Emiliana Torrini – Beggar’s Prayer
The voice is too beautiful a thing. Communication, through words or expression filled vowels; interaction, between performer and audience or between perfect halves of a couple in love. The communication here is the spinal chord of the song, the story and the imagery stand alone, the emotions are exposed but also soothed and resolved. For a voice to do all this and also combine captivating melody is extraordinary and powerful but most of all human. Strikingly human. Beggars Prayer is so totally intimate as to be heart touching.

p.s. Very proud of that banner on the right (courtesy of Videohead) and the rather basic linking that I clumsily attached to it. Almost as much as the subject matter.
