This AWESOME song is from Season 3, part 1 of “The Sing-off“. I’m so glad someone told me about this A Cappella singing competition last season – and I was excited to see this year’s talent as well. This group is called “Delilah” and consists of ALL GIRLS – which makes it pretty special – their vocal ability exceptional. A group – with both beauty and amazing talent – I’m sure you’ll agree – they could win it all!
Enjoy their version of Bruno Mars‘ – “Grenade” and see why Ben Folds was so impressed with their “rolling 2nds” on the word “pain” so COOL!!
I can’t tell you why I love these song lyrics – but I identify with them somehow. I was singing this with a voice student of mine this last week – and I asked her, “What do you think these lyrics mean?” Interesting question, right?
I have found that the best song lyrics have a universal meaning. And even though the writer of these words was taking something from his real life – it usually is a personal story that inspires the best songs. This song is actually about a dream. The lead singer of Train lost his mother to cancer and had a weird dream about missing her. Enjoy it – it’s one of Train’s best songs and after listening to the song and seeing the lyrics – there is another video of Pat explaining about the dream and why he wrote the song. It’s really great!
Who’s your “Drops Of Jupiter” today? Who do you miss?

In my humble opinion – this is the best version of this song to date. David is much more than just the “American Idol” a couple of years ago – he is a very talented ballad singer. This song takes amazing control – the high note he reaches when singing ‘in the night’ is truly his own signature on song – never copied by another artist before or since and it is – magical. If you love the music from “Phantom of the Opera” – then you will love this version of “Music of the night“.
