Look what they've done to my song, Ma...

> Anything at all--anything--by Ella Fitzgerald
The only time in my life I have ever bought a ticket from a scalper
was to see Ella along with Joe Pas at the Hollywood bowl.
As far as I know, it was her last concert.
Or Sarah Vaughn. Or Diana Krall (had to put on one of her CDs now). Or
K.Battle or C. Bartoli or EmmyLou Harris (take a listen to "To Daddy")
or Kitty Wells and last but certainly not least: Patsy Cline.
That was and is Cyndi Lauper, she's not only still around, she's still
She's still around too, Sheryl Crow. Used to sing backup for Prince and Bob
Dylan, taught music to kids for a while too. Multi Grammy winner, was
engaged to cyclist Lance Armstrong , surviving breast cancer and still
singing and recording.
Sarah and Patsy I know. Diana I'm learning. Problem is, I wear
heavy-duty hearing aids and can't appreciate the technical/artistic side
of music. I go for mood, texture, emotion--but that's what art is
supposed to do, eh? Everything else is just rationalization.
Discuss: is art manipulative?
Good songs. You should add these to your list:
Someday by Johnette Napolitano of Concrete Blonde
Candy by Natalie Merchant of Ten Thousand Maniacs
I Can't Make You Love Me by Bonnie Raitt

OK, now I like that list. And a lot more titles from those ladies,
So check out
What Are You Doing For The Rest Of Your Life? by Dusty Springfield.
Yup she's still with us, and that is her voice from a live club date
that you hear on one of the diamond commercials on TV.
And just about anything by Diane Schuur, but especially "Teach Me
As a matter of fact, I hope to be listening to them and others tonight
Check out Diane's "Collection". Long a offbeat jazz staple, she has
her own sound.
Yeah! Me too. I like a lot of the Indigo girls stuff.
Annnddddd...... who here remembers "The Joy of Cooking"? A precursor
to the Indigo Girls, they had a pleasant and sunny sound and were
popular in the early 70s.
Peggy Lee - Fever
Bonny Rait - just about anything she sings
Joplin - Piece of My Heart, Bobby McGee
Martina McBride - Let Freedom Ring
Now back to The Band
And the early rapper - Phil Harris - Woodsman, Woodsman,
Spare That Tree - just to keep things wood related.
> Julie London can bring real heart palpitations with "My Funny
Remember her testimony before a senate committee on obscene material
when she did her rendition of "Mickey Mouse"?
"M", "I", "C",
"K", "E", "Y",
never sounded soooo good.
