And it ain’t Lady Gaga. First of all, nothing but praise to the past greats like Janis Joplin, Emmylou Harris and Joni Mitchell amongst others who’ve paved the way to great female musicians today(can’t leave out Dusty Springfield for that matter). There are tons of up and comers out there making it cool again to be a woman singer such as Adele and Grace Potter, but there is one true queen of musical artistry:
That’s right, the Icelandic goddess herself holds the throne and ain’t about to give it up anytime soon. She’s pushing 45 and has more talent in her left pinky than the all the top charting Divas combined. Even from her days from the Sugarcubes, she was a breath of fresh air to the music world.
And on her own, she broke all the rules of music and pushed it to boundaries so ahead of her time that she influenced many great bands of modern days.
And that’s not even mentioning her live work. Live, she is backed by full orchestras, homeless drummers, pretty much anythng you can think of. And she certainly doesn’t need to lip-synch like the American shit that gets pumped on the radio nowadays.
see the 2:12 moment for what I’m talking about. Let’s see that one, Britney.
Yeah, I know I’m getting ‘Post’ heavy, but there’s no denying the greatness in those performances. Also. If you haven’t seen ‘Dancer in the Dark’ WATCH IT. She can act too, and its a great flick as far as cinematography is concerned.
Fortunately for us, she ain’t close to done yet. She’s got multiple things in the works as well as a six night run in Manchester. England to promote Biophilia. Do I smell a new tour coming? I certainly hope so.
