SOTD: Lentil (Live) – SiA

Song: Lentil (Live)
Artist: SiA
Album: Lady Croissant
Genre: Pop/Alternative
In short: Pint-sized Australian songbird Sia Furler has been making music for a long while, but her breakthrough came after her collaborative work with UK trip-hop duo Zero 7. Preceding the release of her fourth album, Some People Have Real Problems, Furler released a live album containing some of her old hits and new songs that were later included on the follow-up release. One of those songs is the sublime “Lentil”, written by Furler herself and long-time friend Samuel Dixon, the song mirrors Furler’s charming personality and is a notch above most singer-songwriters’ material.

No matter what I say about this lady, it will still be paltry. She’s one of my all-time favorite artists.

NBPut Your Arms Around Me (Live) – Natasha Bedingfield [Download]

I like this better than the original one.

RSLive With Me (Feat. Christina Aguilera) (Live) – Rolling Stones [Download]

Song Of The Day

: T.O.N.Y. (Live at AOL Black Voices)
Artist: Solange
Album: AOL Black Voices Session
In short:  This has always been a favorite of mine, the original that is. When Solange sang it live, she added so much to it, and who knew she had those beautiful high notes? I didn’t!

Stripped: Right As Rain – Adele

adeleI love live music, live singing and the excitement of the crowd. I will be posting various live versions of songs under “Stripped”. Right As Rain wasn’t an instant favorite when I first heard Adele’s 19, but it then grew on me, and now is one. I think the live version is much better than the album version, so I’m happy she did iTunes’ SoHo sessions. Take a listen and judge.
