The Lounge Singer

The lounge singer performed a cover of Sheryl Crow's "If It Makes You Happy."

And, indeed, when I closed my eyes I could imagine Sheryl Crow up there on stage, in person.

Sheryl Crow, if she had suddenly taken on a diet of raw sandpaper, shards of broken glass, and had mysteriously contracted a rare medical condition that doctor's refer to "chronic off-key screeching."

Then, yes, the lounge singer did sound just like Sheryl Crow.

I wish it was as good as Ashlee Simpson. Actually, I'm indirectly referring to the act that we had performing at the casino recently. Sometimes I wonder where they find the bands. They all seem to play the same songs. And most of them seem to play all those same songs not so well. The singer I wrote this about have a problem with over-emoting. Plus she was turning otherwise upbeat songs into ballads and vice versa. It was strange.
