Denial. It's so, so powerful.

Fits both definitions of the word SCAT, doesn't it.

Oy! I could only make it to 43 seconds. Ouch!

Ken, that was just mean. As your punishment, go to http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=30cHPFm09aY and watch the jaunty Korean singing turds.

Even I could sing better than that and I'm dead!

Thanks. That final note shattered my glasses. Too bad the first note didn't shatter my eardrums. Maybe it wouldn't have been so horrible if the band had been in the same key.
Nah.
I was reminded of Benny Hill's impression of Billy Ekstein. Hill emphasized Ekstein's outrageous vibrato, and soon the cabaret started falling down around everyone like a hotel in Haiti.
Remind me to stay away from Carnival cruises.

I've always thought that the rule of Vegas should apply here -- what happens on a cruise ship stays on the cruise ship.

there were no survivors.

Hmmm, being on a cruise ship & having to sit through that or coming down with the norovirus...tough call.

Stunning.

This made our morning.

I played it for my lovely girlfriend who was the first woman to earn an MA in choral music from USC.

I have never seen her laugh as boisterously as she did just now.

Woof!

I can envision James Cameron turning this into a movie: CYANIC... In ths version, after being forced to listen to this woman warble, the passengers mutiny and the ship goes down just off the coast of Ireland...

A friend showed me some film he took on a cruise; this gay dude sang "These Boots are made for Walkin'", we were cracking up

Speaking of Benny Hill, here's Jane Leeves: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=7HTG3B8jf5w

I still go with the American Idol. :-)

Perhaps she really was!

Ref said...

Sad. Her husband probably loves her, and she enjoys singing. Then some JERK (maybe the husband) encouraged her to do this in public. Some talents just need to stay in the shower stall.

Oh my crap. A vibrato only Mrs. Miller could love, teamed with a Mariah Carey-inspired upper range, and...that scatting. Oh my god, she's possessed by a chicken! What would Simon Cowell do?

Kathy M said...

Oh, wow. Lady, "Hooga booga booga boo" does not equal scatting. Grateful my computer has a Volume setting.

Thank you, your insights are brilliant and I couldn't stop laughing.

Great start to my day.
