Fever (2022) – Christina Perri

When I first heard the Zen like xylophone in the introduction, I didn’t know what to think apart from that it was cool. Then Perri unleashes into what she does best and finds an addictive melodic pattern and her voice is second to none. As the song progresses, the percussion and drum rhythm advances to something, ‘higher, higher‘ and its pretty f/&king amazing.

What I like about her music (above all) is just when I think I have worked it out, I actually haven’t. It gets better each listen, and the ear adapts. The polyphonic finale is one for the ages.

[Verse 1]
I dream about you, but I’ve never even seen your face
I’m thinkin’ constantly about the way I feel to have you near
I wanna hold you in the darkness, never let you slip away
I wanna feel the beating rhythm of your heart inside of me

You’re like a fever in my body and my mind
And I’ll burn until I have you by my side
No one knows and nobody can see
You’re like a fever in me
Burning, burning, burning in me

[Verse 2]
In this delirium, I swear I hear you whisperin’ to me
It’s like you’re sending me a secret message from another time
That you would wait however long it’s gonna take me to decide
But I can’t sleep and I can’t breathe until I meet you in real life

To quote Tim H about his experience with the music of Perri in response to his seeing this video:

I wish that I had found your music sooner! I’m a metal music guitarist so I don’t really explore much else…but I can’t stop listening to your music! Omg- it grips me deep into my soul and it’s a presence I never want to let go! Your music is angelic and the most moving I’ve ever heard!

  1. I’ve never explored very much of Perri’s music, but you’ve helped broaden my knowledge of her, and what a great songwriter and vocalist she is.
