A lesson in voice…..  

Posted at 8:10 am in rivercityvibe

I appreciate quality in all things. Part of my mission with rivercityvibe (and it is a mission – with a unifying purpose, rehearsals, synchronizing of watches – the whole lot) is to highlight quality to the faithful. That’s what I am doing here, with perhaps the best example of vocal range, control and singing talent I have ever seen. It’s Chrissie Hynde singing Radiohead’s classic Creep. Grip your ADHD by the balls and watch the whole thing. You’ll be better for it:

The peculiar karaoke lyrics are annoying, aren’t they? But most would agree – that is pretty fucking awesome. I saw The Pretenders live about eight years ago. Chrissie had just been married for the third time, to a Colombian guy who she brought on stage and announced to all that she only married him for the quality coke he had access to…….

It didn’t last. The marriage, I mean. Don’t know about the coke.

  1. nicely done, i must say. i have a friend who does a decent rendition when he gets up to the mike. strangely enough, he also does alice in chains’ man in the box well.
