Every so often a song comes along which has a mass of meanings in it. It also tends to be a totally beautiful song and – I make no apologies for sounding a bit silly when I say this – one that I keep listening to because it brings out so many different emotions in me. I think I have listened to Emeli Sandé’s new single ‘Breathing Underwater’ at least twice a day, every day this week.
I love a song that builds, and this does this beautifully with it’s gospel undertones followed by gospel solo at the end. It has been described as a ‘majestic anthem’ and I wholeheartedly agree. Emeli has always been on my radar since the beginning of my relationship with Ross. I always said that her song ‘Next to Me’ was written for someone like him – and that still holds true to this day.
If you are looking for an emotional-fuelled song which will elevate you this weekend, then you can do no wrong with this.
