Just for now…

Watch this video and you will see the wonder of my new girl crush, Imogen Heap. Maybe you will not realize, just at first, how astounding it is, what she is doing here. Each and every sound of this song is made and recorded by her voice or her hands right then, right there…fed into samplers and looped as she cues them. Live. Nothing has been pre-recorded.

Maybe you don’t realize this but I am going to just tell you and I know you will trust me, your friend Mrs Metaphor, when I say that this is astounding. It truly is. I hope you enjoy it as much as I do.

It’s that time of year
Leave all our hopelessness’s aside
If just for a little while
tears stop right here
I know we’ve all had a bumpy ride.
I’m secretly on your side

  1. This is exactly what I needed today. Thank you Mrs., for showing me the song that I have had living in my heart for weeks.

  2. You know in watching the video over and over and over (call me obsessive, yes…) something that strikes me is also this…she genuinely seems to enjoy herself in performing. I think, for me at least, this is the mark of a truly exceptional entertainer. It’s one thing to make remarkable noises, it’s quite another to be able to show joy in the process. I love that.

  3. OMG THAT WAS AMAZING. I WANT A CD! You can see the and hear the joy in her and it totally lightened my heart!

  4. It’s not my kind of thing but even so, as Lord Vader would say.

    “Impressive…” 😉

    It takes serious talent to build something like that up, let alone something so absolutely bang on perfectly in tune. Perfect pitch has nothing on that!

    Cheers

  5. Hi Mrs.,
    Oh as a Democrat, this song has been ringing in my heart the last few months….

    It’s that time of year,
    Leave all our hopelessnesses aside (if just for a little while)
    Tears stop right here,
    I know we’ve all had a bumpy ride (I’m secretly on your side)

    How did you know?
    It’s what I always wanted,
    You can never have too many of these
    Will ya quit kicking me under the table?
    I’m trying, will somebody make her shut up about it?
    Can we settle down please?

    It’s that time of year,
    Leave all our hopelessnesses aside (if just for a little while)
    Tears stop right here,
    I know we’ve all had a bumpy ride (I’m secretly on your side)

    Bite your tongue
    Deep breaths
    Count to ten
    Nod your head
    (sniff sniff)

    I think something is burning,
    Now you’ve ruined the whole thing
    Muffle the smoke alarm
    Whoever put on this music
    Had better quick, sharp, remove it
    Pour me another
    Oh, don’t wag your finger at me

    It’s that time of year,
    Leave all our hopelessnesses aside (if just for a little while)
    Tears stop right here,
    I know we’ve all had a bumpy ride (I’m secretly on your side)

    Will ya get me outta her, Get me outta here, Get me outta here (repeats til end)
    Just for now
    Just for now (repeats)
