k.d. lang [Sing-A-Long Saturday]

Posted on: September 26, 2009

This cross post comes from Chally.  Chally is a scary feminist.  Among other things, she’s a non-white, heterosexual, cis, disabled, middle class woman.  She lives in Australia and enjoys knitting, Doctor Who, and cake.  You can find her at Zero at the Bone.  She is also on Twitter as @challyzatb.  Also check out her previous guest post here.

k.d. lang is everyone’s favourite Canadian pop/country singer-songwriter. Whether she’s singing covers or originals – and I’m including both – her voice is something else. There’s a lot of brash and flashy music about and k.d.’s stands out for peeling it back. She lets you stop and go into yourself. So let’s get into it, shall we?

“Constant Craving” (lyrics here)

“Crying” (originally by Roy Orbison; lyrics here)

“Hallelujah” (originally by Leonard Cohen; lyrics here)

She’s a delight, isn’t she?

That’s one way to put it, yeah. 😀
