For no good reason, here is the official video for Lana Del Rey's cover of "Blue Velvet":
Certainly different from the Bobbi Vinton version!! Thanks for sharing.....
I think the sultriness of her voice is more like velvet, but Vinton's version sets the standard.
A lot of her songs are very sensual, and some are very experimental. She is one of the most "advance guard" singer/songwriters on the scene today. She reminds me of Yoko Ono, except with more musical ability.
Interesting voice, and interesting video.
A young female artist that I truly admire is Jane Monheit. I saw her in concert several years ago and her voice and talent just amazed me.
Thanks. I hadn't heard of her before, but I'm putting "Moon River" and "Over the Rainbow" on my iPod wish-list.
