I'd just like to add that I hate when somebody who was popular during my adolescence dies because it just reminds me how much I hate my stupid generation.

You pick Whitney Houston to be a symbol of stupidity for your generation? She was one of the greatest female singers of all time.

Sarah Vaughan could say more with a whisper than Whitney Houston could by holding a note for 20 lip quivering seconds.

And yet Whitney Houston was somehow also an amazing singer.

NO. IT'S ALWAYS ONE OR THE OTHER.

So we agree. She was really good at singing.

I just had this argument with flannj in the SBox as well.

I think the most obvious conclusion is that flannj and Fork are really fucking old.

Only you guys could take a thing like Whitney Houston's death and make it sad.

great vocalist = great pipes and range.

great singer = interprets the song.

Just changing dynamics in a song (or if you're Mariah Carey or Christina Aguilera, hitting 6 octaves in every song) doesn't really do anything in terms of the song itself.

It's just having something to show, not something to say.

So then, in your expert opinion, Whitney Houston did not effectively interpret the songs as they were intended to be? 

Did you feel that "The Greatest Love of All" was supposed to be interpreted differently?
Maybe more like Randy Watson?

Maybe if Whitney had been backed by Sexual Chocolate, we'd have something.

Agreed: Mariah Carey and Christina Aguilera are irritating vocal peacocks with no sense of taste or discretion.

Whitney Houston, however, was actually a legitimately great singer.

You old fuck.

Yeah but she wasted that talent on all that pop shit she sang. Not that there's anything wrong with pop music, but hers was lame.

Good idea, keep arguing about this with Fork.  He's sure to see the error of his ways and captiulate, instead of continuing to piss you guys off.

Really, it's Whitney Houston - let it go.
