No-one says it like Billie

 

The pictures are a bit weird but close your eyes and listen.

Great performance! I think the photos are good too, without all the clever distorting graphics!

Z said...

Dearest Pat. Hugs to you xxx

rashbre said...

Yes - great singing but an unexpectedly woozy video.

Granny Annie said...

Sad song, beautiful voice. The pictures were neat just not the wavy ones. Looked like she adored her best friend dog:)

What a voice.
It looks like some one got a new program for the computer and wanted to play with it.

cheers, parsnip

LOVE Billie and I LOVE that song....! Perfect for her, isn't it? I can't imagine why the people thought doing all those crazy things to the pictures was going to be an enhancement to Billie Holiday's singing---it is so pure and real.
Thanks, my dear Pat....This is such a wonderful moment in time. So Much Feeling.....!
Sending You Hugs, My Dear....

This proves my point perfectly... music today is not as good as it used to be!

Pat said...

Joey: I suppose it was deliberate?

Z: thank you:)

Rashbre: it was the only one that fitted my dashboard.

Granny Annie: it seemed to be the same dog. At least she had one faithful friend.

Map: knew you'd appreciate it.

Parsnip: she doesn't really need any gimmicks.

Naomi: it takes one to know one. The same can be said of your voice - especially 'My Father's House.'

Chef: I knew if I hung on the day would get better:)

I find Billie Holiday almost too painful to listen to, almost like prying into somebody's private tragedy. Tough lives some of the great jazz artists had.

Scarlet Blue said...

I agree with Mr Files. Mr Maps is also playing some fine tunes on his blog.

Pat said...

Gadjo: but think how even more awful it would have been for her if she hadn't been able to give voice to her demons.

Scarlet: thanks for the heads up:)

Ohh, divine! Today, we have the kind of weather that goes just perfectly with this song.

Here's a song I listen to some Sunday mornings: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=f2eusOFmOg8

I promise it will make you laugh.

GG: that song is neat.
