Day 384 - Ingrid Michaelson - The Hat

DAY 384
Ingrid Michaelson - "The Hat"
From "Girls & Boys"




I was enjoying this song tonight as I drove to a friends house and thought it would be a great one to pick this evening.

I had the great pleasure of seeing Ingrid in person on March 2nd and she was fantastic. Her vocals were as spot on as on the CD, but her personality and sense of humor nearly overshadowed her raging musical talent.

I adore her... and am so jealous... hahaha... not really. I just really admire her. I mean she kept our attention every moment. The portion of the show where she was playing piano and began questioning if the people above/beside the stage could see down her butt crack... it was just hilarious how candid and inviting she was. She made me a fan for life...

This song, "The Hat" is very creative and fun. Smart lyrics, (an Ingrid trait for sure), a fun arrangement, and it has some nice surprise change ups that are just invigorating!

I really like this YouTube clip of her performing the song live as it show cases a little bit of her on stage persona. :) Enjoy!

Hi Rachel,

I’ve been checking out your blog, and I wanted to tell you about Ingrid Michaelson, who is on tour now and coming through your area. There is a link below to her video. If you could show her some love on your blog, that would be awesome. Would love to know what you think about it.

Thanks!

Spencer
