I always thought that Liza Minnelli was by far a better singer than her mother. She is more of an artist (when it comes to singing)than Judy was and certainly her music repertoire is far more interesting. Actually, Liza Minnelli gave me goosebumps a lot of times with some of her songs.
Thank you Liza.
That's sweet, R1, but completely wrong.
Judy had a far greater range, had superior vocal control and a repetoire that cannot be beat.
Liza has a coarser voice and struggles to control what she has left. Of course, she's now about 20 years older than her mom was when she died. Liza has impact and pizazz but her mother had everything from a whisper to a shout and everything in between.
R4, i respect your opinion and i read it very carefully. Probably Judy had a greater voice than Liza, but in my opinion Liza is more passionate and more moving that her mother on stag. Liza could make someone shiver with her performances, the way she loses control is not cheap but deep and heartfelt. Her songs also have more edge than Judie's and what also moves me is that Liza cannot realize that she is more touching than her unique mother.
Actually the song ''Somewhere over the Rainbow'' is the only song of Judy that i really like. Once or twice I downloaded a lot of her songs and i find them boring. Only ''Over The Rainbow'' does the trick to me.
On the other hand, Liza sang many songs that made the difference to me and she sang them exactly as a real artist would approach them.
"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...
