Skinny Love

by

Birdy



Songfacts®:  You can leave comments about the song at the bottom of the page.

Birdy is British singer-songwriter Jasmine Van den Bogaerde, who was fourteen when she recorded this song. After she won the under 18s category of the UK talent contest UK Idol at the age of 12, Jasmine was quickly offered a publishing contract by Good Soldier Songs Ltd, run by Christian Tattersfield, chairman of Warner Bros. Music UK. This is her debut single, a cover version of a track first recorded by American folk band Bon Iver and included on their 2008 album For Emma, Forever Ago.
A piece of trivia for you movie buffs - Birdy's great uncle was the actor Sir Dirk Bogarde.
The song returned to the UK singles chart in January 2012 after soundtracking Hollyoaks actress Jorgie Porter on ITV1's Dancing on Ice.

I do prefer her breath-taking version to the original. Her vocal strength is amazing! I love it! :3

Birdy's version of Skinny Love is just phenomenal and (dare I say it), I prefer it to the original. I first heard it on The Vampire Diaries. I've since become a big fan of her music.

Fantastic to see Birdy doing so well after performing at the O2 and winning her category in the biggest music competition in the UK for singers!

When he was asked to write a song for the Singles soundtrack, Mark thought the Seattle grunge scene was already overblown, so that's what he wrote about.
