More lost without you, and so it goes

Janelle, whoooo?!

"I am not a special person. I am a regular person who does special things."

"There's a category for me. I like to be referred to as a good singer of good songs in good taste."

"As soon as I hear an arrangement, I get ideas, kind of like blowing a horn. I guess I never sing a tune the same way twice..."

"There are notes between notes, you know."

"I dig Doris Day!"

It's Consecutive Diva Season again, folks - Scott Walker's death rather overshadowed the fact it would have been Queen Aretha's 77th on Monday, yesterday we had Miss Ross a-blowing out 75 candles, and today (as well as being the 120th anniversary of the birth of Miss Gloria Swanson) would have been "Sassy" Sarah Vaughan's 95th birthday!

To celebrate, here is "The Divine One" herself, with her inimitable version of a cabaret standard...

We adore her.

Sarah Lois Vaughan (27th March 1924 – 3rd April 1990)


  1. Glorious voice. I'm quite lucky to have been able to see her once.

  2. don't hate me, but I often get sarah and ella confused when they sing.

    1. There were occasional similarities in their style, but their voices were distinct... Jx

  3. I hope I get to party like Diana Ross - it sounded like a blast!

    1. My invitation was lost in the post... Jx

  4. Good choice to show off her voice - Love it
