Top Five On Friday – Week 48
Top 5 Beautiful Voices
And if you’re so disposed, tell us why you picked the voices you did and if you want to share a favorite song by each, feel free! Happy Memeing!
My Picks – In No Particular Order:
I think what you should listen to all of my picks, and hold off judgement until you’ve listened to them all … listen to the singing voice on each…. I think I picked good ones this week! I Had To! I missed week 46 and week 47 😀
I was Sarah McLachlan’s biggest fan .. from the beginning .. “Touch”, “Solace” (which is her best in my opinion), and “Fumbling Towards Ecstacy”. Since “The Freedom Sessions” was released … I just didn’t really care about the next ‘remix’ or ‘session’ or ‘exclusive’ or ‘live version’ … My favorite song is the opening one on Fumbling Towards Ecstacy but it’s more ‘Rock’ish .. and while I like 80% of Touch album .. Solace is 100% in my books. Every song is great. Sarah’s voice shines beautifully in all the songs .. especially this one! (Crank up the Bass!)

When I first watched “Magnolia” movie and listened to the song “Wise Up” was when my interest was peaked. I never heard that song before. I rewinded the VHS recorder and learned in the credits it was Aimee Mann. I immediately went out on a quest to get as much as her music as possible. If you are listening to her songs by yourself, cranked really loud – well, you probably know what I mean. This is her best song in my opinion.

Who doesn’t know Madonna? She has some terrible songs, some decent songs, song good songs, and some bad songs. I have never turned off the radio when I heard a Madonna song. But, there are two songs that are on my “MUST HAVE” list .. meaning if I burn a CD —> these two songs are there. If I have a random bunch of songs on my Musicmatch Playlist … —> These two songs are always there. I have the videos for both of them – if you want ’em – ask.

Most of you familiar with Ace of Base probably knows Jenny Berggren sang most of the songs, except it was her sister Linn (Malin) Berggren that got me to notice this band and its songs … from this favorite song:

For the girls … I figure .. you probably think GUYS voices are ‘beautiful’ too .. Well .. if that is the case, this is probably the best male voice and songs that I know of … from a technical singing point of view 🙂 AND YES THERE IS A COMEBACK AFTER 30 YEARS! Hard to believe 🙂 There’s a local story that their album “House on the Hill” sold the most copies here in Winnipeg, Manitoba Canada. I don’t know if it is true or not. But, when you drive around the Perimeter of the city, you see about 10 miles down the road .. “Stony Mountain Penitentiary
” – it’s a medium security prison, on a hill …
