Bunton’s Winter CD: Track 6

Every so often I make up a mix CD of my favorite songs at the moment; mostly new songs, but with some old songs sprinkled in for flavor. I thought it’d be a neat feature of this new blog to go through, song-by-song, and explain a little about why it appeals to me.

sara_bareillesSara Bareilles was another discovery through VH1 You Outta Know, months before she had her brief popularity with this track, “Love Song“. I admit, I haven’t had occasion to hear any of her other work, so any impressions I have will have to stand on the strength of this one track.

And strong it is. It’s quite reminiscent of the Lilith movement of the nineties, but updated to a less angry, more confident flavor. Perhaps it’s evidence of the evolution of American feminism that estro-rock has evolved in such a way. In any case, the song was a big hit in early 2007, due a great deal to its catchy melody. The video is also rather noteworthy. It reminds me of the work of Bryan Fuller, especially Pushing Daisies (which could—and should—get a blog post of its own.)—inventive and visually rich. A good video can add so much to a song.

Next time: a TV theme song
