I was in middle school when Jewel‘s Pieces of You album came out and introduced my friends and I to feelings and emotions (in that order).
“You Were Meant For Me” was always playing in my head as I crushed on this one guy in science class. “Foolish Games” was my theme song after three-way-calling the same boy and hearing him say he wasn’t that into me.
The next day at school I literally wanted to sing You’re always brilliant in the morning / Smoking your cigarettes and talking over coffee / Your philosophies on art, Baroque moved you / You loved Mozart and you’d speak of your loved ones, but I was in middle school.
I was hoping that same boy would be at my 10-year high school reunion, so I could perform an interpretive dance to “Who Will Save Your Soul,” but I guess he got married or something.
The point is, I have always thought of Jewel as this serious, emotional, brilliant singer. Always. So, when I saw her on “Jimmy Kimmel Live” performing with Jewel and the Gang singing a medley of hits like “Hollywood Swingin'” “Ladies Night” and “Celebration” I was introduced to a whole new Jewel and I love her even more now.
If this new endeavor works out for Jewel and the Gang they would be the best wedding band in the country.
