Ingrid Michaelson – “Die Alone”
One of my favorite performances at the Life is good festival was from Ingrid Michaelson. I’m a huge fan and it was my first time seeing her live. Not only did she sound great, but her stage banter was hilarious. I laughed a lot watching her, and at one point I also cried! She played my favorite song of hers, “The Chain”…a gorgeous, slower tune that builds up into a round. I had a perfect view of the volunteer who was signing the words to the song for the hearing impaired. What a beautiful sight! Hearing the song and seeing that visual interpretation along with it moved me to tears.
At one point in the set, Ingrid said she was going to do a happy song. She mentioned that it may not seem like a happy song based on the title, but it was. What she said made me pay close attention to the lyrics of this tune, “Die Alone”…
“I never thought I could love anyone
Now I know I can’t love anyone
youuuu make me think that maybe I won’t die alone.
Maybe I won’t die alone.”
