Song: Cry Me a River
Artist: Diana Krall
Favorite Lyric: You told me love was too plebeian, Told me you were through with me, and Now you say you love me Well, just to prove that you do, Come on and cry me a river, I cried a river over you (name me one other song that uses the word plebeian!)
Significance: I first heard Diana Krall in college when my boss lent me her CD (When I Look in Your Eyes.) I hadn’t listened to much jazz before and it took time to get used to it, but I did keep listening because it was interesting, and I grew to really love it. This song is from a later CD. I haven’t heard her new release yet, Glad Rag Doll. I stopped running out to buy her stuff after she married Yoko O – I mean Elvis Costello. I saw her perform on Letterman and Colbert though, and I may have to investigate further.
