Song 33: Basia Bulat, “In The Night” (2007)Posted: February 3, 2013
I’m not sure what else to say about this one. Don’t get me wrong, I love the vocals, the lyrics, the melody, the production… But the autoharp is the backbone here, in a way that I didn’t think an autoharp could ever accomplish. It makes the song lighter than air, with Basia Bulat’s substantial voice pulling it down just a little bit, tugging at the corners.
One specific thing I love: the piano solo. It’s just perfect for the song, and it’s a little song in itself. It comes at just the right time, does its thing, and leaves. Fantastic.
