Re: @Sarah Bee
Oh Lee, I was all set to justify my perfectly reasonable statements on the basis of my experience in entertainment journalism, cite any number of swiftly-Googleable respected sources who go a lot further in their endorsement, etc. But then I realised you were merely allowing me to have an opinion
>>If you had said she was one of your favourite artists of our generation, or even one of the most distinctive that would be fine.
You are too kind! I wouldn't want to push it beyond that, you might get cross.
And then you said
>>Oh, and in today's music / entertainment industry what you look like is at least as important as what you sound like, surely you are cynical enough to recognise that.
Regardless of the fact that we are talking specifically about a film theme, to be run over an opening sequence and most unlikely to feature the singer's image.
And then there was all that credibility stuff. The last bit, I was totally with you. And I couldn't hope to add anything.
