Elton John - for singing his classics with a voice that can't possibly compare to the voice he had when he first sang these iconic songs.

I hear he uses his voice differently because producer Thom Bell told him he wasn't singing right when he made all those classic records.

To me, Miranda Lambert is getting too repetitive with her in your face rock oriented country songs if country songs are what they are still considered. It seems like that is all that she wants to sing as if that is all that she wants to be known for now.

God bless you and her always!!!

Holly

P.S. I read the other day that she has been having issues with her throat lately. I wonder why. (sarcasm)

The only time that I listen to Miranda Lambert is when I'm forced to against my will at work, but just from that I've observed that she's too repetitive with mentioning cigarettes in her songs. I'm no fan of her by any means and I'm unfamiliar with most of her work, but even with what little that I know about her I can tell that she has at least 4 songs where she says something about cigarettes. After I found out about the 4th one I said "that's it, I'm calling her 'the cigarette girl' from now on." If she's having issues with her throat then smoking might have something to do with it.

Ha Ha Ha Ha Ha Are you SERIOUS? He's had a dozen No.1 hits in the 70s and 80s when his singing and overall style and music was totally incomparable and original. Back then when he released a song, millions loved it the very first time they heard it and by the 2nd time they knew all the words. His treasure trove of songs from that era went on to become definitive icons in the history of American pop. Back then his songs all had something that singers and songwriters would give their right arm for: Instant Likability and Fantasic hooks. Today, I wouldn't pay a quarter to hear him clear his throat. Which, by the way, is EXACTLY what he does for 2 hours at his concerts as he does a Friday the 13th hatchet job on his old songs that he is no longer fit to HUM, much less SING.

According to a couple of her more loyal fans that I have run across, they tell me that she doesn't smoke even though she is shown smoking in her videos for "The Fastest Girl In Town" and "Mama's Broken Heart". They say that the smoke was fake. Well to me, even if it was fake, what she illustrates in them videos by looking like she is smoking is an act that does a person's body absolutely no favors at all whatsoever. She obviously has yet to grasp is the fact that she made herself an example for those who are younger than her by being out there in the celebrity field at all whether she wanted to be an example or not.

God bless you always!!!

Holly

You're half-right, he had 6 # 1 songs in the 70's and none in the 80's.

When Duran Duran released "Ordinary World," they jumped the shark backwards by making a good record!

I don't think Miranda has jumped the shark. Almost all of her songs, from the day she started, have been in your face songs, apart from those two ballads she did. It's no different from all those party songs the current crop of male singers are doing. Taylor Swift, OTOH, went full pop. I don't even consider her country now. She dropped the twang in her voice. What hasn't changed is that she still does diss songs about those that supposedly wronged her.

Rod Stewart jumped the shark in the late '70s, but he redeemed himself in the '90s.

To me the singer that went downhill because she was great and she started having great songs was Shakira and when she released her album Laundry Service she was good and had good songs then as soon as Shakira released her second English album she started changing her image and my interest in her went downhill and I think when her second English album debuted Shakira adopted a more mature sound and image and it continued with the release of her album She-Wolf but I think due to her appearence in Disney's Zootopia where she provided the voice of the character Gazelle Shakira will gain a whole new image and a new fanbase

Agreed, especially after they hooked up with David Foster.

Confused

Is it me, or does it seem like the entire music industry jumped the shark in the past several years??
