Heart & Soul… For Valentines Day

A few months ago, I reviewed the Seal cd over on Blissfully Domestic. At that time, I also mentioned here that I was very much in crazy love with this disc. Really. Seal has such a smooth voice that you can’t help but feel a little jealous that Heidi Klum gets to hear that voice singing in her shower.

Ahem. Where was I?

On February 12 at 9 CST, Seal will be featured on PBS Soundstage. I’m not a PBS-watcher, usually, but I may have to make an exception. And in the spirit of Looooooove, you can customize and send a SEAL e-card for the love of your life. I recommend sending it a day early… a nice gentle reminder about the special day approaching. Just click on the widget below to get started. Also, be sure to check out the widget in my sidebar on the right for some awesome tunes.

AND, one last thing? One2One Network has given me the chance to giveaway a signed copy of Seal’s SOUL album to one of you. Please leave me a comment telling me your DREAM Valentine’s gift (Mine? Getting to sleep in til the sun comes up, getting breakfast in bed, and automatically having good hair for the day without any effort). Tweet the contest and get an extra entry. (Giveaway limited to US residents). A WINNER WILL BE PICKED AT RANDOM ON TUESDAY, FEBRUARY 17.

Good luck (and share your love!).

Seal, "SOUL"

I don’t normally do reviews over on this site, but had the awesome opportunity to review Seal’s new album “Soul” for Blissfully Domestic, and wanted to blab a bit more about it here – not just because it rocks that much (though it does), but because if I tell you all how much it rocks, and include that awesome Seal widget, I get a chance to win free stuff (including a gift certificate to SpaFinders – and HELLO? Who needs a trip to a spa more than I do?!).

So, first of all, check out my review over on Blissfully Domestic. In case y’all couldn’t tell, I kinda sorta liked this cd a whole bunch. Oh yeah. It’s been playing non stop since I received it and honestly, I don’t think I’ll stop playing it any time soon. It’s THAT good. All classic songs – but thankfully, he didn’t redo “When A Man Loves a Woman” (which has been covered, what? Four hundred times?).

The album opens with “A Change Is Gonna Come” and in light of recent events in our country, seems so relevant even though the song was written decades ago. Seal’s version of “Stand By Me”? I think I like it better than Ben E. King’s. And “It’s Alright” by Seal – well, way better than that huge Huey Lewis cover-mess.

This is an excellent album, and one you’ll get stuck hearing if you’re stuck in the car with me anytime soon.
