Multiple outfits – tatted-up nurse, socialite, 50’s waitress, rock star and, uh, peace officer and criminal – on top of a catchy tune.
It’s got Faith on the tops of giant flowers, swinging on peaches and riding a rocket. Oh, and Faith on trampolines! Includes the line – “It, ahhh, subliminal.”
Soft imagery against the power of her voice as she belts out a song about passionate, all-consuming love. The slide image gets you to dial up the the 4-minute clip. You’ll join almost 6 million others.
Hit the top of the Billboard charts with her first single as a hell-raiser. Interestingly, the song had been released twice before Hill got her hands on it and took it to the top. It gives you a lot of Faith, hair flying in the breeze (hers and the youthful representation) and a furry of feathers. We all start somewhere.
The lyrics of the song don’t create a “feel-good” run, but the imagery of the 1960s – the makeup, the outfits and THE HAIR – makes it a striking visual experience. And, Big & Rich have co-writing credit.
It’s Faith pondering the meaning of life in soft lighting.
Comes off of the debut album as the fresh-faced Faith took Nashville by storm. She’s hanging out with some guy and a piglet. Bacon makes an appearance on the list.
A duet with husband Tim McGraw as he enters the picture again. It’s one of those old school “slide over” songs. I mean, just look at the title. Barry White would be proud. Seeing McGraw without the hat, I’m pondering a viewing of “Friday Night Lights.” Stop calling him a “bastard.”
This one almost got bumped from the list for the campy “Let’s Go To Vegas,” but without a Griswold or Wayne Newton appearance, I just couldn’t do it. As such, the Janis Joplin cover comes into play. I want to know why they put her behind the fence. Is she supposed to be pacing like a caged … whatever.
The events of
This is a release from 2012 that takes you through the beauty, the heart of American life and backed by the Faith Hill smile. As we pause to reflect on the terrible events in Boston, I thought the words from the chorus resonated. .
“It bleeds. It scars.
But it shines when times get hard.
And you can’t break an American heart. “
You can follow Faith Hill on Twitter @faithhill.
Finally, I would be remiss if I failed to include Faith Hill’s rousing rendition of the National Anthem ahead of Super Bowl XXXIV in Atlanta.
I couldn’t conclude without it …
