This is my favourite song from the last album I bought - Melody Gardot's "My One and Only Thrill
", which I highly, highly recommend to anyone who likes blues, jazz or Nina Simone.
Also, this is an awesome
bathtub video. It makes me want to throw on my gold lamé and feather boa, grab a glass of champagne and go dancing...
(OK, so I don't have gold lamé - but I do
have a feather boa)
Aside from being a talented composer and singer, Melody Gardot
has a remarkable, if somewhat sad, backstory. Her career developed as a result of using music therapy to help her recover from a bad jeep-vs-cyclist accident that left her with multiple serious injuries, including permanent neural problems and hyper-sensitivity to both sound and light (the reason for the rather cute glasses). She continues to promote music therapy to this day.
