Crazy

Wednesday, Chris and I went to see Michael Bublé .  We had meant it to be a break between our crazy New Years in Layton, Utah, and our crazy summer trip to visit cousins up in Silverdale, Washington.  Little did we know we'd also slip in a crazy whirl wind trip to Chicago, too. (That's in only three more weeks, so more on that VERY soon).  Meanwhile, the Crazy Love Michael Bublé concert. Sigh.  Michael, I think I'm in love!  :)

I thought I'd blog about a few of my favorite moments. The opening act was this super cool group called Natural 7.  They are an a cappella group with a style they call "Vocal Play" that makes all the music sounds vocally: guitar, clarinet, scratching, trumpet, electric guitar, harmonica, bass guitar, drums.  Seriously cool.  Check out this video (which I hope works!)...




They really built up the introduction to Bublé and by the time he took the stage the whole auditorium was... well... crazy :)  It was such an awesome show!  He's a little bit of a nerd and had did a funny little dance when the music moved him, but we had so much fun.  He really is quite charming and just a delight. 



I already mentioned the crazy crowd. Well, they set up a temporary stage a little further back on the floor and he walked through the crowd and then sang an acoustic version of "Home."  I love that song anyway, but at the end on the big screen, they put a picture of something quintissential Salt Lake City: the Salt Lake Temple.  I don't know how many in West Jordan appreciated that, but I loved it. Talk about going home!


I think Michael Bublé sang for an hour and a half.  Chris and I sang along to many of our favorite songs.  He sang my favorite song, "Feeling Good" as part of his encore. And, honestly, I think he saved the best for last.  I think I sang that song and every word of it at the top of my lungs :).  It was such a FUN concert.  He ended the night by saying that he wouldn't be able to do what he does without the support of his fans, so he sang us "Song For You."  On the very last chorus, he stood center stage without his band, set aside his mike, and just sang to the crowd.  It was a beautiful moment.

I've been so many places in my life and time
I've sung a lot of songs, I've made some bad rhyme
I've acted out my life in stages with ten thousand people watching
But we're alone now and I'm singing this song for you
I know your image of me is what I hope to be, I've treated you unkindly
But girl can't you see, there's no one more important to me
So darling can't you please see through me, 'cause we're alone now
And I'm singing my song for you, you taught me precious secrets
The truth with holding nothing, you came out in front
And I was hiding, oh, but now I'm so much better,
So if my words don't come together, listen to the melody
'Cause my love is in there hiding
I love you in a place where there is no space or time, I love you for my life
You are a friend of mine, and when my life is over
Remember, remember, remember when we were together
And we are alone now, and I was singing this song to you
We were alone, and I was singing, yeah singing
We were alone, and I was singing this song for you
Singing my song, I'm singing my song for you

  2. I am so stinkin' jealous I can hardly type! But if anyone deserves a fun night out, it is you and Chris... two of the hardest working women in this valley. Now I am going to go listen to my Michael CD's and pout.
