The Me Shell

by ME:SHE

/
  • Compact Disc (CD) + Digital Album

    "Michelle Dumond (Meshe) is a free-spirited gypsy musician with the soul of a jazz singer and the playfulness of a burlesque performer. Bob Dylan would love her. Rufus Wainwright would drag her onstage with him. Leonard Cohen and Shakira would team up to adopt her. She has the musical skills to establish credibility with a more artsy crowd and the earthiness and humor to make her more accessible to people like me who just love music.

    She can convey all kinds of moods with that husky, alluring, commanding voice. She can sing the fun “Bathtub Rag” about soaking in the tub and suddenly fog up the bathroom mirror by crooning invitingly, “So take off your clothes and wet your toes.” She can handle a serious issue with a whimsical approach (the opener “Humanity”).

    She can also dim the lights, as she does in the middle of this CD, and turn into a classically-inspired dark gothic composer. “Sandra” and “Au Revoir” are orchestral tapestries of cello, piano, violin, and sweeping melodic drama. I could almost touch the sound – it’s burgundy velvet. After it flowed over me and left me very still, Dumond wisely ended on an up note with “Sick on Christmas,” a wry yet jingling tune. She can do anything.

    She can sing anything, play anything, and seduce anyone.

    Go ahead and give in."

Humanity 04:23
Some of us love beer some of us love to fight We’d all love sex (singing) if we just did it right Some of us love dancing Some of us play guitar Some of us think love lives on a lonely distant star Some of work hard and some don’t work at all Some call them lucky and some would like to see them fall O What is real o what is true Can we please all agree on what to do Cos we all need air and we all need light We all need laughter to feel alright We all want love and we all need sleep We all have wisdom coming down real deep Now some of us drive fast Some don’t drive at all Some think we’ll drive into a big fat wall With all this bombing as the death tolls rise Don’t forget about pollution look to the skeyes Some of us are angry some of us don’t really care Some of us are wondering if God is really even here O What is real what is best Let’s make things right Let’s pass this test Cos we all need light and we all need air We’ve all shed at least one tiny little tear All we need is light all we need is air All we need is water to exist down here So Courage up heart’s on Your sleeves Cos it’s gonna take guts before the Darkness leaves…

Bathtub Rag 03:40
Bathtub Rag By: Roch Gallo and Michelle Dumond A little water and some soap, A little time to rest I hope To wash the worries of the day, all away Bathtub time is fun, to sit and watch the water run And when you’re through, you feel brand new! Ooooh, soaking here is twice as nice when you’re near So, take off your clothes and oooh! Wet your toes Wet your toes Take off your clothes and wet your toes In the bathtub you will find, you can rest and just unwind Let the busy brain, float down the drain Some bubbles and a duck, and with a little cosmic luck You’ll have a lover in the tub, to scrub a dub! Floating away, at the end of the day, is my way to pray So, I take off my clothes and oooh! I wet my toes I wet my toes! I take off my clothes and I wet my toes!

At times I look into your lonely eyes and see the dreams that passed you by You feel that it's the end but you'll find your love again You never really wanted much at all just someone who could ease your fall You'll find it's not the end but you'll find your love again Day after day, it's around you so open your eyes to something new we do what we can do And when you thought things were over and done you'll find that they've just begun so reach out and smile my friend you'll find it never ends and you'll find your love again!

Remember September? By: Michelle Dumond Remember love, September love, it was lovelier than spring Because all that spring can bring, Never ever brought me you. The sweetest things the springbird sings Were written by the fall, For in the cold and dark the songs were waiting. Don’t we call it fall for a reason? We fall in love to keep us warm when it’s freezing As the winter snow blankets all We know That we fell In the fall In the thralls Of love Remember love, September love, as the courting of two hearts The meeting of two parts So tinglingly lingeringly lovely dear meyou.

Sandra 02:53
Sandra, keeper of life mysteries what do you hear on the breeze? wordless unspoken things, secrets that only you know Sandra, what do you whisper this time? Do your lips move with reason or rhyme? Sandra, what's in that upside down smile? Stay, a while...with your your eyes full of spring and a heart full of sadness.

Show Me 01:30
Show me that I'm creation that I'm just vibration that I'm nothing more Show me that I'm creativity until i feel it coming out of every poor soul finds an answer in his own day every soul finds an answer in her own way I've been running around looking out for, out for myself but I don't ever find it, what is it? I analyze and i fantasize, but I know this body is a big disguise (big as the skies) and it's going to take more than these human eyes to see, to see through to truth Freedom to and freedom from my freedom calls me like a lonely drum but like a 12 year old potted houseplant, I cling to the dirt and I carry hurt I analyze and i fantasize, but I know this body is a big disguise (big as the skies) and it's going to take more than these human eyes to see, to see through to truth

Au Revoir 03:51
One of us is sleeping and one of us is dead Which one has it better, and which is which all said They mystery's embraced you, her kisses are they sweet? A new face you'll be wearing, when next we chance to meet....to meet Au Revoir mon amour, au revoir, au revoir Is it water we become, the sand beneath these feet Is Hercules inside me, is it me i'm trying to meet... Au Revoir mon amour, au revoir, au revoir Love's every note in the scale Love's every name is a veil Au Revoir mon amour, au revoir, au revoir

Skeye 03:19
SKEYE- By Roch Gallo At the other end of the skeye, I’ll be there When there’s nothing left to try, i’ll be there When all the dreams of yesterday slowly start to fade away and the fire starts to burn, every lesson that you’ve learned, I’ll be there, you know I’ll be there At the other end of the skeye things will change When you start to ask yourself why, things will change All the sadness that you had all the people good and bad, all the places in your life, all the happiness and strife, all will go, but you know, i’ll be there. INSTRUMENTAL ROUND At the other end of the skeye, I’ll be there When there’s nothing left to try, I’ll be there When you’ve said your last goodbye and spirit starts to rise to another time and place, with a smile upon my face, I’ll be there, you know, I’ll be there.

I'm sick, on Christmas- I'm miserable and sad but I'm counting my blessing and wearing my best things and laughing almost all the time Because Aunt Dorothy thinks it's psychosomatic my sisters say to eat some garlic everyone has, a piece of advice for me, you see... I'm sick, on Christmas, I'm miserable and mad while I'm drinking ginger tea, and thinking me me me i'm coughing all the time while mom is cooking up a wonder the table's set with treats to plunder but nobody wants to have a seat next to me you see I'm sick on Christmas, but i'm trying to be glad so while I'm under the tree, where the presents happen to be I'm blowing my nose in time, because it's Christmas, oh oh oh, Christmas time, and i'm with you-ooh, ooh, oooh. i'm with you, achew. bless you.

She can sing anything, play anything, and seduce anyone.

Go ahead and give in.
