There was no title song on Pink Floyd's 'Dark Side Of The Moon'. One track 'Brain Damage' does have the last line 'I'll see you on the dark side of the moon' but that track has no appreciable female vocals.


Well, the backup singing was just awesome on "Brain Damage," especially towards the end. And throughout the choruses the backup singers give the song a gospel choir-like feel. That I find highly appreciable. It really lent a very powerful earthy soul to the spacy psychedelia of the song.

And if the cloud bursts, thunder in your ear
You shout and no one seems to hear
(WhoaOhWhoaOhhhWHOOOAAA!!!)
And if the band you're in starts playing different tunes
(HeyHeyHEEEYYY!!!)
I'll see you on the dark side of the moon

I've always thought 'cloudbursts' is a very hard word to sing.

Also, for anyone not averse to new age, Marie-Clair D'Ubaldo is amazing in Conjure One's "Sleep," as is Israeli vocalist Chemda in "Redemption." Of course, if you're not averse to new age, you probably already know these songs fondly.

Just because you can sing a high E doesn't mean you should.

I agree with most of that, Gunga.

However, Ruslanova tended to ия1084#, when she should have taken a deep breath at the 1072;нов&# stage, and then moved up an octave, to finish the 1056;ус&# without straining her #1051;&# too much.

That's just my opinion, of course.

I wish the both of you would stop talking dirty - the hamster's filth filter is making your messages unreadable.

Here's a really beautiful and relaxing song, Ask the Mountains composed by Vangelis sung by Enya
http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=4pnwf2P5Ve0

unfortunately this is a poorly cut 3min sample of an 8 min song, and it doesn't "really" start until the 2min mark

What kind of brain-dead software can't handle cyrillic?

I've always loved Ella's clear, attractive voice. Also loved Karen Carpenter.

Rejosh,

Hi. Wow, she really was amazing.

I just watched some of the videos.

Her Ave Maria is effortless.

She is missed!

Thanks for posting, and welcome to able2know!

Karen Carpenter was a true talent, and she sang so effortless.
She also could play the drums while she sang.

Her voice will be unforgotten.

Although I like her songs very much, somehow I always get a bit
melancholic when listening to them.

I caught an old Dionne Warwick concert on PBS last week. I'd forgotten the coolness of her voice, smooth as silk, and how effortlessly she sang those Bacharach songs. Like an angel.

Oh yes. And Miss Nancy Wilson.
