#TuesdayTune - Eliza Doolittle!

Hello friends! Welcome to Natasha in Oz and welcome to this week's #TuesdayTune!

Have you heard Eliza Doolittle?
No, not that one....

This one!


Eliza Doolittle, is a British singer–songwriter from Camden, London. 

She spent her blossoming years focusing on Broadway, starring in RSC adaptations of Les Miserables and The Secret Garden. Her debut, self-titled album, Eliza Doolittle was released on 12 July 2010. On debut it was Number 3 in the UK charts. Since the album's release, Doolitte has had another two of her records hit the top 25 charts, including her single "Skinny Genes". Doolittle's second single, "Pack Up", debuted at number 12 on the Official UK Singles Chart on the 11th July 2010, debuted in the Top 20 for the Single Top 100 and Irish Singles Charts, and in the Top 5 in the UK Singles Chart.

With influences ranging from Stevie Wonder to Queen, Jill Scott to Quincy Jones, and many other musical acts both new and old; Eliza combines a variety of sounds and styles to make a unique, quirky sound that would put a smile even on the grumpiest of faces.

I think once you have heard this catchy tune and listened to the brilliant lyrics you will see why it achieved such enomorus success so very quickly.

I get tired
And upset
And i’m trying to care a little less
When I google I only get depressed
I wast taught to dodge those issues I was told
Don’t worry
There’s no doubt
There’s always something to cry about
When you’re stuck in an angry crowd
They don’t think what they say before they open their mouths

[chorus]
Pack up your troubles in your old kit bag
And bury them beneath the sea
I don’t care what the people may say
What the people may say about me
Pack up your troubles get your old grin back
Don’t worry ’bout the cavalry
I don’t care what the whisperers say
Cos’ they whisper too loud for me.

I hope you enjoy listening to my latest favourite song, Pack Up.

  2. I really liked the song. Odd, but the video you used had a message that said it was unavailable in my country. Huh? Anyway, I found her on You Tube though and listened to a few of her songs. I like her style.

  15. Thanks for linking up Elvis again! Although it has not brought much traffic or comments, I have really loved this week's Basset Bonanza. If I ever win the lottery, my dream is to create a basset hound sanctuary, hee! Baxter says thank you for reading. Actually, he is napping right now but I know he is appreciative. :D

  17. (In response) What?? You don't have Thanksgiving in Australia, actually, I think I knew that. I will have to send you a virtual invitation to ours here in America. Turkey, pumpkin pie, stuffing, sweet potatoes, and any other side dish you can dream of. Can you smell it yet? :) Thanks so much for your sweet comment, and for adding the button. I am truly blessed to have you as a blogging friend!

  19. Was a little disappointed that the post wasn't about the other Elisa. But not for long. I love the beat and happy attitude of this song.Wanted to dance to it! She and her back up singer have great voices.

  21. Hi Natasha, Wow..your Sunday Song party is popular! It's grown since I last linked up. :o)

    I knew you would love my video. It's of my granddaughter dancing, to my husband's cello teacher performing her latest country song at an old restaurant out here in the country. Heather is a talented country singer, and song writer who performs at local restaurants and bars. But being a music major she also teaches violin and cello at a local music center. Tim, my hubby, takes lessons from her.

    PS. I love Eliza Doolittle..from My Fair Lady..but I can't get the video to play to hear the 'other' Eliza. I look forward to visiting the other links at your party.

    Have a great week,
    Donna @ Comin' Home
