Song Spotlight: Kati O'Toole

I find music can both bring me down and pull me back up again, so sometimes its good to have a peppy little song on your iPod that can put a smile on your face and make you tap your toe. One such song on my iPod is "Move" by an artist named Kati O'toole. I've seen Kati play twice, both times as a part of the opening act for Missy Higgins back in March. She was touring with Robert Francis, and in addition to playing the keyboard for him, she sang along with him on the song "One by One."

Those two dates with Missy lead me to check out Robert's stuff, and that lead me in turn to find Kati's site and listen to her solo work. Her songs are great, and she is a very tallented singer, songwriter and producer. On "Move" her pretty voice is happy, reassuring and soothing and the glockenspiel is sure to put a smile on your face. Check out her MySpace site to hear the song, or check out her new stuff at SnowGhost Music. Here's the lyrics to "Move" enjoy:

It’s really not bad, being out on your own
Sure I feel alone sometimes.
When the day is long and you reach for night
Sometimes dreaming makes it all seem fine.
When you’re wishing you were somewhere maybe more familiar
Think of all you’ve got to be.
When you’re wishing you were holding someone you’ve been missing
Think of all you’ve got to see.

It’s really not bad, walking down the street, with no company in the city.
When the day is long, sing out simple song and soon you’ll feel like you might belong
When you’re wishing you were somewhere maybe more familiar
Think of all you’ve got to be.
When you’re wishing you were holding someone you’ve been missing
Think of all you’ve got to see.

You’ll be fine if you keep on, keep on, moving
You’ll be fine if you keep on, keep on, moving.

When you’re wishing you were somewhere maybe more familiar
Think of all you’ve got to be.
When you’re wishing you were holding someone you’ve been missing
Think of all you’ve got to see.
You’ll be fine if you keep on, keep on, moving
You’ll be fine if you keep on, keep on, moving.
