This is lovely in so many ways

I follow susannah hoffs on Twitter, cos that’s not creepy, and she’s posted a link to this cover version of a lightening seeds song. It’s just lovely. Marvellous. Definitely my favourite bangle.

    Apparently! But she’s absolutely lovely in this one. And the way her voice cracks is sublime.

    That did nothing for me. It could any American female country and western singing any old cw song.

    😱

    The bangles would have been more MOR than country though. And the lightening seeds were Brit pop through and through!!

    She always knew how to work the camera/viewer.
    Quite surprised to see her looking directly into the camera.

    I am not sure. You have no chance.

    Clearly a man with great taste.

    That song/live performance is captivating though. I’ve a real soft spot for singers whose voice has that slight imperfection on some notes and that’s such a nice song, simple, melodic, not too long. And my word, Ms Hoffs is loveliness personified in that performance. /swoon/

    Nice voice. I do like it but the song doesn't fit.

    "Hoffs founded the Bangles (originally called the Bangs)..."

    For a cover, Katie Melua singing 'Wonderful life' does things deep inside my trousers me:
