Music Monday! I love sharing songs that are recorded live and raw, with crowd chatter and background noise included... for those who really enjoy the whole experience, it's a nice way to feel like you were actually there. This one is a cover my band and I did of "Fix You" by Coldplay. It's such a beautiful song with an emotional build up. One of those that gives me chills every time.
Going in, it takes a good 30 seconds until I start singing.. but that creates the atmosphere, if you can imagine it. Because this song starts soft and slow, it's natural for the crowd (especially in a bar setting) to be a bit distracted and talk among themselves... but the best part, in my opinion, is when the build up happens because there is a shift in everyone's attention and they remained engaged til the end. Stick it out thru the recording.. let us give you the feels.
