Saturday Song

Maybe I'm an old fuddy-duddy, but I turn off the radio at young tinny sopranos who groan rather than sing. They seem to be everywhere.

Amy McDonald is the anti-tinny. I like.

    Great song! Hadn't heard her before.

  2. That is a great song. Another artist for me to check out, thanks.

  3. No maybe Baby.

    Not a soprano either.
    Alto? Contralto?
    Definitely talented.

    Re: the tinny warbling groaners,
    blame Patti LaBelle.
    Somehow her "style" seeped into the
    water table of young singers.

  4. If you're an old fuddy duddy, what does that make me?

    Although a song writer in the past, I can no longer listen to most of what comes over the air waves.

    The worst, even worse than your tinny warbling groaners are the screamers...everybody's screaming! Why? Are their voices so freaking bad they can't just sing?

    I was thinking about the old days, the 70's, when songs sung by women got less air time than songs sung by men, and then I heard this. Maybe her music would have been heard than, and maybe it wouldn't. I'm glad I heard it now.

  6. Pretty good!

    I like the Scottish lilt.

    There are many very good young female performers, I'd say, but I'd suggest sticking to the alternative stations and off the pop crap.


I really look forward to hearing what you have to say. I do moderate comments, but non-spam comments will take less than 24 hours to appear... Thanks!
