Song for a Sunday

Jewel is pretty well known in the US, I think – indeed, her first (and, to my mind, worst) album is one of the biggest sellers ever there – but she’s not made much of a splash in the UK.  I first heard her song ‘Hands’ in 2004, when my friend Hannah played it to me, and have loved it ever since.  Enjoy!

    This is my song of the moment:

    Meaghan Blanchard is a Canadian singer/songwriter with such a gorgeous voice. I have the CD, but there's clearly no accompanying video, just this live performance. I'm at the stage of playing this obsessively!

    This takes me back! Jewel was huge in Australia in the 1990s. I didn't know she was still around.

      Yes! Not the same level of success, but she's pretty consistent with albums every couple of years…

    I actually liked her first album a lot with one BIG caveat, I can't listen to the words. The lyrics are laughably bad. But I like the music and it reminds me of when I lived in Honolulu, so it is a bit of a nostalgia trip for me.

      I find it all a bit too meandery for my liking… but I love some of her later albums. And posting this has made me listen to her two latest albums on Spotify all yesterday…
