|People who have a tendancy to go up and down the scales all the time are way up there for me.Mainly women as well I suppose.So people like Mariah Carey,Celine Dion,Whitney Houston etc...I`m like..."Take out the bloody love eggs and sing it properly for pity`s sakes"..Second to those guys are a lot of those Male Heavy/AOR types particularly from the 80`s I guess.All that.. "We`ve gotta` hoarghld on to what we`ve got"sock trousered bravado sort of thing.Barry Palmer is probably just about "under the wire" for me,but I`m still wincing through certain passages if you know what I mean!?|
I have to agree with you on that Mick. I generally think Black women have great singing vioces. I used to think Claire Torrey who did the vocals on Pink Floyd's The Great Gig In The Sky was black until I saw a picture of her. People in the world of rock and pop who annoy me Jon Anderson, I can't stand what I call high pitched sqeaky men. About Yes I like the odd track, I've given my boyfriend a challenge to try and convert me into a Yes fan. I did'nt use to like Geddy Lee from Rush, I like their music, but I've got more into Rush with time. Axl Rose, I used to love Guns n Roses when I was 18/19 and about 11 years ago I heard "Appetite For Destruction" at a party and I thought how terrible the album is , Bjork I find really annoying too .
Since Nightspore mentioned Bob Dylan, I do like Dylan, but I think on some of his more depressing tracks I do find his voice a bit lugubrious, only thing I dislike about Dylan really,I really do like his more fast paced numbers such as "like A Rollin' Stone" and "Subterrainean Home Sick Blues" , I'll let you know if I think of anymore.
I agree with you Dirk about Max Bygraves and Orville the Duck , and also the kid who did "It's Horrible Being In Love When You're Eight and a Half" since you mentioned them, add to that St Winnifred's School Choir, who did "Grandma I Love You" .
I'm currently listening to Queen but I've got that GILY song in my head now WAAAAAARRRRRRGGGGGGGHHHHHHHH!!!!!!!
I agree with Ugo I do miss Alan's posting on here, I do hope he returns, as there was many an intelligent and lively debate on here. Anyone wish to join the Alan D Appreciation Society?? To try and persuade him to come back.
I'm going slightly mad,
It finally happened, I'm slightly mad , just very slightly mad
If you feel a little glum to Hergest Ridge you should come.
I'm challenging taboos surrounding mental health
