Guest Blogger - Planet Mondo
Vox Not Popular
Hello bloggers and bloggettes, poor ol' Pileys unable to do any blogging at the moment, I'll let him give you all the details when he's back on the bounce. But in the meantime he's asked me to stop by as a guest blogger.
So I'm going to have a mumble, grumble and moan about certain voices that grate on me, the sort of singers that are hugely popular and sell by the sackload, but I find them about as listenable as dental drilling. People like those squiddly diddly 'Divas', Power Ballad lungbusters and X Factor autotune types but the real offenders on my list are...
Sophie Ellis Bextor - pretty as a pixie, but the bored nasal monotone drone of a pub Folk singer.
Neil Young - like Mickey Mouse hitting the helium.
Janis Joplin – as easy on the ear as a late night cat fight.
Ja Rule - the sound of a Rottweiler gargling broken bricks.
Dean Freidman - whiny whingemonger.
These are my nominations - but who would you put on a roll call of rotten singers?
If you need a break from a brainful of bad bellowing, why not pop over to my pieces of ol' puffery for some Funky nuggets, Punky rarities, Soul stompers, bootleg remixes and Youtube treats...
