Blue Blue Heart

Album: Birds (2005)
Play Video


  • It is difficult to believe this is an original song but amazingly, no one appears to have written one about a girl with a blue blue heart before. If the rhythm sounds familiar too, especially to Kinks fans, this is not deja vu but yet another tribute to the extraordinary talent that is Briolette Kah Bic Runga, and her ability to adapt, change and mold that talent as her artform develops.

    If this track is in any way enigmatic, there is no mystery about the identity of the girl with the blue blue heart, especially when crowds come from miles around to see her play.
  • The studio version is heavily keyboard oriented, but live, Bic plays electric guitar on it, and although the keyboard is still there, this is a track that definitely renders best live, or perhaps that should be even better live. >>
