I don't know that one. She is in a lot of film soundtracks like Gladiator. The only Dead Can Dance album I like is Into the Labyrinthkeeper of the quays said:listening to 'aria' by lisa gerrard very nice..bit like the song from the myst...BigH said:I don't know SOTR its not my sort of music. But whats the point of doing cover versions that sound exactly like the original?MajorFubar said:My God, finally someone who sees it my way. In general I've no axe to grind about Eva Cassidy (RIP) but she absolutely murdered SOTR, and it often seems the minute you say as such to someone, it's like you've insulted their ancestors. I'm always amazed why her rendition of it seems to have touched the conscience of the public so much when it was so truly awful...was it used to accompany some video about starving third world children or something? Genuinely I have no idea.The_Lhc said:I can't forgive her for what she did to Somewhere Over The Rainbow, that's a lovely tune and she made it unrecognizable, so now every cocking two-bit pub singer thinks they've got the right, never mind the talent, to sing it any way they choose. Tossers.BigH said:I think Eva Cassidy is a good female singer, has a good range, can sings different styles, jazz, blues, pop listen to Live at Bleas Alley or the extended version Nightbird.
So no one knows any good female singers? Some of the highest rated ones I can't stand like Whitney, how boring can you get. Theres plenty I like but not sure they are great singers.
How about Lisa Gerrard?
Of her solo albums I like Silver Tree most.
