Sara Bareilles is the kind of artist that can tell you what your heart is feeling before you know how to say it yourself.

During my last quarters of college, Uncharted seemed to be on repeat because I had no idea what was ahead of me. King of Anything, Machine Gun and That Guy's An Asshole all seem to be the best way to tell rude people to STFU. And Hold My Heart is what I believe my heart would sound like in music form.

I went to see Sara with Norris and while we waited in line we met the sweetest, funniest new friends. It's funny how music can do that. It's so personal but so universal.

If you haven't heard any of her music, here's an a cappella version of her song Gravity. You guys, this girl is the shit.

PS - That night, she debuted her new song That Guy's An Asshole. She printed out the chorus and passed it along to the audience so we could sing along. I don't admire Sara because she cusses a lot, but rather, I admire her because she's not afraid to. Freedom with words! Delicate ears, be warned: it's perfectly cathartic.

chorus to "that guy's an asshole"

  14. first of all, i love swearing! :) secondly, i had no idea sara bareilles was young and of the swearing type. i've heard her name, but never her music. for some reason i always thought she was some sort of opera-turned-pop singer and that never appealed to me. i'll have to go look up some of her songs now.
