Eclectic Tastes


Remember Sinead O'Connor? (click here)
 She caused quite a stir 
when she hit the music scene back in the late 80's,early 90's.

In my mind, she dared to be different 
and stepped out of the typical female-singer mould at the time.

She appeared angry and troubled all the time and her eyes 
reflected this sadness and turmoil.

Nonetheless, I liked the passion that she displayed while singing.

    1. Me too, Gemel. There is something very haunting about her voice that stays with you. Have a great day, Gemel.

    1. I think her androgyny adds another dimension which is very compelling as well.

  3. It's a gorgeous song....

    She was diagnosed as bipolar, then abruptly ended her very short marriage, cancelled tour dates and blogged that she is not well at all. In fact I was just looking at her website yesterday and she had posted some long rambling post about Chuck Berry. Poor thing. I feel badly for her.

    1. The bipolar can probably be traced back to her tumultuous childhood which would have shook any body to the bone.
      She has done pretty well for herself in spite of her past which she couldn't control maybe.
      Thanks for dropping by Diane and it is good to meet you.

    1. I guess it all comes together to produce this voice. Thanks Pat for stopping by and have a great day.

  5. well, i think everyone has a troubled soul! it seems to me that artists merely display it more readily, and they usually benefit from that display. she released a fantastic new album earlier this year that i highly recommend. she performed here in los angeles, i did not get to go, but i read that her voice is just as powerful.

    1. Thanks for this Tony. It's good to hear she is still performing. Artists are fortunate indeed to 'release' some of that turmoil while performing.....whether through song,acting,painting or dancing. Thanks for this view.

  6. She certainly was a refreshing change from the standard pop starlets of the time. She's had a very tragic life since, though, in many ways.

    1. She is not afraid to show her feelings that is for sure, Terry.

  8. Rhonda likes Sinead O'Connor - often puts on her music when doing the housework. Personally, I find it monotonously repetitive - and Sinead O'Connor also!
