Jim’s theme for today is – Above/Below/Between
Because I couldn’t think of a personal favourite which is how I usually determine my choices, I’ve cheated a little this week and looked up a song with BETWEEN specifically in the title.
I’ve come up with this………….. and WOW! It packs a punch.
A song I’ve never heard before by an artist I am not familiar with, though reading about her on WIKI (source) she is a very talented lady playing piano, guitar and ukulele as well as a singer/songwriter. I have only heard of her song BRAVE, and that too knocked my socks off.
In “Between the Lines”, Sara Bareilles ponders her relationship with a man she loves but has never quite gotten the chance to be with, even after countless close calls. Recently learning of his interest in someone else, she’s left brokenhearted, reflecting on their blurry relationship.
The song, written in 2007, was the last Bareilles wrote before going into the studio to record her debut major-label album, Little Voice. It’s a piano-driven ballad, one of many that contributed to what is now widely-seen as her signature sound.
“Between the Lines” also serves as the title of Bareilles’s first live album, recorded at The Fillmore in San Francisco, CA and released as both a DVD & CD in November 2008.
