I'm one of those people who has some reason to relate to almost every single song they hear...even if it's just one line or something. Well...hopefully there are other people out there like that, haha.

I'll try to post all of mine without rambling or explaining them tooooo much. xP

To some degree I guess I've been able to relate to Pretty Baby, haha. The same probably goes for Unsung and Twilight. While I do like BNN, I haven't really had the same sort of connection with it as I have the with other two (and the upcoming) albums.

From Harmonium, the first one that comes to mind where actually being able to relate to a song is concerned is Afterglow. I love Afterglow so much, haha...when I first heard it I knew I liked it, but I never really had much of a reason to connect with it until last summer (2010).
For a very short while I could relate to parts of White Houses, but just a few lines. To some degree, I'm guilty of taking things out of context and applying them to my own life. Specifically "I'm so excited, I haven't spoken". I guess I kind of did that to the other part, too...that being the whole part about having friends you're really close to and then leaving them in a sort of bittersweet way. Sorry if I'm not making sense now. :x

Anyway...I can somewhat relate to Who's to Say and Private Radio, as well as a few specific lines of Annie.

From H&T, I'd say I've been capable of forming some connection with every song...perhaps not the entire song, but certainly lines. Even Nolita Fairytale. I'm sure few people can really FULLY relate to that song, but I think it's not too far fetched to relate to it because you've (at least temporarily) found a perfectly blissful environment/lifestyle for whatever reason...but maybe it's just me. XD
Anyway, the main ones I relate to (or have at some time been able to relate to) from H&T are Spring Street, Come Undone, The One, Heroes & Thieves, Home, and More Than This...that's a pretty big list...aaaack.

From her demo tape, I've actually been able to relate to Last Fall and Wonder for different reasons.

Sorry for rambling on and on and probably not making any sense at times. xP

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Re: Carousel Music Video

It's different from what I envisioned, but I'm very impressed! It seems a bit different from the others...but not too different. I do love it, though. <333

It's kind of how I always imagined a video for More Than This would be, if that makes sense. But I definitely love it for Carousel, of course.

At first I wasn't too sure how I felt about Perez Hilton posting it...but that's going to be good for it! :D

General Vanessa Carlton Discussion / Re: Vanessa Carlton Dream

Last night I had a dream that I listened to thirty second samples of every song on the album, and that those two bonus tracks that were listed on Wikipedia were there. All I remember hearing was IDWTBAB and the piano from Fairweather Friends, though. I was so excited, haha.

I had another dream forever ago where I listened to the whole album at night while trying to sleep, and it was much, much longer than it really is. Also, TTFS wasn't on it, and I was very disappointed since I think it's probably going to be my favorite. :(

I've never tweeted before, but I do have an account...I'll try this. :D

I've always loved the art for Heroes and Thieves. These are really nicely done, especially those birds.

I've been lurking here for ages, so I figured I'd finally sign up. :)

My name is Amy, and I live in Southern Indiana (very close to Louisville, Kentucky). I've been a fan of Vanessa for several years now, and I'm extremely excited about Rabbits on the Run. I can't wait for it to come out! >.<

I'm not sure what else to say, so here are a few tidbits:
- Favorite Vanessa song is probably Afterglow, although I'm also quite fond of The One, Annie, and now Tall Tales for Spring (among others). I can't wait for an album version of TTFS, heheh. :P
- I regularly change my mind on the subject of which of her albums is my's always a toss up between Harmonium and Heroes & Thieves. Not that I dislike BNN, because it's great, too. x)
- I'm hoping to start taking piano lessons later this year or next year. Most of my favorite musicians play piano, so I feel like I'm missing out, haha.
- Other artists I frequently listen to include: Regina Spektor, Amanda Palmer/The Dresden Dolls/Evelyn Evelyn, Nicole Atkins, KT Tunstall, Norah Jones, Elvis Presley, and Dean Martin. ^_^
- I have a habit of doing nothing but lurking on pretty much all websites, but I'll try to actually contribute here. >.>

Sorry for the massive post, heh.
