meditate in my direction, feel yr way

growing up, every girl i knew was obsessed with the soundtrack to grease but it was impossible for me to ever really understand what the fascination was. then i overheard sia and beck covering *the one that i want* and was given an entirely different perspective.

back in 2003, after watching zero 7 play, beck immediately telephoned their management, asking if sia may choose a song and perform live with him.

sia’s recollection: “i suggested it as a joke; but we changed the major to a minor, made it really slow and turned it into a bit of a country stalker anthem.”

it was their first time meeting and together their voices blended beautifully falling in line with one another. after listening, you too, may never look at this song the same way again.

listen to: sia and beck ~ you’re the one that i want

    I love you for sharing all that you do and showing people how much new and fantastically beautiful music is out here.

    This cover of One That I Want has given me goose bumps and this is not the first time I’ve been moved to tears from your shared music.

    I thank you from the bottom of my musical heart.

    just wanted to thank you. I read your entry and thought “There’s no way that could ever work” but downloaded it out of curiosity. But OH MY GOD. I’ve listened to it about 14 times already today, and there’s still time for more. Thank you. xx
