Every week on Fred Hystere we choose a new theme to go along with our Daily Classics. This week features 4 of Fred’s favorite vocalists of all-time and we kick it all off with Miss Chateleine herself, k.d. Lang.
k.d. Lang has one of the best singing voices in the history of music. She may have a butch exterior but, man, her voice is about as feminine as you can get and has an incredibly soothing lullaby effect on even my most stressful of moments.
I’m not going to say much about k.d. in this post, because I want to make sure I leave the good stuff for my feature on her next week as my Artist Of The Day. But I will say that, out of every female artist I listen to, no one has gotten me through tough times more than she has.
Her songs bring out the romantic in me and make me yearn for moonlit walks on the beach in the French Riviera with someone I love. In fact when Lang’s album, Ingenue, came out back in the early 90s, I was in Calais, France with my family on vacation. While the rest of the family went out for breakfast, I decided to stay at home. I cranked up Ingenue while taking a shower and proceeded to slip while waltzing and singing Miss Chatelaine at the top of my lungs. Although I did hit my head pretty hard, I remember continuing to sing like a fool while in pain on the floor of the bathtub.
k.d. has a new album out and it’s absolutely wonderful. I’ll be writing about it next week, but in the meantime check out her gorgeous hit Miss Chatelaine.
