Some people just got it – the capacity to sing as though every song was about them. Or you. It´s funny how a voice can touch you across oceans, borders and experience, but it really can.
I love a lot of music, a lot of singers, a lot of voices, but here are a few favorites – none of them are loud at all, but quite humble and let their voice speak for itself. Some of them are loud. They´re all fantastic.
Listen to: Someone like you.
The grand dame who has followed me since I was 14 and learnt of heartbreak from her. She can be giddy, she can be mellow.
Listen to: I can´t give you anything but love.
You say 80´s, I say love.
Listen to: The Sweetest Gift
Best happy music, best angry music, best get-up-and-get-out music.
Listen to: You´ve got the love.
Sometimes such a broken voice, which makes it so frekkin´good.
Listen to: Both sides now.
The hard voice of the 50´s. Took a tough turn for female voices, made it hers.
Listen to: Feeling good.
