Hide and Seek
Imogen Heap. I just heard a couple of songs by her. She seems pretty pleasing. I also found out that Jason DeRulo sampled her song “Hide and Seek” for his song “Whatcha Say.” His song hits hard and his chorus, from Heap, is cute. I am not a fan of the lyrics. I won’t belabor you an explanation. But what’s worse is that the lyrics from the chorus just do not seem to fit into the rest of the verses. It just doens’t make sense.
That said it’s a such a catchy song! I really like listening to it, but am comically conflicted for singing a song that has lyrics I don’t like. Of course, I think the chorus is the best part and the biggest reason why I like it, and given it was sampled from a non-hip-hop song, that makes sense (for me). But until tonight I didn’t know it was sampled; so I was excited to hear the real version. I also noticed that DeRulo modulate Heap’s version to a higher key, which is why I origianlly though it wasn’t Heap singing. It is her, just modulated. Anyway… I was just writing to say that I noticed the modulation.
