20 years of Edie Brickell

After recently reading my friend Kerri's latest post about her love for music, I was inspired to share one of my own favorite singers.

The beautiful Edie Brickell.

I can't believe it's been TWENTY years that I've been listening to this amazing and talented woman. It was 1989 when my older brother (a high schooler at the time) introduced young 5th-grader me to her music.

It would be way too hard to pick a favorite album of Edie's because I seriously love each and every one of them.

Not only is she poetic, but her songs are meaningful and most of the time tell of some heartfelt, moving story. A few of her songs are so incredibly dear to me that I would honestly say they have been almost healing to my life.

This one is called Once in a Blue Moon. We've all felt this way about one person at some time in our lives. :)

Here are a few more songs I found on Youtube, really just for listening, as most of these don't include the original videos. Enjoy!

1.Green Everything about this song reminds me of my childhood, and how easy it is to believe, when you're that young, the illusion that the grass is always greener on the other side. . .
2.Stay Awhile Very romantic song, one of my faves!
3.Me by the Sea Beautiful song about being alone and loneliness.
4.Circle This song never fails to make me cry, reminds me of friends from college so much.
5. Little Miss S A sad tale of a famous young woman's life ruined by drugs.
6. Lost in the Moment A tragedy from many different perspectives. A bit of a tearjerker.
7. Good Times One of the best FEEL GOOD songs I've ever heard. (includes original video)

I hope you find an appreciation for this lovely music as much as I have.
If you haven't already, check out Edie's WEBSITE, where you'll find two more songs, I Get Mean and Stories We Tell Ourselves. You'll love the adorable video footage of both!
