Of Tuesday Tunes – Say My Name (cover) by Ólafur Arnalds and Arnór Dan

My song of the week is Say My Name (cover) by Ólafur Arnalds and Arnór Dan.

Remember that catchy, upbeat, Destiny’s Child jam from back in the day? Remember how you and your friends bonded singing along and rocking out?

This amazing cover tosses aside the uptempo 90’s pop beat, focuses on the lyrics, and throws in a cello. The result? A version of the throwback classic that will tug at your heartstrings.

The first time I djed this version my friend Jackie came up to me and said, “Well, now I’m officially sad.” I love songs that make you sad though, it means that it reached into the depths of you and made you feel something. To me, that’s a beautiful thing.

Perhaps it’s the cello that pulls out the emotion, they have a tendency to do that.

Favorite lyric: “Say my name, say my name.”
