Ten-Jewel (Valory)

She always sounds kinda little- girly, but being aware she’s full grown makes it a lot easier for me to enjoy the voice, knowing I’m not listening to some child. When I first heard this on her album (which is quite good, by the way), my first thought was: never underestimate a ‘counting’ song. That goes back a long ways. Billy Haley/Rock Around the Clock. Chuck Berry/Reelin’ & Rockin’. Len Barry/1-2-3. The Jacksons/A-B-C. Well, that’s not actually counting, but same kinda’ thing. Ok, so those are all forty to fifty years old, but people’s minds still work the same way nows as they did back then. Counting songs and rhymes invite participation. But it’s not easy to write a good song with the counting thing as the foundation. Jewel’s pulled it off here.
