So, I am totally exhausted and need to post, but the Crazy Shannon post deserves all my energy.
I am going to come back soon, I promise. PMAC (backwards) is up and running great. So, I should have energy (and my voice back) soon.
Thank you to my faithful friends who check to see if I am alive! I am.
I thought I would throw out a question. Debbie and Jennifer both recently asked some interesting things and I have one now.
I was enjoying some music in the car today. If I could have any "super power" it would be to sing. Like SANG. Like, WOW, that is some set of pipes. I am convinced that if I could in fact sing, I would be famous. So here is my question:
If you could sing like anyone, who would it be?
PS- I just read a great post by Hairline Fracture. If you have kid's, it is a must read.
And now I'm going to be thinking about this for the rest of the night and end up regretting that answer when I think of an even BETTER one...I reserve the right to change my decision...
And now I know why I've been getting so many hits from your blog today. Thanks for the shout out :)!
Ann Wilson (so I could belt out "Alone" in that upper register), Debbie Harry (of Blondie, so I could sing "Call Me," and score higher on Rock Band), and Patsy Cline...I just want to be her. And then there's Alison Krauss, Aimee Mann, Karen Carpenter, Rita Springer, Norah Jones, Carole King, Gladys Knight...
And on and on. Oh, and Lenny Kravitz...his voice oozes sex. Sigh.
But only if I could have her body and her husband too!
oh and by the way
Hey I came up with a fun and exciteing way to fogive, and wanted to invite you to check it out and participate!!! Heres the link:
"real raggin wednesdays" http://theloalbos.blogspot.com/2008/06/real-raggin-wed-first-rag.html
and rag on sistas!!
So since we're just dreamin' here, can I take 'em both for different occasions?
*Not to say that I haven't already done this while failing miserably.
I don't know who'd I'd want to sing like. I wouldn't mind having a good singing voice, but I'd rather be able to paint or create some amazing visual art. :o)
To answer your question...hmmm. When I was a teenager it was unquestionably Whitney Houston whose voice I coveted. I wouldn't mind sounding like Ann Wilson or the girl from Evanessence for the power songs, but for the love songs I'd go with Diana Krall. My husband thinks her voice is super sexy, and I have to agree.
Love her voice.
But if you put all of that together, I'm sure it would sound freaky, like when they do a photoshop to show you how a person would look with different celebrities' body parts. So if I have to pick just one I'll go for Kelly Clarkson.
Now I would give anything to sing like #1 my old self, #2 anybody who can carry a tune, #3 carrie, kelly or even David Cook
I love the folky kind of voices.
Man, I ALWAYS wished I could be a singer!
I use to wan to be the chick that sang Two Of Hearts.
P.S. I'm glad your still alive at PMAC!
Hope you feel better soon.
And If I were a guy it would have to be Ray LaMontagne.
Off to check out that book.
As it is, my singing makes my dog start frantically licking my face. i think it hurts her ears...
