Re: Dusting off some memories

Dusty was a singer with real soul................amazing voice.    Going Back still gives me goosebumps everytime I hear it - my favourite song of hers. I once tried to copy her "panda eyes" make-up.....................needless to say my mother was not amused as I was only 13 at the time  Smiley

Re: Dusting off some memories

I agree with you all about Dusty. She was a wonderful singer, and whenever I heard her voice on the radio I just had to stop what I was doing and listen.
The only other singer who also gave me goose-bumps  was Karen Carpenter. It was a tragedy she died so young. I could still listen to this one all day:

Re: Dusting off some memories

Completely agree about Karen Carpenter. She had a quality to her voice that can't be "trained" into it. Not a particularly "good" singer, didn't always hit the notes cleanly. But like Heloman I could listen to her all day.
An American music magazine (I can't remember which one) at the height of the Carpenters career wrote they estimated that 60% of American males were in love with Karen Carpenter.
Experience; is something you gain, just after you needed it most.

When faced with two choices, simply toss a coin. It works not because it settles the question for you. But because in that brief moment while the coin is in the air. You suddenly know what you are hoping for.
