    Kathleen Edwards: Fe-ENFj (Normalizing subtype) [ENFj-ISFj]







    "I fell for you/It's sad but true/It just won't let up/You're such a tease/When I touch the keys/I can't give you up/And all these roads should lead me home/Somehow I always get lost/Don't touch my face in a public place/You never know when to stop/Still I can't give you up/No, I can't give you up//When I get old, will my heart explode from years of feeling too much?/And when I die, they'll say I never gave you up/Well it just won't let up/And I can't give you up"





    My ex-boyfriend thought she VI'd SLE. I still want her to be Beta NF, though.
    Here's Robert Christgau's take on her [since I've seen her in concert three times, obviously our opinions regarding her sharply diverge for the most part]:

    'KATHLEEN EDWARDS
    Asking for Flowers
    ZoŽ/Rounder

    Folk-circuit fave draws out her songs until they have stretch marks

    Kathleen Edwards is an Ottawa singer-songwriter with a tough-minded lyrical flair, a reliable melodic knack and a smoky folkie voice alluring enough to take her just so far and no further. The title chorus on her third and best album shows off all three gifts: "Asking for flowers/Is like asking you to be nice/Don't tell me you're too tired/For 10 years I been working nights." Backed by Sheryl Crow guitarist Greg Leisz and Tom Petty keyboardist Benmont Tench, it's killer, but built of such familiar musical materials that when it comes around the third time, it's plumb tuckered out. The track is one of three standouts that run over five minutes, and all three are too long. Edwards's niche market will never force her to break this habit. Too bad the rest of the world won't ever hear "The Cheapest Key," the strongest (and fastest) thing here, at a totally satisfying 2:42.

    "You know what I wish?/It was just you and me/Sitting in this corner bar/You could tell me how you are/But I'm not going to lie/Or anything/You don't even have to speak/If you keep looking at me//And I could go all night/But they're turning up the lights/It would be so easy/Do or say anything/And I'm not going to lie/I'm not looking for love/I won't let you in my heart/But you were always on my mind"

    Robert Christgau:

    'Failer [ZoŽ, 2003]
    Canadian folkie walks on the wild side, really ("Westby," "One More Song the Radio Won't Like") *'

    'Asking for Flowers [ZoŽ, 2008]
    I know she worked on these songs for three years, but writing slow doesn't mean you have to sing that way ("The Cheapest Key," "Asking for Flowers"). **'
