Tune In Tuesday is a weekly feature hosted by GReads!
The name of the album this week’s Tune In Tuesday track comes from is Happenstance. It’s apt, really, because that’s exactly how I found Rachael Yamagata. But now that I have, well, I won’t leave discovering more and new music by this emotionally engaging singer to chance.
Deciding on a song to plug in this post took time; I went back and forth, nearly settled on “I’ll Find a Way,” but when it came down to it…The decision was laughably easy. It had to be “I Want You.”
Folks, this song. Oh, this song. It’s jazzy and infectious; it’s glorious and evocative; it’s just right for Yamagata’s smoky-like-a-dozen-candles-in-a-small-intimate-room voice. And it begins with this: “You sat down next to me like poetry to wine.”
One last thing: prepare yourself for trumpet. It’s flirtatious and dead sexy here. Especially at the end…*swoons*
