Fiona Apple Sings And We Listen

ITunes Originals – Fiona Apple

Today is Tunes With Tuesday and I am featuring singer Fiona Apple.

She has such emotion in her voice, especially in this song. You can tell that she connects with the song, titled “Never Is A Promise”.

The music of “Never Is A Promise” is haunting in both its melody and its words. There are many layers:

  • Not being understood by someone who you know well
  • Being doubted by others
  • Not understanding our surroundings
  • Figuring out our own beliefs

Life really is a journey. We make and lose connections throughout our life. I like that Fiona Apple is featured in the video and there is little else around her. She is the focus, without big visual effects needed to make this video powerful. Her voice holds enough power on its own.

Take care my Poetic Friends,

    I really enjoyed this song, it’s message and her voice, Christy. I also agree with you about singing in a video and the soloist being the main focus. Thanks for sharing! xo

    I do know someone who is going through very stormy weather in her life. Although I will probably never truly understand what she is going through I know I will always truly keep her in my heart as I know she has a beautiful soul.

    Christy, thank you for sharing this song and it reminds me of her and why I will never give up believing in her.

    As I have a promise to keep her.
