Saturday’s Musical Memory Box solution: Building A Mystery, Sarah McLachlan, Surfacing, 1997. Stephane Dubord making it tough to beat him once again as he snatches the bonus points from the Lilith Fair demography.
I’m surprised I didn’t get a stronger response on this one. Other than Celine Dion or Shania Twain, it’s hard to think of a bigger Canadian international music star than Sarah Mac. She was absolutely huge during mid-90′s, becoming an icon for the fairer sex.
She won a bunch of Junos, but more importantly for Canadians who don’t recognize their artists until other countries do, she won a couple of Grammies.
Here are your lyrics for today:
“I laid your arms out long untwisted there
And shaped what I could find
Unmade the most of it and then left the rest
The parts unrecognized
My reconstruction was the only way
For one last look at you
I lost the sense of absolution
That we never knew”
