In Praise of Annie Lennox

This past Sunday evening, Annie Lennox received the Award of Merit at the 36th Annual American Music Awards. Ever since her days as one half of Eurythmics, I've been a fan of Annie's vocal prowess and sense of style. While channel surfing during a break in the Sunday Night Football game, I turned it on ABC and caught the tail end of Annie performing her solo hit "Why". Thanks to ETHRILLnet for posting the entire portion of the Annie Lennox segment on You Tube, which you can watch below. During Annie's performance, she demonstrated that she is still one of the premier voices in popular music. As she accepted her award after her performance, she was both humble and gracious. I didn't expect anything less.

I love Annie Lennox! The only song of hers that I have on CD is "Why?", since it is on the Boys on the Side soundtrack. What a nice surprise to hear her sing that one!

Annie Lennox is truly a first class act! I love her sultry smooth voice and her grace. She deserves much creds!

A class act. Now look what were left with.

I absolutely adore Annie. This will sound silly but when I can't sleep I listen to her and she always makes me feel better. I don't invite many women into my bed or into my head when I feel that way - but she has a heart to match her talent and inspires the heck out of me.

Mama PJ: Although I have a greatest hits CD by Eurythmics, I only have a couple of songs from Annie's solo career. Seeing her performance on the AMAs made me realize I need to add "Why", "Walking On Broken Glass", and some of her other tunes to my collection.

Fortune Cookies: I am looking forward to when she and Dave Stewart get inducted into the Rock and Roll Hall of Fame. Although it's a bit of a longshot, they deserve to be inducted.

Clnmike: Yes, the pickins are getting slim as time goes on.

Barbara: That doesn't sound silly at all. When I need a mood lifter, The Lovin' Spoonful does the trick. Because of what you said about inviting women into your bed, now I'm having visions.
