Crush of the Week: Katie Melua

This week's Crush is singer/songwriter/Georgia peach (from the country, not the state) Katie Melua. Her Piece by Piece album was finally released stateside and what I've heard is great. It sounds different from her last one, which should somewhat shake the "Norah Jones wannabe" tag she's got. I'm really digging her cover of the Cure's "Just Like Heaven".

I'd like to amend my cool new music post to add her "Nine Million Bicycles" song. Yes, the guy playing the flute on it also played on the theme to The Good, the Bad, and the Ugly. (Peep the pretty cool video here or here.)

Was her version in the Reese Witherspoon movie of the same name?

I haven't seen the movie, but I believe so.
