Kina Grannis - "Iris"
I first heard her beautiful cover of Elvis’ “Can’t Help Falling In Love With You” in Crazy Rich Asians, and I’ve been hooked ever since.
Her delicate cover of the GooGoo Dolls’ megahit from the Movie “City Of Angels” is both angelic and heratbreaking. She found a way to bring something authentic and new to a song that we’ve all heard so many times we stopped listening to it. Now, it’s fresh again and tugging on your heartstrings.
I’m sure she does more than covers, and now I’m interested enough to search and find out!
So today, with the past coming back like a song, I choose Kina Grannis’ cover of The GooGoo Dolls’ “Iris” as my, delicate, strong, balanced, song for a, remember when, take me back, lead me on, Thursday.
