Young the Giant - Islands
besides my newborn fetish for Young the Giant, i absolutely love the way they performed this song. in the beginning — sung so beautifully with perfectly kept tempo and the eerie absence of music. then the beat kicks in — a beat that makes you literally feel the music’s presence. ahh doesn’t get better than this. (the gentle waves in the background help too haha)
i can’t wait to see them live on february 9th at the fillmore. counting the days!
today seems to be disney day and this just topped it. yup. i just cried in my cubicle…
So This Happened of the Day: Four real-life Disney Princesses — Paige O’Hara (the voice of Belle), Lea Salonga (the singing voice of Fa Mulan and Jasmine), Anika Noni Rose (the voice of Tiana) and Jodi Benson (the voice of Ariel) — take the stage at Disney’s D23 Expo to perform “A Dream Is a Wish Your Heart Makes” after receiving the company’s highest accolade: The Disney Legends award.
my entire childhood just flashed before my eyes. amazing!
