You're kidding, right? Those vocals are crap. The main voice is not smooth and lovely. Just average. The backups need to pull the dying cat out of their throats. Maybe you liked the song growing up or something. That's fine. But the vocals are so-so.
R2, who are you addressing? OP and R1 are real voices that are not autotuned.
You do realize that your parents got knocked up to these songs R2 or are you a real youngster?
You'll never find me throwing shade at Ella, despite lack of smooth. I meant the first link.
There were plenty of interesting voices of yore not autotuned. Now if you like Platters song, again, that's cool. Say that. But it's not the voice that's amazing. It's the song that caught you. There are few really smooth voices out there that just slide over you.
R2 what do you think is good singing? The screeching of Christina Aguilara or Rihanna?
These are pure voices with no autotune.
My mother told me more pregnancies happened in her high school to this song.
Very "park in lover's lane and fuck" overtones.
R8 & R9, those are two of my all time favorite songs. "Eyes" is a little creepy to me though even though it's incredibly beautiful and haunting. The Skyliners lead singer was awesome, he had some soul going on in his vocals.
r2 is being satiric, right?
Why can't people sing like this anymore? Because they broke the mold with her. There never will be another Ella.
