Secret Heart by Feist (Ron Sexsmith Cover)

Leslie Feist

I heard Feist’s cover of Ron Sexsmith’s Secret Heart while listening to The Current the other night (of course) and it was love at first listen. So much credit goes to Sexsmith for the composition of this tune, but Feist’s smooth, soft, melodic voice brings out aspects of the song that make it that much better. The little runs Feist does so well give the song a bluesy feel, but overall it feels like “easy listening” or “light rock”.

I could’ve sworn the version I heard the other night was more piano-driven and the stops were more emphasized than the recording below, but I could’ve imagined that.
