Two Ships passing in the night, the age old metahpor. Hmmm… Not exactly a strong opening for this Single of the Day entry, but I figured I’d give a whirl. That’s the risk in working things out in the public’s view. Sometimes you come up with brilliance, sometimes you fall flat on your face. So far I think I’ve gotten off to a rough start with this one. I’ll half to send an apology to Amy.
Actually this is much more a fairytale type of song. I think the thing that really grabs me on this song is the triplet-four feel that you don’t get in many songs. Well, not in a lot of songs unless they’re Celtic in influence (most of the time anyway). Actually I’ve written at least two songs that I can think of off the top of my head that do this, Echo and All The Things. I know I’ve done others but I’m not thinking of them at the moment. However this isn’t about me, it’s about Amy and her song.
This fairytale does actually involve two hopeful lovers, a princess and her male counterpart. Its also about communicating on levels beyond just speech.
Seems like I’ve been on a female songwriter kick. But hey, I happen to know a lot of talented females. Go figure. Amy’s album is a little inconsistent to me from start to finish. But there are a couple of other songs like Rosalie and Two Ships which are very good. I haven’t had a chance to check out her latest CD. Like all artists I would expect that she’s gotten better with a little time and growth.
In case you’re wondering why you’ve heard Amy’s name before it’s because I mentioned her on a previous post where I blogged about her friend Jenny Bruce.
By the way, have you purchased any of the songs so far? Why not?
Double by the way: Have you told two friends about Single of the Day? Why not?
