On a Sara Bareilles Kick

by Mallary Tenore Tarpley

There are some songs I can listen to over and over again without getting tired of them. One of these songs is Sara Bareilles‘ cover of Peter Gabriel’s “In Your Eyes.” Mind you, I only found out about the song two weeks ago, but I’ve been listening to it a couple of times a day in between other tunes I like.

I’m hoping Sara sings it when I see her in concert this Wednesday at the House of Blues in Dallas. Having listened to so many of Sara’s songs from her CD, “Little Voice,” I have a feeling I might leave the concert nearly voiceless. I love belting out her songs and trying to imitate her voice. Part of what I like about her, too, is that every time I hear her perform on TV or talk during interviews, she seems so down-to-earth. I’m curious to see what kind of concert she’ll put on this Wednesday. Can’t wait!
