    May be useful if you ever find yourself needing to sing an indie cover.

  2. That parody of 'hip singing' is scary in that it's so accurate.
    Then again, if it's not a parody, that's scary too.

    OH MY GOD I was just talking about the phantom short-I-sound insertion after the U thing a couple days ago, and the person I was talking to could not grasp what I meant!!!! The "u-iiii-s" sound to the word "us" absolutely drives me batpoopie insane!

    This is what happens when you cut music programs from schools.

    I'm not sure if she is joking or not. She does have a really good voice, though.

    That's why this is so good - she actually can sing, uses some really classic material as examples, and manages to seem totally serious, like she means all of it.

    Glasses? Aren't those scuba goggles?
    I like the "Meow" parts of the bloopers...that's the best part of the whole video.

    She clearly knows how to sing well, as well as do sarcasm. :laugh:
    I'm not too dialed in to the references .. (old guy) but it seems like she is nodding at artists like The Neighborhood/Sweater Weather and Lorde, and those that are stylistically related.
