Song for the Day: Corinne Bailey Rae - "I'd Like To"

Before the Grammy Awards were drooling with typical Brit fetishism over Amy Winehouse and Adele, the charming singer/songwriter Corinne Bailey Rae found herself in the running for top prizes two years in a row for tracks from her self-titled debut album. "Put Your Records On" and "Like a Star," the two tracks that brought Rae her Grammy noms (but sadly no wins) in 2007 and 2008, respectively, are certainly lovely, but it's this track she contributed to the soundtrack of He's Just Not That Into You that I find I enjoy the most.

I'd Like To, Pt. 2Trivia: Although she garnered a sizeable fan base after the success of her debut album, Rae went on a nearly two-year hiatus from performing or recording in 2008 after her husband, musician Jason Rae, was found dead from a drug overdose. After some uncertainty as to whether she would return to music at all, Rae's sophomore album, The Sea, is set to be released in February 2010.
