Stardust

Sweet Megg
Duration: 6:50

Sweet Megg and her talented band of players perform the Hoagy Carmichael classic live at Nelson Drum Shop in Nashville, TN. Megg says about the song, “Stardust has always been one of my favorite songs. The melody, chord progression, and lyrics are in ultimate harmony with each other making the emotional content remarkably vivid. It is sad but also it is melancholy wrapped up in such beauty that it can feel both good and bad at the same time. There is so much in this song. When I’m feeling joyous and in love, I feel inspired to sing it, or when I’m in the depths of depression I want to sing it. It induces feelings and that is why I enjoy it. It makes me feel whatever I’m feeling stronger.” This video was a performance of what we had just finished in the studio. We had spent the past two days recording and had a little send off party at Nelson Drum Shop. That is what this video is about.”
