    Good point there; now that is a woman with lungs. Either one of you heard her Sono l'Antichristo? It was on that Nervous Systems compilation (amazing CD btw). P.s. DAMN IT! How could I forget Lady Day?

    I haven't, actually. Saw her live once; it was otherworldly. I literally felt euphoric afterward. Partially it was that I was just incredibly impressed with her range and power, but much as I love her, it was also partly one of those "because it feels so good when it stops" moments. She's amazing.

    I like some of the others mentioned. I really love Diana Krall's voice. Haven't seen her mentioned yet.

    I too saw Galas at a local theatre a couple of years ago. Great set of lungs.[​IMG]
    A surprise for my date, for whom it was quite a different experience to her normal fare. Needless to say I got none that night: obviously she had no taste. [​IMG]

    Mariah Carey will always be The Voice...but mostly the old stuff is any good and lives up to her title.

    Haha, definitely not date material unless the girl is either infinitely cool or maybe real heavy into BDSM.... Only vaguely related, but my fiancee, back when we first started dating, asked me once to make sure that whatever happened, I'd wake her at 7am the next morning. I think she was imagining me bringing her a freshly-brewed cup of coffee and gently calling her name. What she got was Merzbow. I didn't get any that night, either. [​IMG]
