Though this song is hastaged at pop, I found it to be a bit more jazz/soulful piano. I don’t mean that as a negative statement either. I love how her voice is softly framed with the simple background music of piano and a very soft drum beat that is barely there. It’s got me in a wistful kind of mood. Her voice is the real gem here, it’s strong, sweet and carries a lot of soul. My first thought was it reminded me of the music from one of those Charlie Brown Christmas cartoons back in the 80’s due to the piano in the intro of the song.
I enjoyed all the elements of this song. The lyrics were solid and the music a perfect accompaniment to her vocal abilities. I have a fairly limited knowledge of this genre of music. However I do enjoy Billy Joel from time to time. I could easily fit this song on a list with some of his slower, down tempo works. It really strikes me as one of those songs you listen to on a rainy day as you sit by the window and contemplate life.
