10. Skinny Love by Birdy
The song is known to be the single from Bon Iver’s début album called For Emma, Forever Ago from 2007. Although releasing a great hit, they are not the only one to present it.
Birdy, a musician from England, found her own remarkable way of expressing the that’s-the-way-it-is and the tone of sadness felt in the song. Whether it be the gentle piano chords or her pleading voice, there is something mysterious about this version.
…And I told you to be patient
And I told you to be fine
And I told you to be balanced
And I told you to be kind
And in the morning, I’ll be with you
But it will be a different kind
‘Cause I’ll be holding all the tickets
And you’ll be owning all the fines…(Skinny Love)
