I'd heard her music before. I remembered that I liked the few songs I'd heard of hers, and didn't think much more about it, until Friday when I was driving into town. I had the radio on, and a song came on that I hadn't heard before. It gave me chills. The soulful sound, to my ears, was like the taste of rich dark chocolate on the tongue. It compelled me to pull over to the side of the road, dig out my phone, and Shazam that tune. I was pleasantly surprised to learn that it was a song by Paloma Faith.
This is my favourite song now, and I may just follow in my friends' footsteps and download her album. Santa gave me an iTunes card that I haven't yet redeemed, and this seems the perfect reason to do so. Here's Paloma Faith with Only Love Can Hurt Like This.
So do you like this song? Is it your kind of music?
