    I agree, but it belongs to a rando on YT, not me. My "hard work" was searching YT for the song, LOL.

    One day I'll have a turntable again, but the year will prolly turn again before that happens.

    Here's another: Sarah McLachlan from The Brothers McMullen soundtrack. I love this song. It's actually an instrumental named Weep Not for the Memories by Seamus Egan from the album When Juniper Sleeps.

    I don't like every singer & song posted here, but again and again I'm struck by the tonality of these voices, their unique timbres.

    Speaking of which, I saw Cyrille Aimee w/this same band & they killed. Her voice is unique: soprano w/a tangy bottom range, breathy, flute-like. When she sings in French (her native tongue), something extra comes out. I imagine hearing this voice on an old table radio in France in the early '30s...

    This cover of a Stephen Sondheim tune shows much of what makes her special:



    Note: Her guitarist, Adrien Moignard, is one of greatest manouche (gypsy, in the style of Django) guitarists working today.

    Regina Sosinski in Mira’s Cayman is pretty much the most beautiful voice ever recorded in a pop/rock song. Ever.

    Edit: Do not listen to this song if your cat has just died. It will destroy you.

    I always find Stevie Nicks' voice to be ooh so seductive

    I prefer her lower-energy stuff 'cos that's how I found out about her, but yes, there's a whole lotta voice there.

    Seems like this celtic music goddess isn't on this list yet, but I think she should be:
    Loreena McKennit

    (Her CDs have much better SQ than this one on the youtube.)

    I think I saw it on iTunes (not sure if they sell it in ALAC or just AAC), and then a couple of vendors have the CD up on Amazon, but the price on that is... not something I'm used to paying for a music album these days. :)

    Time for some Billie Holiday. There are so many amazing recordings but her version of this particular tune has always shown (at least to me) how utterly unique both her voice & her artistic choices were. She turns this mildly rueful little tune into a dirge of maternal sadness. To me, she sounds like a very blue oboe d'amore--and swings like crazy at a slow tempo, as usual:



    To underscore how remarkable Billie's version is, listen to this well-recorded, competent version by a different singer. There's nothing at all wrong with this version. It's obviously a more conventional reading, but then, nearly every singer sounds more "conventional" than Billie:
