Just Because Music: Colbie Caillat’s “Brighter Than The Sun”

Because of my Mom’s and my kids’ needs, I’ve been spending an inordinate amount of time in the car lately.  Sometimes I listen to audio books, but that’s not the best way for me to take in information.  I usually fall back on the radio.  After years of listening to music from the past (both before  my birth and during my lifetime), I’ve switched over to listening to current pop music.  At long last, the years of rap seem to be dying away and melody is making a come back.

My latest favorite song is Colbie Caillat’s Brighter Than The Sun.  While I was looking around for a good YouTube clip, I came across this great acoustic version:  Just Colbie and an accompanist who adds voice and guitar.  I don’t mind electronic pop at all — indeed, I occasionally like it a lot — but this is lovely:

If you want the studio version, complete with lots of musicians and sound mixing, it’s here.

    As I’ve said, I’m not a “music guy”, but that was lovely……
     
    Is it because of the simplicity?  It reminds me of the music I used to hear when I was (a lot) younger.
     
    Anyhow, I’ve sent the link to my brother, the music guy…..who names every tune played at the ballpark!!
