Default What made you love Jewel?

Its very weird... very very weird.

I really never heard any of Jewels music. I did hear Hands at the time. I
always said my cat, Puddin's favorite singer was Jewel, and she loved the song hands. As a joke, I checked a CD out from the Library so Pud could hear Hands, not knowing I was checking out This Way.

I played it for her and I was like "Hey! This is great!". This was before I even liked music, so my cat made me love music xD

How did you get into liking Jewel?

The song "You Were Meant For Me".........dreams last so long, even after you're gone... I liked that line.

I loved her entire first album, it was so refreshing during the age of Grunge to hear such acoustic, heartfelt music. I could sit in a coffeehouse all day and just listen away. I loved that she wrote her own songs and amazed at how she could come up with so MANY great songs!! I was also intrigued by her personal story of her rise to fame. I'm a sucker for rags to riches stories....maybe I hope it will happen to me someday?!?!

What really sealed the deal for me and made me a DIE-HARD JEWEL FAN is one line: "If I could tell the world one thing it would be, that we're all OK". Hands made me forever hooked!!

Well I've always liked the singles Jewel put out but I was young when she started... I mean 1995? I was 12 ha ha. I remember liking Hands a lot and then when Standing Still came out I loved it but honestly I was like this big pirate so it was one of those songs I just DLed and put it on a mixed cd with I'm sure some other music I would be ambarrassed to list here haha I can't even remember what came out at that time... that song "How You Remind Me" by Nickelback I remember but I still love that song even though I don't really like Nickelback too much...
Anyways back to Jewel, I didn't really listen to her in between there and GAIW, I heard Intuition and thought she was a sell-out... when I heard Again & Again I downloaded it on iTunes and loved it so I started getting all her cd's (starting w/ Spirit) from my "bargain box" (except GAIW I got the Target cd/dvd) and I was like WTF was I thinking she is awesome!!!?? So I guess I am fairly a new fan though I have followed her singles throughout the years kind of.
Honestly though before now I don't think my mind was developed enough to really "get" her music.

Sitdogboy.........no, sorry, it wasn't my cat that made me love Jewel. HOWEVER, I LOVE CATS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I have 2 kitties, they are my babies. I like to call them my "fur-children". But I don't dress them up or give them human names like some people do. I grew up on a farm and we had TONS of cats, and I miss that. Now I live in the city. But I still get to go visit my parents quite a bit, so I get to see all the cats. Yes, I'm a cat person at heart! (I think it's ironic that your name is SitDogBoy!!)

I just have the one Kitty! His name is Baz and he'll be 11 in a couple of months.

He doesn't mix well with other cats, otherwise we'd have another one. We'll let him have his 'retirement' and then get 2 cats when he's gone. I've had him since he was just 8 weeks old. I love kittens!!

I came across jewel one day on the internet back when it was all dailup and you paid by the hour. I found who will save your soul and was hooked but didnt know who sang it so i searched and searched and searched... i finally found out it was jewel who sang it and i was hooked and been a fan ever since... i'm 22 know and started listening when i was 12... But i will admit that i did lose track a little bit and did not know THIS WAY came out i found out when my girlfriend (now my fiance) bought me the cd cause i always talked about how great Jewel's music was and how i was the only kid in high school with a system that was listening to Jewel... lol... so know i still love Jewel, listen to her music and play it on a much better custom system in my car that my neighbors dont mind since its Jewel they can hear coming down the road and not rap lol

My parents have about 25-30 cats right now (outside cats of course, only 1 VERY LUCKY kitty is a housecat), and 12 of those are little kittens!!!!!!!! They are known as the "Cat Ranch" of the town I'm from. The little town doesn't have a humane society, and only 1 vet's office so all the strays are brought to our place for a nice home in the barn. They get fed all kinds of good food and have a warm place to sleep. What's amazing is that they all have names, are lapcats, and purr at the sight of you. I'm ready for a trip "home" right now!!!

Yep, he is still getting bigger and making as much noise as possible at the crack of dawn. He still won't let anyone go near him but he's happy plodding around the garden and munchin his corn flakes.
