  2. [...] This next song is really beautiful and accompanied by an artsy fartsy video with lots of weird but beautiful images. I like this song so much because they slowly add additional instruments that help make the song sound continuously fresh. The reason I’m not a big fan of ballads is because they usually bore me. Most ballads have a repetitive nature, and the most that changes is perhaps the song moves up an octave and gets a wee bit faster. That doesn’t really do it for me. This song is awesome because around the 1:40 mark there is a gorgeous little piano break. After the piano break the rest of the song sounds slightly different as they include…if I remember my music classes properly…just a simple snare drum and metal brush, and then again at the 3:00 mark, they add an additional sound again. I was worried I would be bored when I first started listening to this song but absolutely not. From her warm voice, to simple makeup and crisp white shirt, to the awesome filming, I love this song.
