Singer/songwriter Sunny Ozell tells BlastEcho her favorite song you’ve never heard:
I adore the piano’s pulse, and the way the voicings change from verse to verse. The vocal is clean, unadorned, and honest. And though it’s essentially a straight-ahead jazz ballad, there’s a definitive groove that I really dig. If you were to look at the lyrics on paper, I don’t know that they would read quite as melancholic as they do when paired up the chords being played on the piano—I love when intention is conferred through more subtle means. I think Jon Brion is a complete genius, and his gifts are in full bloom here.
