Diana Krall Hater's Club - Page 8

post #106 of 111

If you don't like a particular music style e.g easy listening jazz and one of the most successful singers/musicians of this style, so what ? Get a life, folks. Enjoy the music that you like and don't give &§$'s behind what you don't like. I would never get the idea to start a xyz haters thread about music or musician I don't like. No one forces me to listen to anything or buy records I don't like. I have seen Dianna Krall live at the Ocean Grove Camp Great Auditorium. There was a severe thunderstorm and power outage and the entire audience was sitting in the dark before the concert started, hot summer and the only AC was the wind blowing into the hall through open doors and windows. She played/sang acoustic for parts and it was a great performance, a unique venue and a absolutely memorable experience. I don't care for her latest record though, just for the record ;).

If you don't like her style just don't listen to her ... and have I mentioned : Get a  l i f e  :D and be positive :beerchug: 

But then ... ok, I might have posted in the wrong thread.

Ok, I'm in the club. When she tries to sound 'sexy' (for lack of a better term) it makes my skin crawl. I can't listen to her. Ella, Linda, Sarah, and Billie are some of my favorites.

My two cents.

Back from the dead...

 

That's because she is sexy. Her husband, on the other hand, is the antithesis of the adjective. :smile:

I guess it's personal preference.  Take this 1955 classic, 'Cry me a river' sung by Julie London - she made this song famous:

Now, I'm not that old (yet) and the 50's look is a bit dated but dang, that voice is soothing and smooth...  :)

 

Then compare to Krall's version (and don't look at the video - just listen) and that voice doesn't do it for me.  There's something about her voice that's so mundane - plain, almost:

BUT, it's great that we all have different tastes.

 

Happy Memorial Day!

I agree about Julie London, great voice and she can sing too.

Julie's got game, no doubt. But to say someone is a "hater" of such a talent because her voice is mundane, is a bit strong.

 

Not your favorite? OK. A member of her Hater's Club? Nah.
