Will You Count Me In?

Anytime I listen to Colbie Caillat’s music, I just feel the summer sunshine radiate from inside me, which is something I need given another huge snow storm is blowing through here (#arcticlife).  Ever since her song “Bubbly” came out in 2007, I’ve been a fan of her music and the way her voice can warm your soul.

“Bubbly” is one of the few songs that can make my day better, and make me realize that love can actually exist.  I know that sounds cynical, but I hope one day to find someone who means to me what  these lyrics describe, but I’m skeptical if that will ever happen.

For Caillat, “Bubbly” has been her most successful song to date, peaking at number five on the Billboard Hot 100, and being certified platinum (selling over a million copies).  She has won two Grammys, one for her collaboration with Jason Mraz for their song “Lucky” and the other as a featured artist on Taylor Swift’s Fearless.  If you haven’t heard of Colbie Caillat (which would be weird if you haven’t), you should definitely check out her music.  I personally think her album Coco is her best (it features “Bubbly”), but her others are just as perfect.

And on a random note, I found this video of Caillat singing “Smelly Cat” from the hit 90s sitcom Friends.  It was the song that Phoebe (played by Lisa Kudrow) was famed for playing in multiple episodes.  If none of that means anything to you, the clip is still a good example of Caillat’s incredible vocals:
