Happy Birthday Stevie!




I've loved her voice for almost as long as I can remember... from the light tone of her lead vocal in Fleetwood Mac's "Rhiannon" (1975) to her lower register in later solo work like "Trouble in Shangri-La" (2001). I had a hard time deciding which song to clip for this post. I decided on "Whenever I Call You Friend" (recorded in 1978 with Kenny Loggins).

Take no offense...

I think Ms Nicks sounds like Kathrine Hepburn near the final throes of Alzhimers, Parkinsons and a good old British nanny shake in the parking lot of WalMart.

She makes me think of how eating only granola will give you a healthy colon, but very little friends.

I do not like Ms Nicks, Sam I am.

she's ok.

I searched high and low for "Stevie Nicks: What the hell is she saying" and found only a dead link to a realaudio file.

Sad. Would have been perfect.

Ya, I like her too, but not like you do!

Salem: there's lots of Stevie on YouTube, but most of the files are embed-restricted.

Salem said...

not that one! It was sort of a parody/medley of the greatest hits but even MORE unintelligible.

Oh and I thought of you when I put up my "non-worksafe" link this morning ; )
