A friend told me about this new 19-year old singer he discovered: Katie Melua. I downloaded a couple of tracks and then bought the CD (yes, p2p sharing networks make me buy more music). She’s from Georgia (formerly in the USSR) originally, but moved to the UK in 1984.
Personally I think she’s great.
From her latest album “Call of the search”, this is “Call of the search” (suprising isn’t it?):
I won't spend my life, waiting for an angel to descend,<br>searching for a rainbow with an end,<br>now that I've found you<br>I'll call off the search.
and I won't spend my life, gazing at the stars up in the sky<br>wondering if love will pass me by<br>now that I've found you<br>I'll call off the search
Out on my own I would never have known<br>this world that I see today<br>and I've got a feeling<br>it won't fade away
and I won't end my days, wishing that love would come along,<br>cause you are in my life where you belong<br>now that I've found you<br>I'll call off the search
