I purchased Norah's entire album instead of this one because I read that it included three songs and was labeled "cd-single". I think Norah has a wonderful voice and will go very far if she keeps up the good work. To those who purchased the "cd-single" without reading what was included I say don't blame anyone but yourself, and read before you click! Buy her complete CD!

"Don't Know Why", in case you have not heard it, is mellow jazz-pop. In the song, Norah wishes that she had gone to the person she loved instead of going the other way, hence "I don't know why I didn't come". This is a great song but in my opinion, not the best on the album so do not get swayed by people who say she's just a one hit wonder and this is only worthy song. To those people: "Don't Know Why" was not a big radio hit in the first place. It is just that her entire album is so beautifully done that is selling due to word of mouth. The live recordings of "Lonestar" and "Peace" demonstrate that Norah is more than capable of performing live with the same ease and flair as in the studio. The live songs do not have the high quality as the album versions do, ofcourse, so if you're starting a Norah collection buy the single but do not forget the album.

I concur with the person who also is annoyed with reviews complaining about this CD only containing 3 tracks. It is a single. Only a fool wouldn't read an item's description without buying it. As it is, this single will be a collectible one day when it is long out of print, because Norah is a legend-in-the-making. Her voice melts my heart. If you want a soothing CD to calm your nerves and, if needed, lull you to sleep, and without depressing lyrics, but rather uplifting lyrics, then, Norah makes for an excellent alternative to Enya. (Not to suggest that she's the same kind of artist-absolutely not.) The title track of this single is no exception. It is brief yet simple. And beautiful. LONESTAR is also pretty good, but not one of the best lifted from the album. PEACE is the real treat here, however. It is lifted from her first release, the FIRST SESSIONS EP, which is long deleted. So now it's only available here, and it is a serene, quiet track, acapella-esque in its simplicity. Norah's vocals really draw a picture here, and this song will definitely do what you might very well expect you to do-it will make you feel at peace. PEACE is enough reason to get this *SINGLE* because it's only available here. So, all you Norah fans, click that ADD TO CART button. You will not regret it. You will get a Norah collectable and a great new track.

Although I love the earthy, rich tones of Norah Jones' voice, I would NOT have bought this CD if I had realized that there were only 3 songs on it. By the time you sit down and start to enjoy it, it's over. Some of these songs can also be found on one of her other CDs - and they are actually full CDs. I would recommend buying one of the others. After all, they don't cost any more than this one.

There aren't many musicians who can release a debut album and go on to become of the biggest superstars of the past decade within the space of a year. Norah Jones is clearly an exception to the rule. Her debut album "Come Away With Me" was released in the spring of 2002 and went no where for about a year. Few critics even knew it was on shelves and only a handful of music industry insiders knew her name. This all changed when the hype began to build and in February 2003, Norah Jones picked up a staggering 8 Grammy awards for the album - a record for a female artist. Suddenly Norah was big news and the album gradually ascended to the No.1 spot all over the world; suddenly jazz was cool; suddenly America had a new idol; suddenly, people began to wonder how such a young lady could make such simple music and break all the records and rules...

The album has since topped the charts in both the US and UK and just been certified for US sales of 9 million copies. Worldwide sales stand at 18 million and despite this success, Norah has many critics. Some can't believe her international fame and believe her as nothing more than a jazz/country wannabe with hardly anything to show for it. How wrong they are! Norah's voice is amazingly powerful and extremely soulful. She's chilled out and cool and people can listen to her music easily which is why she appeals to a phenomenally vast market. She also happens to be stunning in appearance, and that always helps! Come Away With Me is now a classic in modern music, a landmark of the times and is still going strong selling hundreds of thousands of copies around the world, with no signs of slowing down!

The first single that was taken from Come Away With was the fantastic "Don't Know Why.

Norah Jones portrays her music talents brilliantly on these three tracks. "Don't Know Why" is a wonderful song for all audiences. Its smoothness and peacefulness will spice up a night out with that special someone. It may be a great headache soother. "Lonestar" showcases her heart and soul that one can easily relate. "Peace" proves that she excells in jazz, something few pop performers perfected.
Some may debate if these tracks are pop or jazz. Either way, she has a unique and real sound. Her piano performances are as soulful as her quiet voice. Those who like this ensemble will love her CD "Come Away With Me". "Peace" isn't included. Her talents prove that she deserved her five Grammy wins, including Record of the Year for "Don't Know Why".
