Jewel is my favorite female artist. Her vocal range is from an A2 to a full on G6!
Some of you might have heard this song, but have you ever watched the woodstock video? If not, watch this video. She plays with the audience and shows what a true performer she is. She also hits all of that range, its fabulous and fun. Watch the lead guitar and her facial expressions when they play together. I dare you not to smile. 😉
Inside are the lyrics of the original song she recorded, (and a sunset from this week) although this version has much more.
Luna (my dog) loved the meow meow meow part of this song, her ears shot up and she watched her for some time.
People living their lives for you on TV
They say they're better than you and you agree
He says "Hold my calls from behind those cold brick walls"
Says "Come here boys, there ain't nothing for free"
Another doctor's bill, a lawyer's bill
Another cute cheap thrill
You know you love him if you put in your will
We try to hustle them, try to bustle them, try to cuss them
The cops want someone to bust down on Orleans Avenue
Another day, another dollar, another war,
Another tower went up, where the homeless had their homes
So we pray to as many different Gods as there are flowers
But we call religion our friend
We're so worried about saving our souls
Afraid that God will take His toll
That we forget to begin
Some are walking, some are talking, some are stalking their kill
You got social security, but that doesn't pay your bills
There are addictions to feed and there are mouths to pay
So you bargain with the Devil, say you're OK for today,
You say that you love them, take their money and run
Say it's been swell, sweetheart, but it was just one of those things
Those flings, those strings you've got to cut,
So get out on the streets, girls, and bust you butts.
