An idea for a new blog series came to me several months ago, and today I'm finally implementing it.
I don't know about you, but as much as I love music, it's extremely, extremely rare for me to find an album--be it pop, alternative, Christian, soundtrack, whatever--that I love in its entirety (or very close thereto). So when I do encounter one where I think, "Wow, every single one of these songs [or nearly every single one] is great and I love them all", it's a cause for much jubilation. Especially if that album stays appealing to me over a long period of time.
And so, since a different kind of post is always nice to try, I thought it might be fun to occasionally "spotlight" one such album here on the blog: an album that is entirely or almost entirely Olivia-approved.
Now, I'm not a big country person. I'm really not. However, this particular specimen is right up my alley. I think a lot of it is due to the fact that Sarah doesn't feel the need to insert any kind of twang into her singing voice, so the songs are both beautiful and restful.
You can listen to the full album here, if you wish; and I'll just highlight my personal favorites. (Note: I don't think I've ever listened to "You Take Me All the Way," but all the others, as I recall, are decent.)
✾ "Where Cowboys Ride"
✾ "Starry Eyes"
✾ "Halley's Comet"
(Seriously, how are her songs so gentle and aching??)
I love this song. It reminds me of one of my characters, and it's so soothing and understanding and cathartic. ♥
Have you guys listened to any of Sarah Darling's music?
What do you think of the idea of this new series? ;)
