Thinking about Jane Siberry the other day started me listening to some of the other Strange Angels I enjoy from time to time. There must be extra Liz Phairemones in the air or something.
A CD that I've compiled in various incarnations for people has for cover art the blue opera diva from a film I love, The Fifth Element. The tracks on the current mix of Strange Angels goes a little something like this:
Secret - Meryn Cadell
Hello Earth - Kate Bush
Diva Dance - Fifth Element Soundtrack
Strange Angels - Laurie Anderson
Glory Box - Portishead
Song To The Siren - This Mortal Coil
Come On Home - Everything But The Girl
De Cara A La Pared - Lhasa
Body's In Trouble - Mary Margaret O'Hara
Llorando - Rebekah Del Rio
And I'm still working on it. How do I fit Liz Phair, Sarah McLachlan, Jann Arden, Anne Sofie von Otter and a dozen others on and make it work?
Warning to men - I practically grew breasts just typing the list so beware. Should I have put that up there first?
If you like the Diva Dance from Fifth Element, you might like my review of Lucia Di Lammermoor, the opera the piece comes from.
