just another diamond day
I first heard Vashti Bunyan from Michael's ipod when we were in NYC
I'd never heard of her before, but she completely entranced me. It was so beautiful to wake up to her voice. He'd set her song as an alarm.
Of course, I'm hardly alone here. She's quite the sensation among the cool kids...forty years after her introduction, of course. Someone's even put together this cute little video.
I don't know how, but her music sends me back in time to my earliest memories I think. Lord knows my parents didn't listen to folk music.
In fact, I can't think of a more ridiculous idea, knowing my parents, but it must have been in the very atmosphere back then, because listening to her is like almost being back in the womb.
