New Lisa Stansfield!

Lisa Stansfield - The MomentLisa Stansfield - “The Moment”
This entry is a bit biased because I love love love Lisa Stansfield… but! She has a new album out and it’s freakin’ amazing. That smooth sultry soulful voice, check. Groovilicious beats, check. Thoughtful lyrics about heartache, check. Right now it’s an import only, but it’s so good. I have been listening to it on repeat all morning long!

Favorite tracks:
Easier
When Love Breaks Down
If I Hadn’t Got You

Go Annie! Go Annie! Go Annie!

I think that I’ve said this before. However, it bears repeating. Annie Lennox is a goddess. Courtland and I went and saw her play last night at the Shoreline Amphitheatre. She was AMAZING. Her voice was perfect. Live, she has does these little intonations and flourishes that don’t appear on her records. It was such an amazing performance. I waited 20 years, but I finally got to see her sing Sweet Dreams (Are Made Of This). She did a lot from Diva, Little Bird has never really been one of my favorite songs of hers. I mean, it’s OK, but last night changed my opinion on it forever. I’ve seen lots of pre-recorded performances of hers but live her voice resonates emotion in tidal waves. She did a really rocked up version of Missionary Man(from Revenge), followed by I Need A Man, (from Savage). And when I say really rocked up, now, Missionary Man is not a lie down in the sheets balad….I mean a REALLY rocked up version. As Court put it, you just felt her go into “Rocker Chick” mode and WOW! She did do Pavement Cracks from her latest album (Bare) but not a whole lot else from it.

Oh, and Sting played too. I’ve seen him 4 times now, it was his 53rd birthday. I hope he had a good one, but he was (and has been in my opinion of the last 2-3 albums of his) way off his game.

Can you tell I really liked seeing/hearing Annie Lennox?? OMFG.

A Good Time Was Had By All

Last night Courtland, Steve and I went to go see Cyndi Lauper at the Lodge at Regency Center. The place is really pretty nifty. The concert was on the third floor in a ballroom that sat about 300 people. Extremely high cielings, dark wood and red velevet lined walls, deco light fixtures, very intimate. It was great. Cyndi’s voice was amazing. And, she’s so tiny! You could really see how small she was when she would do her little cha-cha down the isle of the audience and there are people who were taller than she was while seated. It was a little show promoting her new album and it sounds fantastic.
