In the City

Emmy The Great, "City Song", available from iTunes here in the USA or on her album First Love if you're in the UK. This is probably the closest she's ever written to a sad song, and I am in awe of her talent every time I listen to it. That last line... that is some damned good songwriting, peeps.

Yeah, I really do think Emmy is great. She has some real songwriting chops, she can sing, and hey, she's a looker too. She has the whole package, in other words. It will be interesting to see what's going to happen with her in the future.

  1. I'll be damn, some music that I can like.

    I think that this is cool. SPIRITS PROJECTS

  2. As I look to the future, I feel despair.

    Emmy will probably either sink into oblivion, or become the next
    Lady Gaga.


  3. Well, Jazz, Emmy's profile is already oblivion, so she can't sink there ;). I doubt she'll go Gaga. She's from money. People from her class don't do such things. Which is both a blessing and a curse, she gets to make the music she wants to make because she doesn't have to go Gaga to make a living, but she has a hard time making the English music establishment take her seriously because they view her as a rich girl dilettante rather than someone serious about making music.

    So it goes...
