    she's not "trying" at all. look at her face and observe how she's staring off into space back to that memory, especially as she closes the song. she's reaching so deep for the feeling (not sound) it's ridiculous, and she's communicating that energy within flawlessly. not even the least bit concerned on the perfection of her vocals, and she still sounds fabulous

    it's that down-home gritty janis joplin white woman soul

    you may not be all that up on that


    "trying" would consist of her actually attempting to mimick a sound that's been accepted as "soulful", and you can tell she isn't doing that

    just raw experience

    gayle is up there doing her, not mimicking, and yes... she is soul

    now, you wanna talk about mimicking? talk about joss stone. she's trendy and so devoid of soul to me. she's all about trying to create a sound rather than really get in touch with the feeling. want proof? look at that video you posted. see how she stops in the middle of her singing, smiles, and says, "wait for it... this is my favorite part"?

    shows she's obviously not into it and only obsessed with the sound of her voice. she has a soulful sounding voice, but she's phony and isn't soul... at least, not in my opinion. i've thought that about her since day one.



    it's all relative though... people feel things differently based on their own experiences. i respect you not feeling gayle, but i don't see how one couldn't

    Ok...Joss may be high profile but her talent is more or less effortless.....she has fun with the performance ....but that lady up there..."Gayle', she doesn't even sound that soulful until she starts yelling then forcing that chorus out...eh....

    well, i don't hold stone's high profile status against her. that's not what i refer to when i say "trendy".

    ever since she arrived on the scene, she's seemed like she's already had this rehearsed and readymade image for herself. "hey, look at me! i'm a white girl who grew up listening to black music and have a somewhat 'black' voice... hear me sing with the same style as the legends!"

    could be wrong, but that's the impression i got from her at the first encounter. yes, she sounds nice, but again... it's not all about the sound.

    i don't feel joss for joss... i feel joss for her love for music she grew up liking to listen to



    gayle? she's just real and raw to me

    Ok...well one could say the same thing about Teena Marie whom i really am NOT a fan of. She learned the art through association, dick and practice....I am convinced. And you know good and well the marketers JUMP ON a white chick with a soulfull voice, it wasn't Joss' fault.

    Teena can sing yeah...but ...to me her voice is irritating....the nuonces (sp?)....its just irritating....but thats just me...kinda like Patti LaBelle's high pitch wail...its just irritating sometimes...

    Great song, but it's been owned by someone else I'm afraid:
