harpmolly Kate Rusby sings Sandy Denny !!!! (195* d) RE: Kate Rusby sings Sandy Denny !!!! 08 Feb 08

Yorkie: Sheesh. Helpful much?

Sue: Sorry if I picked on you...I didn't really mean to. I had forgotten what you said earlier up the thread, which was much more reasoned. But yes, the *ducks* did elicit that reaction from me! I totally respect your opinion and am glad you're open-minded too.

I'm not one of those people (I swear) who will hear absolutely no criticism of the things or people she likes! (As I've admitted before on this very thread, even I will attest that occasionally Kate's music is a little samey, a little low-key--but again, when she hits it, I think she's incredible.) I'm really not a Kate Rusby zealot. I just don't like hearing people treat her like some sort of pop princess who doesn't deserve her success, which is the feeling I get from people often on these threads. But I don't think you were saying that at all. :)

On a related note, when I went to see the film of Sweeney Todd (one of my all-time favorite musicals), I was extremely underwhelmed by Helena Bonham-Carter's performance, which was a disappointment as I've always found her very compelling. As we were walking home I told my roommate that although I enjoyed some of the performance, I found her really too understated and didn't think she gave the role enough pizazz. My roommate's response? "You're WRONG!! She was GREAT!! I don't see how you can possibly think she wasn't AWESOME!". *facepalm* *sigh*
