Tift Merritt’s “Broken”

Posted: April 2, 2008 in Music

My friend, Candice, led me to this song, which I really like.

I went to Tift’s MySpace music page, and I really liked her self-description of her sound: “…maybe a little like if Creedence Clearwater Revival had a girl singer who loved Dusty Springfield and Bruce Springsteen and old french movies and played a real warm summer night right after a thunderstorm…but really…I’m pretty sure I just sound like me.”
