This week: Iconic Voices
There are a few people possessed with a voice that the phrase “could listen to them sing the phonebook” rings true, and we’ve collected some of the standouts for this week’s vocal-focused roundup.
We’ve got four fresh playlists chock-full of favourites from the prized pipes of Frank Sinatra, Barbra Streisand, Aretha Franklin, and Joni Mitchell, timeless voices to soothe all ages.
Starting off with Sinatra at His Best, spanning ol’ Blue Eyes’s career from his bobbysoxer beginnings to his elder statesman status; then we’ve got Barbra Streisand at Her Best, with show tunes to movie soundtracks to beloved album cuts (find them both in Genres / Pop); Aretha Franklin – Queen of Soul highlights her powerhouse vocals not only in soul, but gospel and R&B as well (and you can find that in Genres / Urban); while over in Genres / Country & Folk you can enjoy Joni Mitchell’s Finest Songs; dulcet tones from one of the most influential artists of all time.
Sing along at your own risk; remember the neighbours are almost certainly in.
