As the great musical poet Kiki Dee once said, “I’ve got the music in me.” Seriously, music is part of my daily life, so I participate in Song Lyric Sunday.
This week’s theme is a song by an artist/singer who shares your name, and DJ Tara’s choice… is totally off-theme.
This theme is fantastic! I love a challenge. I searched for singers/artists named Tara and found several. But none of the songs, ya know, spoke to me. I know it doesn’t have to, but I’m me — Tara — and one of my rules is yes, a song must speak to me to be featured.
I thought about using my middle name, but decided against it. I even found a six-degrees-of-separation entry using my last name, but no! I wasn’t happy with any of those featuring those with my first name, then I shall go my own way. That’s what we Tara-s do, you know.
Since I couldn’t find one song by a Tara I liked, I’m showcasing songs and artists this Tara loves: two songs by a Michael that I love and a Kyla that I’m rooting for.
Before we start jammin’, know that I’m a The Voice girl as far as the competition goes (of course, as I’m a Late to the Party girl, this season is the first I’ve ever watched of that show… LOVE). But, as a former American Idol watcher, I’ve kept my eye on that reboot this year. There’s this one guy….
I heard the first song — from 2011 — for the first time when Michael J. Woodard sang it a few weeks ago (remember, I’m always late to the party). I know part of the reason this rocks is because Sia apparently can’t write a crappy song, but this kid… that last note. *faints*
It’s Sia’s Titanium.
And on a lighter note, here’s Michael J. singing Maybe This Time from Cabaret (with a lil’ bit at the beginning about him… such a cute personality!).
The kid’s got range, people. Alas, he’s not in the finale and I can’t even speak to how wrong that is. But hey, at least I still have my girl Kyla in The Voice. Here’s a video of Kyla Jade singing You Don’t Own Me (with awesome reactions by one Kelly Clarkson).
Excuse me while I go fan myself for a bit. I got all worked up what with the emotion and the vibrato and the notes in the stratosphere and … *faints again*.
