I'm on a my favorite things kick so I thought I'd follow up with one of my favorite songs by Zero 7, Somersault. I listen to this CD (When it Falls) in my car all the time and this song, well this song makes me woozy. I swear I go into an altered state when I hear Sia's voice. That woman just hits it right.
Here's a video of their only Televised performance in the US. They played on Jimmy Kimmel Live.
I especially love the mocking dance they do. Fabulous...
Just goes to show you don't need to shake your booty on stage half naked to give a rockin' performance.
You would somersault in sand with me
If you buy the CD, try and get it at a store like Amoeba as we need to support our local independent music stores! If you do get it you'll hear the end of the song that was cut out of this performance. It's that last couple of minutes of somersault, the instrumental part, that makes me come undone...
And whatever you do, buy their album "Simple things." It is their best one, hands down. You won't regret it.
I have a few of their songs downloaded on my iPod. It's great chill out on the plane music.
