Ingrid Michaelson – Breakable

5 Apr

Song of the Week

Girls & Boys, Sept. 2007

'Breakable' from the 2007 album Girls & Boys

This one’s not new, but it’s so beautiful I had to put it on here sometime!

I hadn’t heard of Ingrid Michaelson until I saw someone cover one of her songs on American Idol – not that I watch it… umm – well, anyway. I heard Didi Benami sing ‘The Way I Am’, and the lyrics were just so cute that I was googling her in no time.

The way Ingrid is able to put things across so simply is a skill not many singer-songwriters have today!

It means something different to everyone, but to me, this song is about life – it’s uplifting, and it’s sad, and beautiful. It’s like the breeze from an open window while listening to your loved one sleep.

Well, there you are. Easter Monday – hug someone you love, eat some chocolate and listen to this song.
