  • I know from the first chord that this song is going to be a sad ballad
  • It's definitely broadway-ish but I can definitely hear this one in radios if they will eventually see the beauty in this

      Sara Bareilles is such a lovely lady, and her voice is angelic. There’s something in her cold voice that is so soothing and ethereal. Like every time I listen to her voice, I almost always get shrills and goosebumps because it’s just so beautiful.

      In case you don’t know her, YouTube or Spotify is a great tool in discovering her music. If you do know her, then you know what I am talking about.

      “She Used to Be Mine” - the song I’ll be reviewing today is


      the lead single for her new album: “What’s Inside: Songs from Waitress” which is a compilation of the songs she wrote for the musical “Waitress” and of course, new songs she recorded over the years.

      The song starts with a beautifully played piano. I know from the first chord that this song is going to be a sad ballad. She is known to have a collection of sad but great ballads that a lot of people covered in singing shows like “Gravity”, “Breath Again”, “Hold My Heart” and “Chasing the Sun”.

      And then of course when she started singing, I just closed my eyes and listen to the voice of an angel. It’s been almost 2 years since she released new music and this one is a refreshment. I missed her voice, there’s no denying about that. The way she sings and tells a story at the same time is so dramatic, in a good way of course that I started believing in the words that she said.

      The song’s story revolves ...


      • Sara Bareilles - She Used to Be Mine (Song )
      around a girl that works in a bakery, she’s pregnant but her lover left her. She becomes miserable but one day she decided to get back up for the sake of herself and for the “life that’s inside her” and “bring back the fire in her eyes”. It’s like a self-empowerment anthem, but for a twist, she basically started down and try to get back up!

      The production of this song is really simple and straightforward. It’s raw and organic. It’s one of those songs today

      that could have been made in the 70’s or 80’s because all the instruments used in this song are just piano, drums and simple strings. It’s definitely broadway-ish but I can definitely hear this one in radios if they will eventually see the beauty in this. This is no “Someone Like You” but it does have its magic and vulnerability.

      Sara once again captured the magic and beauty of a song. Her voice is so perfect and unique, and she eventually shines in the rawness of this song!
