“Tee Shirt” is Birdy’s second track to be released from The Fault in Our Stars soundtrack, following “Not About Angels,” and it’s a tender ballad that we’d easily rank as one of Birdy’s top 5 songs to date. It’s a very simple acoustic number, which isn’t exactly something new for Birdy, but it proves, once again, that she hardly needs music to deliver a touching song. Mind you, there are some little beats and flourishes of keyboards along with the acoustic guitars, and they sound quite pretty, but this song would be a winner even if it were acapella. “I’ve spent / Half this morning / Thinking about the t-shirt you sleep in,” she sings so warmly. “I should know / Cause I’d spend / Oh the whole day / Listening to your message I’m keeping / And never deleting.” Bliss, bliss, bliss.
