Looks like it's difficult to answer the Nico question. I figured if you say you like "a lot of" Nico's stuff, it would be easy to answer which song you like the best in her albums you obviously listened to ("a lot of Nico's stuff").

You should check Steve Lawrence-Eydie Gorme duets. &/ or Steve solo. He's among favorite male singing & speaking voices (he & Eydie his wife appeared frequently in U.S. TV game "What's My Line?"). Successful singer by his lonesome like Eydie. But the duets better. Check 'em out (or don't, am used to people not checking my music recommendations by now, hence quit posting youtube links to songs/ albums).

Which Nico song you like the best in her albums?
I'm not sure what takes long to answer this easy question.

Paging JK.

Sorry, RR, I must have been distracted somewhere along the line. Grin

I would say it's "Valley Of The Kings" from The End.... It's just her voice and her harmonium--the bare essentials. Chills-down-the-spinesville...

This is amazing!  Shocked It reminds me of the slowed-down versions of stuff Vanilla Fudge used to do in the late '60s.

Old Chipmunks songs played at 16 rpm--whatever next?! Grin

Leading on from the above splendid Stereolab album--which seems to have influenced The High Llamas and not the other way round--I came across the band Schema, which featured Stereolab's second vocalist Mary Hansen. This is "Echolalia... Curvilinear" from their self-titled mini-album from 2000. Tragically, Ms. Hansen was killed in a traffic accident aged 36.

Holiday Traditions channel on Sirius XM. A few days ago I heard Rosemary Clooney for the first time. Her voice is much deeper than I expected! I remember Brian mentioning something in "I Am Brian Wilson" about Clooney's song "Tenderly". Ah, just found the quote. He says, "I feel like I learned to sing from that song".

As of now Merry Christmas Darling is my favorite non religious Christmas song.
What a voice Karen Carpenter had.

Came here specifically to post the same exact thing, ChewBecca (great name, by the way) and NOLA.  I've always been a huge fan of their Christmas album.

White Stripes - Icky Thump
Logged

A band called The Beach Boys are mostly going to be a fun in the sun-themed group. And that has, is, and will always be just as it should. There needs to be ONE classic band that isn't a pack of endless "artistic" moan. All people wanna do is make The Beach Boys into another Beatles they are less tired of.
And, for anyone who has actually experienced them, surfing and cars carry PLENTY of emotion and life experience. They can carry as much metaphor as any Van Dyke Parks clever epistle.
