I just listened to her latest, "Little Broken Hearts," and god help me I like it. Fuck, will I soon be hoarding cats, telling anyone who will listen about the miracle of hemp products and passing out vegan literature in front of my local Whole Foods? Hold me Datalounge, I'm scared!
OP, you are trying far too hard.
Danger Mouse produced the new album. I've only heard a few of the songs, but they're very different from what Snorah has done in the past.
Also, Norah Jones fans aren't hippies and cat ladies, they're mostly yuppies and old white people.
I love Norah, and have from the first album.
The first cd was great. People make fun of her because they are ashamed of liking beautiful things - that was beautiful music in ugly times.
R3 - yes, and a lot of people said her music was boring. I didn't think so.
I didn't get her appeal until I heard her on the Danger Mouse produced album Rome.
Lots of people were shocked to hear she's the daughter of the late Ravi Shankar, the famous Indian sitarist!
Even those spiritual musicians get horny on the road. IIRC, hete mom is from Texas and that's where she met Ravi while he was on tour.
I'm not sure if Norah is the product of a one night stand or an ongoing affair.
R20 Norah's mom was Sue Jones. They had an affair of some length, longer than a one night stand.
[quote]IIRC, hete mom is from Texas and that's where she met Ravi while he was on tour.
No, her mother worked for a music promoter in NYC and it was through that connection that she met Ravi.
Ravi's affair with Sue lasted for years, although he was still married to his first wife during that time and became involved with the woman who eventually became his second wife, Sukanya, during that period as well. He discussed the situation a little in his autobiography - apparently after years of waffling from him Sue got fed up and gave him an ultimatum. Of the three women, he chose her, but not for long, and after that final breakup Sue changed Norah's name (originally Geetali Shankar) and moved back to Texas, where she was from.
I don't think I've ever seen a photo of Sue. Norah has apparently taken great pains to protect her privacy.
My favorite song last year was After The Fall. It had a really vibey, retro sound, almost like surfer music in the 60's.
Hell, I'm an elder and never heard of this woman.
Nora is really attractive, I wish she was at least bar-sexual..... Sigh.
Norah is gorgeous!

Why on earth would you brag about that? Her debut album sold more than 10 million copies and won eight Grammy awards. It's not like she's some nobody.
her debut was a classic
I don't know the newer stuff
don't know why people make fun of her when there so much more that is worse
I think she is talented, beautiful, and creative. She doesn't sound like everyone else, good for her! Her works are mellow, good for her! Why all the hate - if you don't like it don't listen.
Her newer stuff is not as snoozy as her earlier output.
I generally like her old stuff better than the new.
She has quite a range, from country to jazz to pop.
"Oh my God. I'm back. I'm home. All the time, it was... We finally really did it ... You Maniacs! You blew it up! Ah, damn you! God damn you all to hell!"
We are switching to the new platform for The DataLounge this weekend. All of our mobile users have been using it for over a week and all first time users have been using it for about a month - which adds up to well over one million users. So we're ready to end this phase of the testing and move everybody to the new site. (more)
And yes, we've changed the look and some of how it operates.
Yes, we know you just *hate* it in well in advance.
Yes, we know we suck.
Yes, we are the biggest suckers that ever sucked.
But it was time for a change and with the huge shift to mobile it was long overdue. We've taken this opportunity not only to update the look but also make major changes under the hood (or "bonnet" if you're either British or pretentious or both). And we have to prepare for 2016 - a presidential election year where we can normally expect to see a 60% jump in traffic (yes, we've seen 5 presidential elections so far…Christ we're old).
The site has a bunch - nay, plethora - of new features which will make the site more usable: better search, the ability to ignore posters and threads, see link previews, to pick up a thread where you left off, spam and malware filtering and more.
If you want you can go explore and see for yourself, Click here.
And while running the tests we've noticed two interesting reactions to the new system - people are spending more time on the site and more people that come stay around longer and look at more stuff. Both good things. Yay!
Possibly we've not slain all the dragons and there will be issues that come up during the switchover. There's a help button in the lower right hand corner of the page which you can use to send us bug reports.
Please include as much information about the hardware (PC, Mac, Tablet, Phone etc), operating system (Windows, Mac OS, Android, iOS etc) and browser (Chrome, Safari, Opera, Internet Explorer etc) that you are using as possible to help us replicate and fix the problem.
Please note that complaints about colors, fonts, icons and the like are not "bugs" - they are design choices that we've made and we expect one or two cases of world-class bitching. But they won't actually cause headaches, scurvy, heart attacks, Restless Leg Syndrome, Morgellon's Disease or the vapors (but have your smelling salts at hand just in case).
Talking to DataLounge servers. Please wait a moment...
