30 Day Song Challenge #17

Day 17: a song you’d sing a duet with someone on karaoke.

Brooke Fraser & William Fitzsimmons — You Can Close Your Eyes.

James Taylor’s “You Can Close Your Eyes” is a drop-dead gorgeous little lullaby. (He’s quite good at that. See also “Sweet Baby James” and “Fire and Rain”.) I haven’t got a clue what the words are about, but I love it to pieces nonetheless. It wasn’t written as a duet, but he has performed it as such with Joni Mitchell and Carole King, among others. I went with this cover version here because I like how their voices sound together.

As for karaoke: I’d love to do it sometimes, as I love to sing along with stuff. I can’t sing (or so The Missus keeps telling me), but I don’t really care. And I think I should be just about able to pull this off.
