Excellent idea and also throw in some of your rambling it’s always a delight
Sophie 🌊🌀 You're Thee PERFECT STORM....I am amazed at the talents you possess
The original is hands down one of my favorite songs of all time... thank you Sophie! I would to hear an a capella or acoustic version
Sophie, I love your stripped down piano slow version of Damn. That’s the one I played 100 times to learn. I nailed it too, thanks to Ester. My practice was mostly for nerve control and who knew Ester was the answer. Haha. Hope all is well!! Xxxxx
Sophie, Sophie, Sophie, how have you been? I think a blues version would be so cool sounding and you could really groove to it , in a blues kind of way. It is 💘 lovely to see and hear your voice again! Take good care of yourself and the kids and animals. Talk to you later.
That’s song! Your beautiful voice ❤️ Love it! Saw you live in LA back in the 90’s! Still jam to that song!

Dear Sophie. Where's?
Dear Sophie. A masterpiece, like "Damn I Wish I Was Your Lover" stands the test of time. Do You think that Michelangelo, if he was alive, would look at the Sistine Chapel ceiling and say, "I'll repaint the ceiling using watercolours."
I am in anticipation of the arrival of my AILMDD package ! I need a new cd to listen to , when ur in a car as much as I am the radio gets really really boring !
I love these Q&A videos but man o man does she like to keep us waiting for the answers ! Whatever happened to that TuesdayTune series ? I'd love to hear some more tunes !
Oh and thieves , what ????? Sure hope they were stopped in their tracks with their bs thievery !! Cause that's so not cool !!!!
Is it too late to ask another question 🤔 Michelle Huffman and I were just discussing Sophies 30th Anniversary " Come inside my jungle book" tour/celebration. I was wondering if Sophie would explain her debut album title, how did she come up with that and what's it all about anyways ???
you have been and continue to be a liggt in some pretty dark times for me, i too have that feeling of how i cant wait!!!!! I Love you. you are a very talented special gift the universe has blessed us with. take care and enjoy!!!
Sophie, hi again!! I just wanted to comment, that I think that what you said, was a great idea, the raw , with no additives, can be so much more sometimes. I was so busy the other day, , and apologize for my brief words.
will you be coming to Florida or better, Orlando area?
Sophie darling I love you. Your music inspires me ever since you started your career. You have that special talent for musical self expression. I love it! I embrace it!! You know it. Sure wanna duet with you for Damn I Wish You Were My Lover and As I Lay Me Down. You're a classy lady. I love you
You are a great singer AND soo beautiful 👌😍🌹
I’d love to know the story of how that album and its mind blowing musicians came together. Omar Hakim brings it to another level. I used to sit w headphones and listen over and over to the layers. It changed my mind and life as a musician when I was 18.
Can’t wait to see this 30th anniversary production! 😍
Hi Sophie B Hawkins I love that song ass lay me down to sleep
Sophie, you are always such a pleasure! Sounds Good!
We need NEW ALBUM PLEASE 😎😎😎👌👌👌👌😊 2021 NEW , 2022 anniversary 👌👌👌😎😎😎
Sounds grrreat !
THE BIG 30 🙌
So how old when initially signed , 25 26 ? Has it flown by you or nah ? Feel like yesterday or a few " life times " ago ?
Sophie, It's always Great with you!!! Love the video! I've decided that I'm not sure if the moon counts for a month of wishes, so I will be back looking for a star tonight.
Sophie 🌊🌀 ~~ Just when I think there is nothing more ( until The Woman W/ Sea Dog....you just keep getting more and more mesmerizing....Thank You
Dear Sophie. Stunningly beautiful!!
Full confession...the only way I could bring myself to walk to my father's dead body was with this song. Real talk...I didn't want his sex, but you know...close enough to give me the courage to meet the corpse. Don't ever underestimate the power of your songs.
Sophie, you voice is so good to my ears!! I went on a walk today,. I talked to the squirrels and the birds, and asked them how they were doing? I brought you something back from my walk, here is a smile! Always, hejhal
Dear Sophie. Full concert PLEASE!!!
Sophie you are extremely talented and such a humble and gentle soul🌊🌀
Brilliant & beautiful as always
Luv you Sophie. Beautiful song. Lp too.
I Love You "Sophie" 💗
One of my favorites ❤️
Only Love 💜
Very nice 😊 can't wait to see the new video Sophie !
Hey Sophie! So I always love to hear any versions of your songs, and definitely in their original state! Last night, I looked for a star to wish on, but there wasn't any, so I used the moon instead. I can be lazy now, the moon should cover my wishes for a month, don't you think? Always, hejhal
Is the photo supposed to be distorted?
Hello Sophie 🌊🌀, How do you do? I was wondering if and when you might consider selling some prints of your paintings I just adore this painting
I can't wait to see more Q&A videos 😊 They are FUN !!
No question, just a statement saying that I love and admire you and what you stand for. You are an inspiration and I can't wait until the day comes when I can see you in person again. Much love. Sue
Hi Sophie, I'm Pauline from Seattle. Is being an artist a kind of leadership that is designed to make the world a better place similar to being a parent or a teacher or a guide? And if you are taking requests: will you please sing As I Lay Me Down?
Hola Sophie, mi inglés es malo. Vivo en Buenos Aires Argentina. Solo quiero decirte que eres una de mis artistas favoritas, que el CD que más amo es Whaler. Que eres una inspiración a mi vida y tu música forma parte de mi soundtrack de vida. Deseo que estés bien tu y tu familia y que se cuiden del covid19. Te envio un gran saludo desde mi corazón. Te amo.
Hi! I’m Denise from Bristow Va. I have all of your records and have been a fan forever. Your music has been so meaningful in my life and I want to thank you for that. My question is, did you write the songs on Whaler at a particular time in your life?
Not a question but more of a statement...many years ago my girlfriend and I saw you and met you in Philadelphia. She is deaf and you signed to her which was beyond fabulous ...then a yearl later, when you were back in Philadelphia you remembered her and SIGNED to her ...we were in our early 20’s then and now in our 40’s! Thank you for making something beautiful happen!
Hi Sophie glad your well .come back to the Bull Run.we love your music 🎶 When it’s save
What inspired the song As I lay me down to sleep!
What are you saying in “As I Lay Me Down” as part of the chorus? It sounds like la la la la....it’s beautiful, but I can’t tell if it’s only vocals or words.😄😄
Glad to have the chance to talk to you. I dont have any questions but to tell you I ve been following you since 1992 when you succeded with Damn I wish...i didnt stop until I got the lyrics and recorded it in a cassette. You know, there was other times. Thanks a lot for your wonderful music!
I'd love to hear about your relationships with music and painting; are they different? Do you approach them differently? How do they make you feel? John, Australia.
Hi Sophie , not that long ago you have released a brand new version of ‘As I Lay Me Down’. I believe we are all waiting for a new album , are you planning to release some new versions of your old songs? Some of us grew up listening to these , it’s a huge and important part of our lives. Patryk from Poland.
Can you please list all the musical instruments do you play and which one is the one that has inspired you the most? This is Amena from Leesburg, Va.
Hey Sophie! I took acting classes with you in the 80s - will you return to acting again? Maybe performance art? Love, Kim
Hello Sophie, I missed you again! Sorry I'm so late! Do you still wish.on a star? I do, but sometimes I look at it again and it's an airplane, so I get disappointed. Always, shannan from Nebraska

Hi Sophie.. these are weird times.. thank you for sharing.. What are you most hopeful about as you look to the future? From ATL....
I love 'as I lay me down' it is my favorite song by you.
I have often thought about Mr Tugboat Hello, the words and show-tune melody... so great to hear you talk about it!
I really love that song, your voice and lyrics create such rich images. Thank you for sharing.
Sophie's 🌊🌀 mind is so busy ....always....Theee PERFECT STORM
❤️ your vivid story answers xx
Sophie, I love you!!
Hello Sophie B. Hawkins, how are you? I like the old tugboats and ships, and old bridges built. This photo here , is of an old boat I have hanging in my home. take good care with the kids, always hejhal
Harbinger by Paula Cole is also one of my favorite all time CDs.
Hello sophie, I like to listen to your stories! You have a beautiful talking voice and singing voice!
Come to my window...
Dear Sophie. I know that Melissa is grieving the death of her son. But is there a chance for a reunion in the future? Maybe the 3 of you touring as a group? Concert halls and stadiums would sell out for sure! What about each of you contributing from your homes to a joint online streaming concert? The online concert would set the foundation for future collaboration. A new beginning!
She is so right on so truthful ! This resonates with me, a painter and mosaic artist
Amy Tate - here’s your answer! - Team Sophie
Dear miss B. Hawkins , I don't know how to reach you either then to respond under a post of you're self. In the year 2005 I had leukemia, and after 3 years of intensive chemo i'am still here. But there was a song of you that held a special feeling to me. It was you're hit song 'right beside you'... and I just heard it again on the radio... For some reason this was my song in 2005 when i was battling leukemia. I always played a CD where this song was on and then I would fall in sleep with my discman... It was the line 'right beside you ' that really helpt me keep my head clear. There was this girl in my friends group that kept my spirits up. When i here this song I always think about that period full of chemo and that girl that always pusht my survival mode. They say some songs chance people's lives, but I can say this song did this for me. I just wanted to tell you this , and let you now that you're music really made a difference. At least to me. Thank you 💪🏻. Best wishes Henk from Holland / The Netherlands
Damn I wish I were your lover!!!
Holy cow.. People..calm down lol..
"Sophie's Heart Belongs to Her Children"
Dear Sophie. Artistic creations for the masses provide financial freedom for one's own art.
Oh me too , don't we all !? I just love this woman ,marry me ! Lol
Hello Sophie! I hope you and your kids are good! I like to listen to your thoughts and what you are thinking.!Always hejhal
Nice Sophie! Please check your email as I sent a few requests for another "at home" concert. Andi
I have been waiting to hear from your booking agent about a similar event for my 25th wedding anniversary. My wife walked the aisle to "As I Lay Me", and I'd like to do something for her that she will never forget.
Dear Sophie. Always Right Beside You. Always
Thanks for sharing always enjoyable to learn more about you !
So good!!! Thanks Sophie!! That is one of my favorite songs ever!♥️ Happy Pride Month! 🌈
Can not stop loving this song❤
Sophie, you can break down my door anytime, , but afterwards could you please help me put it up again. Sophie you sound wonderful,! I love to see you play guitar! 😉
You never disappoint. First time I saw you live, I was when I was 17 and fell stupid in love. I’ve seen you so many times since (let’s just say, I’m far away from 17 now.). Always and truly amazing. Much respect for those pipes.
This song helped me through so many things.love you Sophie.always will!💓

Dear Sophie. "Realize deeply that the present moment is all you ever have." Eckhart Tolle

On the evening of April 4, 1968 Senator Robert F. Kennedy, while campaigning for the Democratic nomination for president, was scheduled to give a prepared speech to a crowd of Black Americans in Indianapolis Indiana. Minutes before taking the podium in a park, Senator Kennedy was told that the Rev. Dr. Martin Luther King Jr. had been assassinated in Memphis Tennessee. The crowd did not know this. Senator Kennedy set aside his prepared speech and gave this extemporaneous speech: "I have bad news for you, for all of our fellow citizens, and people who love peace all over the world, and that is that Martin Luther King was shot and killed tonight. Martin Luther King dedicated his life to love and to justice for his fellow human beings, and he died because of that effort. In this difficult day, in this difficult time for the United States, it is perhaps well to ask what kind of a nation we are and what direction we want to move in. For those of you who are black--considering the evidence there evidently is that there were white people who were responsible--you can be filled with bitterness, with hatred, and a desire for revenge. We can move in that direction as a country, in great polarization--black people amongst black, white people amongst white, filled with hatred toward one another. Or we can make an effort, as Martin Luther King did, to understand and to comprehend, and to replace that violence, that stain of bloodshed that has spread across our land, with an effort to understand with compassion and love. For those of you who are black and are tempted to be filled with hatred and distrust at the injustice of such an act, against all white people, I can only say that I feel in my own heart the same kind of feeling. I had a member of my family killed, but he was killed by a white man. But we have to make an effort in the United States, we have to make an effort to understand, to go beyond these rather difficult times. My favourite poet was Aeschylus. He wrote: "In our sleep, pain which cannot forget falls drop by drop upon the heart until, in our own despair, against our will, comes wisdom through the awful grace of God." What we need in the United States is not division; what we need in the United States is not hatred; what we need in the United States is not violence or lawlessness; but love and wisdom, and compassion toward one another, and a feeling of justice toward those who still suffer within our country, whether they be white or they be black. So I shall ask you tonight to return home, to say a prayer for the family of Martin Luther King, that's true, but more importantly to say a prayer for our own country, which all of us love--a prayer for understanding and that compassion of which I spoke. We can do well in this country. We will have difficult times; we've had difficult times in the past; we will have difficult times in the future. It is not the end of violence; it is not the end of lawlessness; it is not the end of disorder. But the vast majority of white people and the vast majority of black people in this country want to live together, want to improve the quality of our life, and want justice for all human beings who abide in our land. Let us dedicate ourselves to what the Greeks wrote so many years ago: to tame the savageness of man and make gentle the life of this world. Let us dedicate ourselves to that, and say a prayer for our country and for our people." That evening every city in the United States burned with rioting and hatred -- except Indianapolis Indiana. People left the park where Senator Kennedy spoke. They went home, wept, grieved, and prayed.
I'm so thankful you performed it one time on one of the Australian concerts ❤️
Laura and I will see ya tomorrow nite.
I love you ❤️❤️❤️
Hi Sophie, it is very nice to have a taste of what is coming this Friday!
Your music is always pure gold.
I had this song on repeat one night. I think I was feeling really lonely and lustful. I love these intense artful lyrics: "I want his hands, I want his chest, I want his feet, I want his sex!...You've broken down the door and there is no place to hide." Genius.
Your voice has always been so sultry, imagine it always will.
Loving your work Sophie B! ❤️ xx
I will be there and I just know that you will be magnificent Sophie Thee PERFECT STORM🌊🌀
Just got my ticket 🙂
Love your songs Sophie
Looking forward to it!
So looking fwd to hearing AND seeing you xxx
Seat is guaranteed!
Thanks for the beautiful song Sophie B. Hawkins Alisa Farina Live Climate
Dear Sophie. Miracles do happen! I've been searching for your cd's/vinyl for the last few years unsuccessfully. I've searched used record stores in the greater Toronto area, Buffalo, Chicago, and Pittsburgh to no avail. I won't buy on line as the quality is less than advertised. I visited a small out of the way used record store in Guelph Ontario. I had some time on my hands so I thought, "Why not stop in and ask." Not only did the owner have an index divider with "Sophie B. Hawkins" written on it, but he had original cd's of "Whaler" and "Tongues and Tails!" I was shocked and elated at the same time! Of course I bought them. I can't wait for your concert!
Hey Sophie! This is a day of giving thanks and appreciation to all and everything that has sacrificed for us, but we should think everyday about the sacrifices made. I love your singing, always! I also like your flag.
Right beside you is absolutely my favorite song you have ever done Sophie! ❤
Sophie you're so right...we have to help each other...🌊🌀
Hi, Sophie, I am finally here. I always said I would be, sometimes I'm just slow. It is very nice to listen to your thoughts. We should always be so grateful, respectful, and thankful, for anyone or anything that sacrifices for us! Always , Hejhal
So we beat on, boats against the current, borne back ceaselessly into the past. (From "The Great Gatsby," by F. Scott Fitzgerald.
Such lovely thoughts of your memories🌊🌀 Thank you Sophie
Dear Sophie. I am so happy for You for having to release more tickets due to the demand for your concert! No one Sophie, but no one, works harder than You and deserves more success than You. My friends and I are throwing a "Sophie B. Hawkins" party from our respective living rooms, connected by social media and enjoying your concert "together." You are a "Person of the LIght!" Thank you!
Team Sophie here... since we posted this yesterday, the initial offering of tickets sold out! Thank you all so much for your support of Sophie! We worked with the producers to release more tickets and they have. There are approximately 30 virtual ‘seats’ left at the time we’re posting this comment.
Sophie, hi! I am very excited for the show! I can hear kids having fun, that is great!
Again I want to thank Heidi Rousseau for helping me to " Be at " 🌊🌀 Only Love show May 29th .....much love 😘✌
I’ve tried buying a ticket but it’s just an endless loop. 🤷♀️
Sounds fun , I'll be there !
Lose your way! Yes! 🪕
I will be there 🌊🌀
Most entertainers are doing shows for free
Dear Sophie. Are you ready to float "You Are My Balloon?" I bought tickets for friends also. I found the experience with Stageit frustrating. Stageit's customer service is non existent as they haven't responded to a question I submitted last Friday.
Dear Sophie. Just bought my fourth ticket, for a Canadian Expat living in North Carolina. You're going to have many Canadian friends on May 29! Can You begin your concert by leading us in singing "O Canada," the Canadian National Anthem?🇨🇦
Dear Sophie. This is Kara Shaw from Fergus Ontario. Listen to Kara and bathe in the Light of your inspiration.
Always a pleasure ❤
Hi Sophie, a balance , or moderation is very important for everything. That is how everything can connect best and have the best relationship with each other. I always love to listen to your thoughts, and appreciate them. Always, hejhal
Hello Sophie, Thanks for sharing your thoughts and feelings. Staying in the present and doing what we love is very important to achieve a well balanced life✌🏼🎼
You are letting us into your thoughts ....And that is awesome 🌊🌀 Thank you
For making quarantine a lil more bearable ....... You're so kind and giving to us all ❤
Hy Sophie I like your music
I love thinking we all have flashes of brilliance. Maybe only flashes but still brilliance nonetheless. ⚡️
