Can't Stop Listening To...

this fabulous Chrisette Michele song, Is This the Way Love Feels.

We need more female vocalists moving in the old tradition--using their voices as intruments and perfecting the swing between piano and forte, the slide into and out of crescendo.

Love the instrumental bridge/breakdown. The music reminds me of Prince, and Michele's howl is a soul-blues-gospel mesh.

Love it. Praising it for helping me make my way through a poem about the changing of the seasons today.
