Oh God yes, R&B should be soulful, stomping hard blues done by a band of guys in suits and white shirts with sunglasses who look like they got out of jail this morning. Not dreary, drippy hip-hop lite done by 3 skinny birds doing close harmony nonsense about lerrrvvve.
I make mixes, some of which are quite good. My wife and I cook things too.

I'm not a fan of this type of stuff but bloody hell what a voice. He couldn't half belt this out considering he was a chain smoker. Must've had the lungs of a hippo.

Compare this to Mariah Carey's strangely popular abomination of an attempt... why sing one perfectly good note when you can utterly destroy the tune with 10? Writers Pete Ham and Tom Evans must've been rotating rapidly underground when her absolute annihilation of it was released (or did it escape?)


Pet hate. Warbling R&B divas who all sound EXACTLY the same and can't/won't hold a note. Who the hell buys that crap?
Pet hate 2. R&B... the modern stuff not the 60's stuff.

Move over Harry Nilsson - here's Ken Lee...

Tadpole - my favourite word
