Ingrid Michaelson is Breakable

Ingrid Michaelson

Have you ever thought about what protects our hearts? Just a cage of rib bones and other various parts.
This is a cute song, from a really cute girl. I didn’t pick the song because she was cute — I learned she was cute only after I was in like with this song. I like it a lot.

I’ve noticed a recurring theme in my musical tastes lately — Repetitive notes. It started with Rufus Wainwright the other day. A lot of music I like a highly repetitive motif, I can’t help it. I hope you like this song.

Stay tuned. Tomorrow is Sunday, and that means I’ll be mixing things up a bit.

From the Album: Girls and Boys

    unfortunately, i’m going to have to vote “no” on this one. The lyrics are sweet, but the song is too dull and the vocalist is too plain for me. i was bored nearly to death.

    :X that’s only strike 1 in my book though, if my opinion counts for anything….

    i would have to disagree i quite llike ingrid’s sound, she has an elasticity to her voice that you dont find often in the more mainstream artists. Have you ever heard of Eva Cassidy? she has a pretty amazing voice too…

    I’m with Mary, nothing special or different about her.

    I don’t think you can compare the voice-quality of Ingrid to Eva Cassidy. Eva Cassidy possessed a warmer tone and a larger range…but we might not have heard Ingrid find her voice yet…as I’ve heard some of her keyboarding-in-dank-basements stuffs (even churchy songs,) and her voice was so-o high and kinda high school choir-y and I quite agree that her voice now is better.

    Her lyrics strike me as kind of high-school dear diary, pain of my heart, puppy dog crush kind of stuff– but there’s a place in this world for that too, and lots of little mall-going kids for whom her music will be a salve to the bumps of learning how to date.

    My friend in the city is now engaged to the last guy Ingrid dated/lived with…and hearing (non-detailed) details of their relationship, I bet much of her first CD was about him. Sucks for my girl to have to listen to all that whiny little girl imature stuff…good for t.v. though. I predict Ingrid makes a boatload of cash off of soundtracks and such…am not surprised that the KING of emo-brooklyn stuff has caught on to her– Zach Braff.

    i love ingrid! she’s a very sweet person. and her voice is fun.

    and she has a friend there in yankee-land named

    (minus the myspace stuff) who has a great acoustical sound and a very nice beard, i might add.
