Kimya Dawson

Even though this one is a relatively recent discovery for me Kimya Dawson's I Like Giants made it into my top ten voting list.



This is a live recording similar to the one I first heard and fell in love with and I much prefer it to the album version (Remember That I Love You, 2006) which sounds a bit like there is an icecream truck driving around in the background (despite which it is still a great song).

The lyrics are beautiful and calming
We all become important when we realize our goal
Should be to figure out our role within the context of the whole
And yeah, rock and roll is fun, but if you ever hear someone
Say you are huge, look at the moon, look at the stars, look at the sun
Look at the ocean and the desert and the mountains and the sky

Say I am just a speck of dust inside a giant's eye
I am just a speck of dust inside a giant's eye
I am just a speck of dust inside a giant's eye
And I don't wanna make her cry
Cause I like giants


and the verse about swimming in the ocean always reminds me fondly of Lilysea and our mini road trip.

Another song I really like is Singing Machine from the amusingly titled Hidden Vagenda album (2004).




open up your eyes and see the beauty over there
open up our ears and be surprised by what you hear
'cause it's not just on the radio, it's not just on the video
it isn't all downloadable, there's music everywhere...

...it doesn't matter what you look like, doesn't matter what you sound like
doesn't matter if they like you, just remember to be kind
and tell someone you miss them, tell someone you need them
tell someone you wish you could be with them all the time


Dawson is also part of the duet The Moldy Peaches who recently found a measure of acclaim for their work on the soundtrack to the movie Juno.



Such a cute song :)
