One thought on each song off of Vanessa Carlton's "Best Of" Album
- •A Thousand Milesthe second she wrote this song she knew: "if I get someone in the business to hear it, I will make a million dollars off this song. At least."
- •Heroes & Thievesthat she thought this would be as big a song as A Thousand Miles... :(
- •White Housesthat this is her favorite of her hit songs
- •Ordinary Daythat this is her least favorite of her hit songs.
- •Who's To Saythat the record company did not want this song on the record, since no track this deep belongs on a Hits CD, but she said "either this song is on the record or there is no record," in a failing effort to legitimize the Harmonium album.
- •Homethat when she's alone and decides to play one of her songs, this is the one she chooses. Also, can we all agree that her go-to alone-time song from another artist is Landslide? Side note: when I saw her in college and she did this song ugh so good best song of the whole show.
- •Pretty Babythat screenwriter/director Richard Curtis would really like this song.
- •Hands On Methat the chorus of this song is very similar to the chorus in ABBA's "S.O.S."
- •Private Radiothat this song either kills or falls flat at her shows. She never knows which it will be, but the reaction is always extreme in one direction.
- •Twilightthat this song makes no sense to me, or anyone, but makes complete sense to her. Only her.
- •San Franciscothat there are too many songs written about San Francisco
