In Which I Discover I Enjoy KT Tunstall's Music
Monday, 03 March 2008 9:38 PM MST
Anyone who follows pop music would probably be astounded to learn that I'd never heard of KT Tunstall before becoming acquainted with her Suddenly I See track from Eye to the Telescope (2006) in the Devil Wears Prada (DVD) (Blu-Ray) soundtrack. It wasn't until 2008 that I decided to check Amazon's MP3 downloads and iTunes to add that track to my iTunes library, and that's when I learned KT Tunstall's name for the first time.
After buying Suddenly I See from Amazon, I had to see if there were any other KT Tunstall tracks I might be interested in. Before I knew it, I'd bought Other Side of the World and Black Horse and the Cherry Tree, both also from Eye to the Telescope from the iTunes store, and the track If Only from KT's 2007 album Drastic Fantastic from Amazon's MP3 store.
Just the other day, I shocked my sister Janna when I told her I'd never heard Black Horse and the Cherry Tree at all prior to my online purchases, and that my first introduction to that track was listening to an iTunes or Amazon MP3 preview.
In February, I noticed while listening to music while working that a friend's iTunes library (visible on the local network) had both KT Tunstall albums. So I was hooked. I knew I needed those CDs.
The CDs arrived near the end of February, and on Monday the 24th joined my iTunes library, then joined the CD rotation in my RAV 4. I tend to leave CDs in my RAV for months on end, as I did in March last year with Dana Glover's Testimony album.
I enjoy most tracks on both CDs, and really, really like quite a few. I haven't noticed myself skipping over any particular tracks yet, so I don't actively dislike any particular tracks. I guess that means I'm now officially a KT Tunstall fan!
