KT Tunstall: Suddenly I See

KT Tunstall got the inspiration for her song “Suddenly I See” after staring at the black and white photo of Patti Smith on the cover of her debut LP “Horses.” According to Tunstall, the song is about “female power.”

Released in 2005, the song was Tunstall’s highest charting song in the UK peaking at #12. In the US, it’s feature as the opening song in the movie “The Devil Wears Prada” gave a jump start to the song and it peaked at #21.

This live recording comes from the TV show “Later with Jools Holland.” You may wonder what qualifies it for Tasty Licks Tuesday; however, the percussion at the end makes the grade. How can you not like a song that utilizes a trash can lid as a percussive instrument.
