Somebody somebody somewhere keeps me in mind


I mentioned in a recent post that I've become addicted to the 'comedy' podcast My Favorite Murder with comedians Karen Kilgariff and Georgia Hardstark. I'd followed Karen for ages on Twitter, and I highly recommend following her because she's hilarious:

In an effort to be more vulnerable today I chose jeans that make me look like a lost baby (x)

You always know a girl wants a serious relationship in a movie if she rides a bike to work (x)

My therapist is out of town so if you see me I'd appreciate it if you'd make a sad face, hold both palms out and say "That's a lot to hold." (x)

When I was finally able to distinguish Georgia's voice from Karen's, I realized I really, really, really like hearing it. It's kind of raspy/scratchy, and it's lovely (though of course today I learned from the most recent episode that she smokes!). So out of curiosity to match a face with a voice, I searched for videos of her on YouTube, and found out she's a singer-songwriter! Which is basically the best result when you love hearing someone's voice.

So I decided I wanted to share some of my favorite songs of her's I came across.

"Solid 9"

If only life was like a sitcom
If only I could play the husband
Then I could just be fat and funny
and you'd be hot, and shut your mouth 

But we all know our roles 
it's impossible; it never will be otherwise
Men fall in love first through their eyes
And second through their...eyes

"Jesus Walks"

Jesus lived then he had to die
Because of your sins
Because of how much you lie

"Gimme Mine"

I'm holding out for that old-time feeling
And I just wanna know 
Somebody somebody somewhere keeps me in mind
It's a heavy load
But it's worth repeating
Everybody got some
Gimme gimme gimme gimme mine

A live album featuring these three songs is available on iTunes, titled Live at the Bootleg. More recently she seems to be working with a guy named Drennon Davis, and here they are performing "The High Song" on Conan. (They also have an album together on iTunes called I Don't Care I Like It).
