Wow-ful Women Wednesdays

I have had the strangest dreams lately. Night after night after night. Dreams that make no sense, dreams about what I'm puzzling over during the day, dreams that would be fun to be true....too many dreams. Still, in light of that theme, and in light of the fact that I felt like a lighthearted something today, I picked The Cranberries for our Wow-ful Women Wednesday.

Now what I found striking about this version is that I think she may actually be flat for the entire first verse and no one cares a lick. They scream like she is perfect, which she sort of is in a weird vocal way. I love that she is flat because when I fall off pitch I always fall flat, never sharp. It is rather endearing, I'm sure.

Without further ado, Dreams.

I assure you Barbara no one on our team sings even close to this flat. That's unreal. Lesson - talent does not equal a record contract.

I am glad to know that you have never noticed some of the striking flatness that has proceeded from my mouth on some nights. Perhaps I learn to never be flat again on the 9th and 10th. Flat no more! That will be my motto for 2009 :-)

OK so maybe she's a tad flat but gotta give her marks for effort and overall enthusiasm! oh the cranberries! memories!

Wow, that is some flat, as my Fundy Shore relatives would say! Before I listened to it I was thinking that she strikes me as being a bit flat in her studio cuts as well, but they are totally on pitch compared to that. Perhaps there was some mixup with the charts... ;-)

Anyway, thanks for the link regardless...I actually really like that song, although I think I might not load that particular version on to my iPod!

The poor dear couldn't find a shirt or shawl to wear I guess??? Yes, she is definately off key. That's on the 'You've Got Mail' movie I remember.
