Break It To Me Gently.

bl930  Forgive me for mentioning Brenda Lee as often as I do, but I keep hearing these tunes and remembering them from some dim corner and thinking (now), oh my god, what a voice! and what a delivery! and this is not just some singer, who has spent her whole life onstage trying to make it, but a person with a depth of feeling that comes from another place entirely.

Break It To Me Gently

She’s rock and roll and Christmas trees and number one hits and all the rest, but everything about her transcends it all and delivers pure emotion to each listener. It doesn’t matter what the lyrics are. If I were from Romania or Chile or China, it would be the same. She would just smack me right in the kisser and deep in my heart. It’s like a miracle. Her singing is a lifeline for bruised souls and those who feel abandoned by the world and everyone in it.


About Ted Ringer

I am a writer, artist, and listener. Great music is everywhere and has no limits. Some of it is well-orchestrated and some is short and sweet. It can spring out of a moment of deep feeling or result from long periods of development. Music is communication, inspiration, and a million other things. This blog wants to share the wealth and keep toes tapping.
