That's what they do with lightbulbs in the subway. Maybe there was concern that some ne'er-do-well would unscrew it and stuff it down his pants when nobody was looking. Or her pants. Capris, probably, given the era.

Victoria Lloyd, Nomi Harper, Lori Oz, Marie Narciso, Sara Furrer, Karen Carpenter come to mind.

The return of the Preacher's daughter...
 
I find this singer very 'alluring', and she's not inhibited or afraid to let it all hang out. I'm also VERY surprised she hasn't been mentioned in this thread, so let me be the first to rectify the situation...

Don't spose anyone will read this now ... but for me, as they came into my head :

1. Linda Ronstadt. (She could do any style, perfectly)
2. Emmy-Lou Harris (She could break your heart with a verse, and sing harmony to ANYONE!)
3. Norah Jones (she just makes swoon!)
4. Diana Krall (such a great musician)

Then we get into the "real" singers of earlier eras

Julie London

Peggy Lee

Nina Simone

Etta James

I could go on indefinitely.

Recently discovered her. She sounds happy, and I like that.

I was a huge Tori fan in the 90s, and "Boys For Pele" is my favorite album of hers. I was fortunate to see her on that tour, and she put on a phenomenal show.
