My Ungrateful Heart

Album: The Pink & The Lily (2008)
  • This was written by Sandi Thom together with her boyfriend and keyboardist Jake Field.
  • Sandi Thom recorded this in just one take in the basement of her Tooting, London, apartment. She explained on her record label's website: "I was really hung over that day, but it was alright because I was in my own house. So I just sat on a chair, falling asleep and just sang it. For me it was one of the best things I'd ever done, even if it was a bit husky or whatever, just because I was so relaxed."
