    Welcome to TM, M Baker!

    I prefer KIS (Keep It Simple) to KISS. By adding the second S (Stupid) it is no longer simple.

    After listening to another singer destroy the Anthem yesterday at the Seahawks game, that trumpet solo is looking mighty fine right now..........no?

    Ann Wilson - she botched up the end quite solidly.

    As I was listening, I'm thinking, "She's gonna do it right"! Foolish thought! SMH!

    In my opinion I think singers like her are talented enough to sing it straight and have people say "WOW, that was FANTASTIC!".

    Unfortunately I think performers get caught up in the moment (how often do they have a national audience of millions listening to them?) and they lose their minds a bit. I think they try to add something "extra" but often end up missing it.

    I know what you mean BUT she was a rockandroll legend of sorts. Heart was huge back in the day.
    She's just a typical narcissus!

    SMH? please translate for me, Toby......Smack my head?
    I was getting a false sense myself almost all the way, except for the typical bottoming out on the low notes, to compensate for lack of any kind of range, then the bomb went off. At that point I said to myself, what I wouldn't give to hear any good military chorus or band right now!

    It's amazing how bad these reputably "great" singers intonation is when they have to sing acapella.
