Two quick notes: - While the song is also featured on the excellent Crash soundtrack CD by Mark Isham - the advantage to this CD is that you'll discover that "In the Deep" is not a just a fluke but rather just one of many incredible songs by Ms. York.
Secondly - many of the songs appearing on this CD also appear on her previous CD "The Velvet Hour", which from what I've read was sort of an earlier version of this CD that she released prior to signing with a proper label. Bottom line - if you want to check out Bird's music - I would definitely start with this one.
Bird York has one of the most soothing voices I've heard, which reaches the depths of your heart, the most profoundly touching writing and a beautiful blend of instruments that make this CD a perfect Lounge CD. If you have found yourself taken away by the song In the Deep, from the movie Crash, you know what I mean.
Of course, In the Deep is one of the many songs in this album that will take you into a world you may, and at the same time, may not know.
My favorites here, besides In the Deep, are:
Track 2 - Remedy - Makes you want to take a long drive along the country roads. Love the acoustic guitar in this piece. The lyrics alone will make you think of that special someone...
Track 3 - Wicked Little High --- Oh haven't we all been there. The lyrics will make you smile and think of that one Mr. or Ms. Wrong in your life: "You're a wrong turn/a big fat No/you're the fifth drink before a long drive home...the bars to my cage, you're all I think about everyday..." A must listen to. You'll find yourself singing that one quite a bit.
Track 9 - Lovely Thing - Perfect song for those of us who have been filled with the wonderful gift of love. She couldn't describe the feeling better: "....I'm bursting with everything.../Love is filling me up/it's taking the edges off my heart../I'm floating just like a leaf in its stream..." A hymn to being in cloud 9.
Track 10 - Come be with me -- Talk about setting the one you love free (hopefully so they come back).Read more ›
This CD is definitely my "desert island disc."
All kinds of influences and yet they get mixed together into something special and different. Definitely a CD worth having.
Bird's poetry is very thought provoking and inspiring. She is truly a story teller, which is proven by the song, "Save Me" alone. This song speaks to what happens when you are with someone for many years, you are old, and your mate dies and leaves you alone. How do you act?
"Had a dream," is a wonderful work of poetry. Here are a few words from that song: "I had a dream that our hearts were like flowers opening up, everytime that we love. And I'm wondering if we just try and risk everything for love how can we ever go wrong."
You will never "go wrong" with a Bird York cd purchase. Enjoy!
