I am as constant as the northern star

Several days ago I was flipping through the channels and I saw a Diana Krall Live in Paris concert. I love love love Diana Krall; her voice is so beautiful and she is so musically talented. For the longest time, my phone ring tone has been "Let's Fall in Love". I knew I had to record it, and I just watched it and it was fabulous. Her Paris show was recorded in the Olympia Theatre in 2001. I so wish I could have seen it live; I guess the fact that I was only 11 at the time was a large reason why I wasn't in attendance. I had never heard her cover of Joni Mitchell's "A Case of You", but she played it during the Paris concert and I fell in love. I actually don't care for the Joni Mitchell version at all, but Krall's version has become one of my new favorite songs. The piano creates a beautiful melody with chords that make you actually feel the emotion in her music. Another reason I absolutely love this song is because the lyrics are so beautifully written. I love the line "I am as constant as the north star". What a fabulous song this would be for lyrical dance; I could definitely see this song being used on SYTYCD. So for all of you that missed the chance to catch Diana Krall Live in Paris, here is a clip of "A Case of You" from YouTube.

Have you heard of this song or have you ever attended one of her concerts? If you are a Krall fan, what is your favorite song? I also did a polyvore for this.. it's if I were able to attend the Diana Krall live in Paris concert! Ohh a girl can dream...

Have a fabulous day!

Diana also played ACOY at "An All-Star Tribute to Joni Mitchell" at the Kennedy Center in 2000. It was a great performance, and televised! Unfortunately, there doesn't seem to be a version of it posted on YouTube, or anywhere else for that matter.
