I don't care if it costs me my Man Card or if she's a liberal.  Her voice pleases me.  Carry on.



*I understand this story isn't cool.

She has absolutely zero vocal range, is grating, ugly and can't sing worth a shit.

Whoops,  My older no longer around musical memories have failed me.  But it made sense for a minute.  Once again carry on.

I enjoy some of her music. Her politics, not so much.
Link Posted: 12/20/2009 7:38:28 PM EDT
I honestly couldn't name a single song of hers.
Link Posted: 12/20/2009 7:39:21 PM EDT
didnt even know she was a singer



great disappointment at lack of pictures of fucking mammies in here though.
Link Posted: 12/20/2009 7:40:12 PM EDT
Love the voice.





THe politics are typical for an entertainer so I really dont lose much sleep over them.





The song Candy verybody Wants ought to be the Obamabot national anthem.

Ugly?



Grating?

She has one of the prettiest, most soothing voices I've heard.

10,000 maniacs was an excellent album.  That first one.  I rank that right up there with Morrissey's first shit out of The Smith's.
Link Posted: 12/20/2009 7:43:26 PM EDT
She has a couple of songs I like.

P!nk has a lot more, and she's at least as big of a moonbat.

(P!nk would be much more fun in the sack, though.  She's insane far beyond just being a liberal... and crazy chicks are best in the sack.)

Grating voice? I think not.   Smokey and sexy I think so.

Exactly. She doesn't have any range to speak of but the tonal qualities of her voice are great. Soothing is the word you used and I would agree.

The live recording of Because The Night is wonderful but her voice cracks - bad - in the build up to the final chorus and it DRIVE ME NUTS! Love the song and her voice in the song but that crack makes me want to stick my head in a microwave.
Link Posted: 12/20/2009 7:48:07 PM EDT
I can only think of maybe two songs, she sounds good in those though.



Odd accent, strong voice, it works somehow.

I'm with the OP. I enjoy her style. I don't know what she looks like now, but 20 years ago I would have banged the shit out of her. She doesn't have to be a super model to be sexy.

No range? You're a boob.

In My Tribe.  good stuff.

i guess my man card would suffer if folks knew that during undergrad (1986-1991) i think i saw 10K maniacs at least 25 times.  i went to see them everywhere they played on the East Coast, and i can recall them at the Mann Music Center in PhilaPA, on campus at Colgate Univ in Hamilton NY, even the Count Basie Theatre in Red Bank NJ (go Clerks!).  hold it, let me go find the ticket stubs...

Glad I don't know anything about her politics.   ha  I like some of her music as a whole, not that she is a great singer.   It's the sound.   Willie Nelson can't sing either but his music has a good sound to it and his particular vocal quality adds to it.    Just my take.

NM did vocals for 10k Maniacs but was replaced by Mary Ramsey.



Dolores O'Riordan headed Cranberries.

You ever heard the original by the Motels? Singer does the same thing. I think NM did it to preserve the song.

A lot of the hippy-dippy 10K Maniacs stuff was really good, and some of her solo work is good. She sometimes tries to be a torch singer, though, and just cannot pull that off. When she tries it she deepens her voice, slows it down, and it comes out as  lumbering. She did a passable "Because the Night" with the 10K:


































But it seems a bit antiseptic and slight for a song about the intersection



of lust and love.













It can't compare with Patti Smith:












































The original Patti Smith version, circa 1977. You can believe in the sickness and lust in this one, though some Springsteen bombast comes through too heavily:

Patti Smith did it originally. Heard that version. Never heard The Motels version but am familiar with them.

If the song sucked it wouldn't be a big deal. It is just sort of like looking at a Ferrari that has a giant key scratch down the side - it is the only thing you can focus on.

Wow.  I'll be honest I didn't realize Because the Night was a remake.  I'd never heard of Patti Smith.  She has a real "earthy" tone that NM doesn't possess.  I think NM has a softer more feminine thing which I like.  I like them both.

Young FiveO (late 80s) thought of her as the ideal woman. Hip, beautiful, "alternative" and the voice of a goddess...



Older FiveO still likes her voice when singing and to a lesser extent the way she looks while doing it. Sadly what she has to say is enough to make me cringe...



My wife who had and has the same music tastes as I calls "Trouble Me" "our song."



So, to the OP, I say "Hell yeah!"

No offense man, but you had to get a 20 year old photo to find a pretty one.   Soothing voice I suppose.  Vocal range? about the same as mine, 2 notes.

I'm hardly a fanboy, but I liked her 10,000 Maniacs stuff and have a couple of CD's from my college days in the late 80's.  It's hard for me to get worked up about her politics.  Libtard entertainers are mostly harmless, anyway.
