from her father.  I'm not a big fan but she's far from "no-talent".
Not sure if it's the singing (voice is ok, but the singing style on this song is terrible), or just the boring music, but this is just plain bad.
Never mind the lyrics...  {#Frustrated} 

A rock solid 1 from me...

{#Hearteyes}   .... always enjoy listening to Norah - great voice and a very nice person



That song is actually penned by Ryan Adams. It's my favorite on Norah's album.
Sounds like Norah has found her more true sound/style/self with this album and since
Good song writer, lovely voice, nice arrangements. Still — somehow — the songs begin to sound alike. Moody, sultry, sincere — and light as a feather. Not sure there's a lot of there there. 

Terrible cover - fantastic music!

Wonderful guitar work!


{#Bananajumprope}{#Beat}{#Motor}

Well done, Norah

         LOVELY


This is pleasant and safe...then again...so is vanilla. Wait...I like vanilla. Hmmm...

Wow it must be opposite day.  2nd comment in a row on the top of a page that I am 100% diametrically opposed to.  Normally a huge fan but find this lacklustre.  I like the album she did with the Peter Mallick Group best by far.

Has anyone besides me noticed that the first three or for notes of this tune are the very same little riff at the beginning of the old Black Sabbath song Fairies Wear Boots?

 
Yeah, I did think it was Sabbath at first. Shoulda known better.

Dum...dum...DUM...dummm...
Moderator: "Name that tune!"
Contestant: "Hmmm...'Fairies Wear Boots' by Black Sabbath?"
Moderator: "No, sorry, it's 'Light As A Feather' by Norah Jones, but thanks for playing!"

Light and delicious like blueberry sorbet. {#Tongue}
Norah Jones is so boring....

To me, this song is pure "Farfegnugen" for all of my German dissenters as listed below...

I love the song, even though it sounds much like The Cardigans' "Couldn't Care Less." I think this is Norah's best album so far.
is bland the word?
best song on this cd {#Daisy}
{#Puke}
Her song Stuck is a pure jewel.
Thank you, Bill!
I love the new direction in which Norah Jones is going with this album — hope her next one is much like this one!

Quiet is the lew loud!  Very nice song from Norah!!

Much better than her older stuff!

She's got a great live show if you can see her in a smaller venue.  
I like that new approach she's taking
I'm really digging this new album. I hope she continues down this path.

She looks like she just got married to guitarist Slash and his dog...in fact shame he's not guesting on this track, as it needs a kick of something; too languid
Slash? You takin the piss?

You have been no fan, OR Norah? I haven't been Norah either.

Got the album, had to wrangle it from my daughter's vice like grip, like this a lot.
Very easy to listen to, she's got a good vibe going on this album, where I wasn't so bothered by the earlier albums.
Nice
 
i must agree. this album is such a great surprise, good groovy stuff, no more boring miss jones. love it to bits!

This is a good song from a really solid album-wasn't a fan of Norah's until recently. Track 8, You've Ruined Me, is a keeper. {#Daisy}

Half-listening, the past couple times I heard the intro to this song I thought it was Jack the Stripper / Fairies Wear Boots by Black Sabbath.  After a bit I realized it wasn't Ozzy singin'.

I came here to post the same observation, but you beat me to it.

wow- I thought this was Minnie Driver singing at first.

Do you know who her daddy is ? I would tell but I'm not to sure how to spell the name. Hint..he hung out with the Beatles...
 
I think it was the other way around....

Her half sister takes more after her dad, she plays a mean sitar.

This song is gorgeous from start to finish, and let me remind you that, to this point, I have been no fan or Norah.

This is a sweet album! Went ahead and bought it. Except for a few songs, never really was a fan, but this one clicks.
 

Oh yes! I got to seriously dislike her, may be because I didn't like her previous work and because she is overplayed here, everywhere.
But this album, it's genuinely beautiful. Thank you Bill to allow such re-discovery of an artist I lost interest in...

Ravi Shankar...

A nice change from that MOR lounge music she was becoming a little too comfortable with.

Norah Jones is a huge talent with nearly 50 million albums sold and multiples of every award offered musicians.                                

 She writes her own music, plays a dozen instruments,  and is the most successful female artist of the 2000's. She is simply exquisite and getting better with time.

I often think that I prefer her old Living Room CD, all live performances, it was unforgettable !

Luvvley!
She was gorgeous on Jools Holland, Chasing Pirates is another cracker, might pop out and buy the thing

Best cut I've heard off this record so far. And I want that hat!

Yeh.  But she pulls it off nicely.

She was on Colbert last night - very good.
