Shining In My Hair

Words and Music by Deirdre Leah Faegre

Lyrics

I hate horrible, I love beautiful

And I will let you know, beauty covers from head to toe

Itís shining everywhere you may go

 

Shining in my hair, shining everywhere

Shining in the sky, shining at the birds that fly

Shining from the sun, shining to everyone

But they donít notice that itís shining in my hair, shining everywhere

Shining in the sky, itís shining oh so high

Shining from the sun, itís shining to everyone

 

Peaking autumn colors and cold white winters into

Blooming spring flowers with rain falling down, now everything has changed

Summer has come, the seasons have gone around

 

Shining in my hair, shining everywhere

Shining in the sky, shining at the birds that fly

Shining from the sun, shining to everyone

But they donít notice that itís shining in my hair, shining everywhere

Shining in the sky, shining oh so high

Shining from the sun, itís shining to everyone

 

Shining in my hair, shining everywhere

Shining oh so high, shining oh so high

Shining, shining to everyone

Story Behind the Music: One day early in the month of September, 2005, I was doing cartwheels and handstands as usual when I started thinking about how great my life had been.  And as I often would, started singing a song to go with what I was feeling and thinking about when I became aware of the song I was creating almost without realizing it.

I was looking up at the sky and thought of lyrics such as 'birds that fly' and 'high in the sky.'  But the most important line I came up with was what became the title, 'Shining In My Hair;' which I meant to suggest that I was different from others; something everyone noticed but can't put their finger on.

While walking back to class with the sun shining on me, I realized that I might forget this by the time I got home so I used 'dots' that go up and down to help me remember. A trained musician would not be able to do this--but I could.

Innocent and child-like, who would know that nine months later it would be a record...I did!

Professional Reviews

"Good music in verses [and] choruses...vocals are soft and pretty...Good sectional contrast...Good use of imagery...Communicates emotion to listener...Excellent use of dynamics."

---Taxi, July 20, 2006

"Hi, Deirdre; [You are] A sweet singer, I definitely feel your artistry here shows the potential to be worth considering forwarding...I like the overall feeling here, kind of moody & bittersweet, although there's also somewhat of a 'new age' vibe to me...I also like the theme..."

---Taxi, May 8, 2007

"Thank you for letting me hear your work. You have a wonderful voice, reminiscent of Six Pence None The Richer, expressive.  You have strong melodic instincts and are definitely on the right path there.  Good melodic hooks...The lyrics paint a pretty picture...You have some really artistic and creative ideas..."

---Taxi, June 25, 2007

"A beautiful, evocative lyric! This is a strong album cut for you as an artist, Deirdre. Your structure is solid. Melodically this is a timeless pop song...Just a beautiful song!"

---Taxi, September, 2007

"This is a beautiful song with a strong melodic hook and a sweet innocence about it. Wonderful vocal and musical performances..."

---Taxi, April 21, 2008

"Thank you for the opportunity to listen to your idea, and to review it for this Taxi Listing. I really like the mood that you set up and create in this idea...it's a bit ethereal and "dream-like"... but it certainly does work. Vocal performance is engaging, and a heartfelt passion comes straight across to this listener. The opening line in V1 may be a bit obvious to some, but I really liked it.  Structure works nicely, and the choruses are set up and released well."
