Music-on-World-off“Air Supply…?”

“Some of their lesser-known ballads are surprisingly poignant.”

– from The Wedding Date starring Dermot Mulroney and Debra Messing

Air Supply goes live in Bangkok next month. It would be fun to go see them again if I wasn’t working on the night of August 5th. I’m sharing one popular AS song and two of my favorites: She Never Heard Me Call and Don’t Be Afraid. I don’t think they often sing these songs in their concerts. I wish they did when I watched them in 2000. I can’t believe it’s been 14 years.

Women in music 60s thru the 80s – so many talents indeed. I narrowed my choices down to one from each decade, and here they are in order:

“Her Majesty of Melisma,” says The Top Tens, ‘no one can handle the treacherous key changes and time signature shifts of the Bacharach /  songbook as can classy, cool sophisticated Dionne Warwick.’

” There were a lot of great female singers of the 70’s, but as far as vocal quality, control, and crystal clarity, Agnetha Faltskog is probably the best choice.” Here she is with the hit that showcased her vocal prowess –

And “one of the world’s best-selling artists,” Gloria Estefan is also ‘the most successful crossover performer in Latin music of all time.’  On a side note I find it interesting that she has a B.A. in Psychology with a minor in French. But Words… 🙂
