I made you suffer earlier this week with a female singer who spells her name differently, so now I’ll treat you to another siren with unusual spelling.
From the Ke$ha and Star Trek “Tik Tok” mashup to kd lang’s “Big Boned Gal.”
Happy Friday everyone!

I got to see kd lang perform at the Ryman the other night.
Incredible, moving, brilliant.
Believe it or not it was my first ever visit to the Ryman and what a way to experience the historical building – an angelic voice filling the room and someone I love sitting next to me – a perfect night.
I’ve been a fan of kd since her first album (yes I had “Angel With A Lariat” on vinyl) and her late night visits to Letterman’s set.
She performed lots of stuff from her new CD “Watershed”; you can hear a few of those tunes on her MySpace page.
She charmed her audience with a bit of banter and some “dance moves” and her banjo.
The showstopper was her version of Leonard Cohen’s “Hallelujah”. The emotion conveyed by her powerful voice raised the Ryman roof and lifted her audience to its feet for an extended standing ovation once the rendition was finished. It moved me to tears.
This version isn’t from the Ryman, but it’s still an impressive showing from 2007.
It’s Feel Good Friday and I’ve got some retro kd lang for everyone headed to the Ryman in Nashville to see the Canadian songbird tonight.
Newscoma has another giveaway going on over at her new digs.
She’s handing out a pair of tickets to see kd lang perform at the Ryman in Nashville later this month.
To win, you just have to leave a comment on her post. The winner will be randomly drawn from all those who have put a “how do you do” on her blog with the winner announced on Oct. 15.
Go on over there and good luck.
