She bored herself and everyone else out of existence with her boring super-soft monotonous voice.\
Actually, I''ve seen her lately on a couple of tv shows.
She''s Tylenol PM''s biggest competition.
I agree with you, r1.
I like her.
I think she''s tremendous.
Love Norah. Can''t believe how much work she''s done compared to most who hit the way she did. Lots of tracks floating around in multiple genres and wide variety of collaborators.
Ditto r6. just love Norah and she stretches herself to all types of music. Her musky voice will always be in style.
unfortuately yes, OP.\
And bitch basically stole my niche with a watered down, mall-friendly, pseudo urban take on my style!
Her first record was great!
r8, I love both Fiona and Norah. I don''t see any real similarity between the two besides the fact that they are both super talented singers/musicians/song writers who happen to be female.
Anything Norah does bores me to death. Can''t stand her.
I prefer Norah to Christina Agulera and that person with a dollar sign in her name.
All three are useless and unlistenable and unwatchable, R12.
I thought Norah Jones was one of those NPR Morning Edition people.
I like Norah Jones'' music/voice. I did find it strange when she started acting. Did she have an acting background prior to her fame? She just didn''t strike me as the singer turned actress type (i.e. Britney, Miley, Janet, etc.).
OMG - her musical arrangements are as exciting as a funeral march - blech - I loved the SNL skit they did - an ad for her new CD in which they all fell asleep a the party while playing the music LOL. It''s especially awkward and painful for me because I associate one of her songs with my old married boss whom I had a fling with and he thought this was "our song" - what an ass he was -
Someone in the UK did a wonderful, gorgeous remix of one of her songs (something Sunshine? I forget what it was called), but last I heard she had refused permission for its release because she apparently thought it wasn''t "respectful" enough of her work. BBC Radio 1 was playing it a lot because people kept requesting it.\
So she''s permanently a loser in my eyes.
I heard "Chasing Pirates" on the radio and decided to buy Norah''s new disc, "The Fall." It''s surprisingly good and much more upbeat than her old stuff.
New Delhi: Singer Norah Jones left fans spellbound with her soulful voice as she performed for the first time in the capital Tuesday.
The show was opened by singer M.Ward, who played for almost an hour, before making way for Jones.
Jones, 33 was greeted by a huge roar from fans as she appeared on the stage. Dressed in a black and white printed short dress, the singer said she was "excited to perform here".
I want her to marry Nick Jonas. Then she'd be Mrs. Norah Jones-Jonas and we'd have a Nick and Norah power couple.
Her new album Little Broken Hearts is pretty good. More indie rock, not jazzy at all.
You have to be in the mood to listen to her stuff, can be very boring otherwise...
I prefer her jazzy stuff.
Sorry for bumping this thread, but I can't start new threads.
I just wanted to ask: how did Norah Jones and Adele manage to sell so many albums? Even people like Timberlake and Beyonce can't sell that many albums any more.
[quote]You have to be in the mood to listen to her stuff, can be very boring otherwise..
Interestingly enough R40, your friends say the exact same thing about their conversations with you.
she sold albums because she swept the Grammys that year and people still fall for that bullshit
The Grammy's fawn all over young, soulful sounding women: Norah Jones, Adele, India.Arie, Sade, Tracy Chapman, Lauryn Hill, Alicia Keys, Amy Winehouse, Jill Scott, Erykah Badu have all been Grammy darlings. Meanwhile most of them produced one album or two albums and then were never heard from again.
Do you realize Sade has been around since 1984 and pretty much any album she has ever put out went Top 10 on both sides of the Atlantic? Her lack of productivity is another issue though...
Her father was a Chancre.

In 2013 Lauryn Hill entered into an agreement with Sony Worldwide Entertainment, to launch a new label, on which my new music will be released and she is working on new music.
Erykah Badu has released 6 albums (5 studio, 1 live).
In May 2013, Erykah Badu announced she is writing for her next project, but she is not placing a time constraint on it.
Jill Scott has released 7 albums (5 studio, 2 live).
In addition to continuing to record; Jill Scott also continues to do a great deal of acting.
Alicia Keys has released 7 albums (5 studio, 2 live).
Alicia Keys has won numerous awards and is listed on the Recording Industry Association of America's best-selling artists in the United States, with 15 million certified albums. She has sold over 30 million albums worldwide.

Arie's last album was released in 2013.
Tracy Chapman has releasd 8 albums
She received her 12 Grammy nomination in 2010.
Adele has released 4 albums (2 studio, 2 live).
At the 2013 Grammy Awards, Adele confirmed that she was in the very early stages of her third album. In January 2014, Adele received her tenth Grammy Award with "Skyfall" winning Best Song Written for Visual Media at the 56th Annual Grammy Awards.
Norah's lost some weight and has been looking fabulous lately.
"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...
