Giddy-up old boy it's time to go
Vous les vous savoir the love below
Brother, I've got more than you can take
But more than I can do to stay awake

I close my eyes
So I can dream of ways to keep you occupied
So I can lock you up we'll keep it classified
Alright, you're mine tonight, son
When I close my eyes

I can make you sorry when I want
Find some other house for you to haunt
Carry out your sentence in my head
All I have to do is go to bed

I close my eyes
So I can dream of ways to keep you occupied
So I can lock you up we'll keep it classified
Alright, you're mine tonight, son
When I close my eyes

Hide and seek, yellow ducky
Feeling weak or feeling lucky son

Who's got milk, the baby's crying
Shut 'em up, get 'em flying
Little kiddies bought and sold
Cos papa's got a brand new bag of gold

Tonight I'll dream of ways to keep you occupied
So I can lock you up we'll keep it classified
Alright, you're mine tonight, son
When I close my eyes
So right, I'll dream of ways to keep you occupied
Tonight I'll lock you up we'll call it classified
Alright, you're mine tonight, son
When I close my eyes

My goal is not to muddy the waters, but Florence can sing quite differently than her default mode. There is at least on piece played here that shows  quite clearly that she has more than one style. However, I have know women whose voices were pitched to the higher register  and it was no more an affectation that Robert Plant's is (Does anyone imagine that his normal speaking voice resembles his singing voice?)

Yes. 5 years ago true, still true today. Some it's just natural, other it's way over the top. Some it's all they can do... *cough* Gwen *cough*...

Fishnets and a nice voice. Va va va voom!
The bass on this tune is like a sledgehammer. Liking her work more and more.

Joan Osborne - SUCKS!

The Decemberists? are overplayed and rated and after so many listens.. their sound unbearable!

Mari Boine? Really really awful. Where do you find these people??

Shivaree? Come on? WTF!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! 

 
So sad we have to sit through this crap with only hope that someone will post some descent comments?

Parsley is the essential ingredient in taboulli to which I am now heavily addicted.
Loose and easy, thank you Radio Paradise.

Funny!

I wish she hadn't called it quits. I get that she wanted to be a momma and just raise her kids, but I miss this sound.

As I was listening to this I thought "Somebody probably wrote in to complain about baby-voiced women" as I've seen that elsewhere on RP, and you guys didn't let me down. Get over it! Singers have all kinds of voices and this isn't an affectation, that's just her voice! The variety of voices is one more reason that keeps me coming back to RP. Keep playin' 'em Bill!

Very nice.  A unique sound.  Good synthesizer and very even voice.

We be swayin' in the breeze!
Sing to mee Shivaree.

No I don't. This is not Duffy's or Amy Winehouses of the world. Besides, she was around WAY before that batch.

 
Say what else you will about her, I can't imagine seriously using "baby-voiced" to describe Amy Winehouse.

No, I don't hear this as "baby-voiced" at all.

Amy Winehouse wannabe far off the mark?

Where's Truman Capote?
Ambrosia Parsley is my favorite female singer thanks to RP.

I find that I often recognize songs that Bill plays as being by this artist, and I quite enjoy them.
 
Perhaps that means I should get myself one of their albums.

This song is great.  I was pretty disappointed when I downloaded a bunch of her other stuff though.  Sounding like a bratty little kid is only cute for so long....
{#Music}
mmmm... I'll put her on my radar {#Tongue}... I might even buy some of her music too {#Whipit}
This is positively awesome. The girl's got a great voice, that is for certain. And I always love a good clarinet.

...you don't hear much solo clarinet in rock music...
She is actually extremely stage-shy, and does not dress as hot for live gigs at ALL. Also a hard live act to catch. I hear she is a mom now. Bummer :)

She has the same quality to me like Holly Golightly i.e. Anyway....have to purchase this immediately. :meditate:

Of course, the room was stuffed floor to ceiling with paper balls (crunch up newspaper, toss it in, it expands, repeat). You could barely budge the door. After being exposed to that and all the other pranks, they finally went to bed and were glad it hadn't been short-sheeted.... we had laid down a thick layer of cornflakes between the bottom sheet and the mattress. :devil_pimp:

hah, that's funny :cheesygrin: love the song btw
What good is putting a tittle and a face on a song I've heard before whithout knowing who song... She has a great voice and the clarinette sound well also.
Positively yumbly! :cheers: :hungry:
pretty cool. where does RP find all these hot and talented singers? a welcome trend. don't hear the word shivaree every day either.

Gwen Steffani? just that name makes me shudder.

Edie Brickell?
Gwen Steffani?
Inspired, playing this as a follow-up to Glenn Miller. She's got that 30s-40s sound in her voice.
I can't believe it but this has really grown on me. A couple more times and I'll probably have to download it. Not exactly a strong voice, but a real catchy tune. :whistle:
Me likey.
I just like the first two notes of the chorus. I feel obsessive about the timbre and pitch of the voice. Am I sick.
Um... Edie Brickell?
same ol shit dif day
First time hearing this and I really like it. :sunny: ">
:fire:
I like this tune. On my list of "learn more" artists from RP :)

I have everything they have ever done, even some lve stuff! All remarkable, all origonal.
She sounds smart and full of attitude... a ball of trouble... I like it!
another overplayed RP theme song *rolls eyes*
OH, YEAH... I like this one.

Seconded. Of course, Bill can do whatever he wants, I'm just expressing an opinion.
Growing fonder and fonder of this wee beauty...
Like this song something different....don't think I've heard it before
Nice to hear :music: :motor:
Menace...I like it. (pimp)
The more I hear this band, the more I like them. So much of the good stuff that both Gwen Stefani and Sam Phillips are capable of rolled into one (HOT) lady's voice. Woot!

I've been trying to figure out where else I've heard Ambrosia Parsley's voice...it just came to me! She sings the week's headlines every Friday at the end of "Unfiltered" on Air America Radio. :idea:

Very nice. Bill - how about adding The Fat Lady of Limbourg from the same disc? A most excellent little ditty!
Already did. I like it, too - though the Brian Eno purists aren't too happy with it (it's an Eno cover).
Or Divinyls, as I noted elsewhere. I close my eyes, I touch myself. Hmm. 8O :oops: :umbrella.gif: I like the backing clarinet. Nice tune.
