Today’s song is enchanting us through a beautiful voice and presence.
Vanessa Carlton is an American singer and songwriter, born in Milford, Pennsylvania in August 1980.
The artist plays vocals, piano, organ, and tambourine, and she started her musical career in 2001.
Her debut single was A Thousand Miles, a song that reached the top five on the Billboard Hot 100 and since then, she gave us a lot more.
Ordinary Day is one of her most beautiful songs, written by Vanessa Carlton and produced by Ron Fair.
The song was released in April 2002 as part of her album named Be Not Nobody.
The free Ordinary Day piano sheet music peaked at number 30 on the US Billboard Hot 100 in 2002.
It has a length of 3:58 minutes in its original version and was released as a pop song, under the A&M label.
What is interesting about Ordinary Day is that is the first song that Vanessa has ever written in only one sitting.
Her live interpretation is amazing.
Vanessa uses some of the original lyrics that she wrote before the song was taken by Ron Fair.
She performs the live version with the original lyrics and not with the ones recorded for the album version when the chorus is
Don't you see your dreams lie right in the palm of your hand?
while in the live version the chorus is
If we walk now, we will divide and conquer this land
The free Ordinary Day piano sheets has also a music video, which is a simple one.
The video is directed by Marc Klasfeld and features Vanessa Carlton writing the song’s title in a diary and playing the piano, and also a boy who appears behind her.
We absolutely love this beautiful song, and that is the reason why we put at your disposal all the materials you need in order to play it on your piano.
