Employment in Ewha's EPO has its perks . . . such as leisurely working the English Lounge, a required two hours of tutoring that includes elongated stretches of time with little to do other than listen to the music playing in English for all the lounge to hear.
One voice struck my fancy, so I asked who the femme fatale might be and was told . . . "Feist."
"Feist?" I echoed, puzzled. "As in 'feisty'?"But not just "Feist." Rather, "Leslie Feist" . . . as the two of us discovered.
"No," the lounge assistant replied, "Just 'Feist'."
"Where's Feist from?" I wondered.I'd only heard the voice and never seen the lady perform, so I was curious. As you see from the image above, she's stunning. But can she perform?
The assistant Googled . . . waited . . . "Canada," she finally informed me.
Yes. She. Can.
Here she is in video dancing in mesmerizing manner to "One Evening."
And also moving herself around in "1234" . . . though the video's quality is lacking. But great fun, especially the Sesame Street version.
Or if you're feeling down but not out and want some 80s-style California pop blues, check out the retro "Inside and Out."
But if you're feeling snazzy, here's a number jazzy, "When I Was A Young Girl," performed live in Paris.
Or the oddly named "Mushaboom"?
I reckon I'm just in a feisty mood, and if you are, too, You Tube has more, even one of her screwing up "One Evening" in live concert, but doing so with charm.
