In 2007 I randomly saw Sara Bareilles perform. It was right before her mainstream breakthrough with her album Little Voice and the mega-single “Love Song”. At the time, my friends and I had no clue who this singer was. It was in part because the emcee of the concert, Mr. Belding (no, I’m not joking), never said her last name and because the subtle awesomeness of her performance was (literally) drowned out by the rapper that followed. Months later, “Love Song” hit the radio and I realized that I already knew who Sara Bareilles was just when everyone else was getting behind , liked her music (a lot)
Bareilles’ upcoming album is Kaleidoscope Heart. The first single from the album is “King of Everything”, another catchy kiss off song. I just watched the music video and here it is:
Another song that Bareilles performed months ago is a sort of Christmas ode to Jersey Shore. It is hilarious.
This is the song that made me love Sara Bareilles. Anyone who can combine the utter stupidity of Jersey Shore and Rhianna into a hilarious, entertaining song is great in my book.
