I'm very often humming, whistling, or singing a song to myself - more often than not, lately, one of Harry's. I was singing his version of Ultralight Beam and suddenly imagined it without guitars, or drums, but a massive pipe organ. I wish I had the tools to record my idea, but I can hear it very clearly in my mind - it would work. Part hymn and part a Bach organ adagio mixed with Harry's bluesy singing. Thoughts? Thanks so much!
I have an ask about what songs Harry should sing on Live Lounge, and honestly I am thinking about a lot of bluesy songs for him. I think he would do such great Talking Heads covers– because his aesthetic is just off-beat enough, he’s just quirky and smart enough to do it. I also want him to cover The Smiths, maybe Smokey Robinson and Norah Jones (Come Away with Me).
I think his voice sounds tremendous with any acoustic instrument. Why not pipe organ? Gospel-like. Talking Heads’ Burning Down the House, Psycho Killer, or And She Was.
