A Christmas Song from The Iron Lung

I still have a love for classic Christmas music. When I refer to "classic" I mean, people like Bing Crosby, Louis Armstrong, and Frank Sinatra singing Christmas music. They sung melodies in a simple fashion and articulated words very well. Sometimes I think about writing a letter to the most sterile singers on earth like Celine Dion, Josh Grobin, Beyonce (not really sterile but really wack), and Mariah Carey and ask them why can't they just sing like the artists of old. Why can't they just chill on the vibratto and trills they overdo when singing and just sing the dam song without showing off their powermoves. But then again, who fuckin' cares? Billions of people listen to their shit music (my mom unfortunately, hehe). They're not going to change their style if they're making serious money what they're doing. Oh well, at least we have youtube. Take it away, old blue eyes.

good one mane!
i think that if those singers you mention. would still sound like a turd dropping in the toilet, even if they left the trills and power vocals out of it. lets face it they lack soul and beside that their voice in general (style or character if you will ) don't have "it" or a "voice" look at someone like pops! man! when he talks he swings!
