21 February 2012 - Natasha Bedingfield - These Words

First of all, welcome to all of you coming from elbo.ws.  So happy to have you in our little blog.

Ms. Bedingfield was living in the shadow of her less talented brother, Daniel.  He had a minor hit.  VH1 in the US, however, heard this little ditty, and picked it up, and it became a minor hit.  Of course, Natasha followed this song with the far bigger single "Unwritten", and this simple song that names its chord progression (D-E-F) and inspirations (Byron, Shelley, Keats) was forgotten.  By everyone except this blog!

The video for this song is charming, too.  The boomboxes are simply drawn to Natasha!  Oh, wait.  You mean this wasn't the video you saw for this song?  That's because it was released for the US only.  The rest of the world saw this video, which was equally clever in its use of table settings and multiple Natashas.
