GUEST,Tunesmith You've Got to be Joking! - greatest blues singers (239* d) RE: You've Got to be Joking! - greatest blues singers 06 Oct 18

Modette, you are falling into that well know trap of knowing where a singer come from, and then hearing the accent from that location.
Because Annie Lennox comes from Scotland, there are those who WILL hear a Scottish accent.
And, this repeated over and over. Take The Beatles! When their recording were first played in the States, NOBODY thought that they were British! Same goes for Adele!

But, from the word go, people in the UK were saying that The Beatles sang in a Liverpudlian.

It took an outside set of ears ...the Americans to see the huge difference between their speaking voices and the accents on their recordings.
Again, if you played any recordings Rory Gallagher, to somebody who doesn't know his music, each and every time, he would NEVER be identified as Irish.
