Fantastic single from new york singer songwriter a girl called eddy. Its a brilliant love song. She has a great voice and plays the piano/ keyboards fantastically well. I was lucky enough to see her in cardiff on monday night supporting the amazingly talented Josh Ritter and got my copy of this single singed by her. Anyway I strongly reccomend buying this single and propel it up the charts. Look out for agirlcallededdy. She should make it huge!

This song has been available on A Girl Called Eddy's website for a while, and is absolutely tremendous...an aching love song, backed with a tremendous production and capped with an outstanding, bittersweet vocal from A Girl Called Eddy (Erin Moran). There is tremendous emotion in the song, yet it also evokes all those romantic places....London in the rain, Paris.....
Please buy this CD and support this artist....this deserves to be #1, not the tripe that currently passes as top 10 music

I can't praise Erin Moran (aka A Girl called Eddy) highly enough; her music is unbelievably beautiful. My only complaint would be that there isn't enough of it - one album to date and three CD singles/EPs. This release is from 2004; the title track is one of the most graceful and heart-rending songs of her eponymous debut album, which was produced by ex-Pulp guitarist Richard Hawley.

The single is graced with two B-sides: 'Love Actually' is a gorgeous banjo-accompanied torch song written by Moran and 'Baby Plays Around' is a cover of an 1989 Elvis Costello song (written in conjunction with Cait O'Riordan). Of all of the tracks, 'Love Actually' is the most outstanding and is perhaps the one on which she demonstrates her lyrical facility the fullest. 'Left to my own devices / I just keep on moving from crisis to crisis,' she sings, 'it's sad but true, 'til I met you / I've been drifting from problem to problem / open to find some kind of answers to solve them.' Her rendition of 'Baby Plays Around' is also pulled out of the depths of soul; her voice is rich with worldweariness and nostalgia when she sings 'It's not open to discussion anymore / She walks those shiny streets / I walk the worn-out floor / She's all I have worth living for.'

Carrying on from the atmosphere of her album, these tracks are likewise infused with a 'rainy and melancholy' mood and gorgeous retro feel. Her style of music might seem reminiscent of Karen Carpenter, Dusty Springfield and Eva Cassidy; she is certainly aware of their backwash, but A Girl Called Eddy is nevertheless swimming her own course.

A huge talent!

I bought the album and considered buying the single simply to get more of "Eddy". OK, so I duplicate the title track, but buying this is worth it for the two other tracks - "Love Actually" and "Baby Plays Around". The first is a relaxing little song and shows off Eddy's singing well, but the second is a tremendous song and given a peach of a rendition by "Eddy", accompanied just by guitar and in a style of the 40's or 50's.
So if you're not sure about buying the album, start with this and then I am certain you WILL be rushing out for the album - she's an enormous talent.

I had a hard time tracking this down, but after hearing "Love Actually" (a non-album b-side) on her MySpace page, I had to get this. "Baby Plays Around" is also a nice cover. I'd reccomend this one if you can ever find it.
