Francoise Hardy has such a gentle, relaxed singing style that can bring on a strong unexplainable feeling of nostalgia. THE superb Ye-Ye girl!
Eva Dahlgren has a powerful yet soothing voice that sometimes seems to spring from the depth of her soul. A great example is "Jag klaer av mig naken".
Who can possibly resist the songs and music of the talented, prolific Burt Bacharach? His tunes are lively and just put a big smile on your face! Just listen to "Italian Fuzz" from the film "After the Fox"!
This Spanish band has such a wide range in their repertoire - from ballads, to dance to pop. "Hijo de la luna" is such a beautiful ballad, that even the great Spanish Catalan operatic soprano Montserrat Caballe did a cover version of it!
The Modern Jazz Quartet
Cool and bluesy, there is not a single piece by MJQ that I don't like. This is elegant jazz! Listen to "Autumn Breeze" and you'll know what I mean.
