84. Norah Jones—FEELS LIKE HOME

Norah Jones burst on the scene in a hurry. Her first two records, “Come Away With Me” (2002) and “Feels Like Home” (2004) established her as a star with a rare spontaneous combination of critical affirmation and commercial success. Of the two, “Feels Like Home” is my slight favorite. Along with several great originals (such as “Sunrise” and “Carnival Town”) and an interesting version of a Duke Ellington tune with lyrics by Jones (“Don’t Miss You at All”), she nails a double Wavelength could never resist, killer versions of Townes Van Zandt’s “Be Here to Love Me” and Tom Waits’s “The Long Way Home.” MI0002426801
