16 has posted "Carousel" and it looks like the melody isn't played in the right hand! YESSSSSSS:

Hopefully this is the version we'll get in the music book!

I didn't say getting a grammy, just a nomination :) That seems to be more likely than Lord Victor recording an album although "More than this" is by Vanessa Carlton featuring Lord Victor (at least on my ipod LOL)

That's. So. Awesome.  :)

Still waiting for mine. Ugh.

I'm sure you will have it tommorow :) Sweden and England isn't that far away from each other.

What?!  I live in Canada and mine still hasn't come!

Hm, yeah, that is wierd ???

Nevermind.  I got mine today.   :)  How did you get two signed booklets?  Did you order 2 copies?

Two days ago Barnes and Noble was playing the entire Rabbits album.

That's so awesome!!

Did she maybe cover a song too?  Cuz she doesn't seem to be looking at them while playing.  Or maybe it's just for show/something the camera can zoom in on while she plays?

Hmm, that's weird.  According to the HMV locations here in Vancouver, there are 4 copies in one location, 5 in another, and 10 in the biggest store.  That's amazing, especially in a city where she's not very popular (unfortunately).

But this album's not meant for mainstream. And with music this good, so what? Grade: B

EXACTLY.  Finally, a reviewer who understands that just because an album isn't commercially appealing and sells a zillion copies, doesn't mean it's a failure.

Just checked and it says the release date for the book is now Sept. 1st.  Sounds possible.  I checked a few other sites but they all still say July 1st.

Umm so i just talked with Vanessa (literally and in person) cause my cousin snuck me backstage of the Santa Rosa concert and me and my friend, Anna asked her about the book. And she just finished it and transcribed everything so it should be really good!!!

Wow, Vanessa transcribed the whole thing herself?  Really?  If so, that's awesome.  In that case, I have a tiny bit of hope that it won't be super messed up like Hal Leonard's transcriptions usually are.

I also went to my music store on July 1st and asked if they had the book, but they said it wasn't in their system.  All the other online book stores have the book as unavailable, so I'm guessing the book will be released sometime after July 26th.

I actually have this a whole music video playing in my head whenever I hear "Who's to Say" that I posted in detail on my blog here:  It makes me cry whenever I hear the song and think about it.

Here's a somewhat shortened version of it that is still pretty long, just a warning:

A young guy is at the piano.  He’s lipsynching to the song, singing it.  It’s morning, and everything is oversaturated with whites and yellows, bright colors.  Obviously it’s sunny and it’s morning.

The young guy walks down the street with his boyfriend, while people around him give them looks.  Someone tells them, “you need to grow” and he replies, “Well, speed’s the key.”  They continue walking down the street, content with each other as people look on, ignorant of who they are.

At the first chorus, he sits watching the news on TV.  People are protesting same-sex marriage, holding up signs that say gay people don’t deserve it, that they should go to hell, etc.  Mean things.  He watches as new reporters interview some people, who seem really angry and wave their signs around.  Insert some shots of gay people on the street also protesting, holding hands, in tears.

The young man sits at a dinner table, talking with his mother.  She scolds him about being in a relationship (“Friends are the ones that [you] lose, ’cause they bleed before you”, “sometimes family are the one s you choose”) while he tries to reason with her (“It’s too late now, I hold onto this life I’ve found”).  The camera dips below the table and he’s holding hands with his boyfriend, who is giving him strength even though he’s not there.

2nd chorus: He keeps reasoning with his mother — not in an angry, “why don’t you understand me?!” teenager way, but in a “Well, mom, who’s to say?”  Intercut this with more shots of him and his boyfriend with saturated background, sunlight pouring around them as they lean in with closed eyes and also intercut with more images from the TV of couples holding hands, protesting their right to marry.

Bridge: The young man at the dinner table still, telling his parents bluntly how they don’t remember what it is like to be young and in love, as they only stare back at him.  At “You never really knew”, they get up from the table and walk away from him.  The camera pulls back as they leave, leaving him sitting all alone at the table.  Fade to black.

The couple pack up his room.  There are slight moments when they have a laugh but they more or less pack without any emotion.  It’s not really a day to be happy nor sad.  Bittersweet.  The parents watch from the doorway, trying to hide their disappointment and also sadness at watching their son leave.  The young man picks up a picture frame of him and his family.  At “but we’re not welcome”, he turns to his parents in the doorway and puts the picture back down, not packing it.

At “soon, we’ll be driving”, the couple drive away from the house as it gets smaller and smaller in the mirror.

Last chorus: Intercut with flashfowards of the couple moving in to their new place, more with the protest on television, and the couple with the light around them.  At “I can’t live without you” they’re both in tuxedos, getting married.  He lipsynchs to his boyfriend the line, which is also cut with the young man at the dinner table again, telling his parents who they are for telling him otherwise.  Intercut more scenes with people at the protest saying, “maybe you’re too old to remember”, and “I just feel it when we’re together” with the couple in the car, driving to their future, as well as the wedding.  At the “Who’s to say?”, the young man asks his parents, his husband at their wedding, the people on tv, and lastly, with the light around them, and at “Who are they anyway?” the young guy looks directly into the camera and mouths the words.

Back to 1st verse: back to the first scene, where it’s morning and the young man is playing piano and singing.  His boyfriend (not yet husband) comes into the room, smiling.  The young man stops playing and smiles back.  He gets up from the piano, walks over to him and kisses him.

I'd like one as well, but I live in Canada.  Does that affect anything or matter if I put my name on the list?

I'm really loving her softer vocal. The version of Fools Like Me is amazing imo. So want to see her live, gig looked amazing  :)

Where's the videos? Can anyone direct me?

And yes. Fools Like Me is amazingly gentle.

Tall Tales is first.  Skip to around 5:40 for Fools like Me.
