Music Passion for January 2013 (Jazz) – Come Away With Me by Norah Jones


This is my entry for January’s Music Passion.  Every month, bloggers are posting one of their favorite songs based on each month’s theme. This month’s theme is “jazz”.

I absolutely adore Norah Jones.  Her voice is purely magical and this song, “Come Away With Me” is my all time favorite.

The lyrics:

Come away with me in the night
Come away with me
And I will write you a song

Come away with me on a bus
Come away where they can’t tempt us
With their lies

I want to walk with you 
On a cloudy day
In fields where the yellow grass grows knee-high
So won’t you try to come

Come away with me and we’ll kiss
On a mountaintop
Come away with me
And I’ll never stop loving you

And I want to wake up with the rain
Falling on a tin roof
While I’m safe there in your arms
So all I ask is for you
To come away with me in the night
Come away with me

Norah was born Geethali Norah Jones Shankar, March 30, 1979, to famed sitar player the late Ravi Shankar and Sue jones.  She is also half sister to the talented Anoushka Shankar.  She has won 9 Grammy Awards and was declared Billboard’s top jazz artist of the decade for 2000-2009.

I hope you enjoy this as much as I do!
