A shoutout to a vocalist who is an absolute nutcase

I was thinking recently about Family songs that have really great vocal performances. Like where the vocal just carries away the song. I came up with things like, "Only A Heartcry Away," "The Light Of Your Love," "Make My Heart Your Home," "Simple Man,"...
And then there's the obvious ones like "When You Possess Me."
But I just realized the other day that "Dance Some More" is just nuts. What kind of weirdo would attempt vocals like that? You're nuts.

Hmmm...getting a little lifted up in pride eh? Alot of 'Glitch" stuff is weird too, but you don't have to post about the wrong of it and make'm feel bad.

Gee - I wonder who sings THAT song.

Good thing it's no one related to you.

I would add "Lest I Fall Away" for vocal execution, as well as "The Candle", the new version, that is.

I thought it was Sunny.
And I also think that was the vocal that nearly sent a skittish FGA into a car crash.
Remember that Grapevine un-testimony?

Oh yes, nuts in the very best possible way.
I can just imagine Sunny going in there and ripping the place up with all of her wonky ideas of things she'd like to sing just so she can smash mirrors and break glass and summon the killer whales.
I suppose it's also possible that Andrew Vee had a good idea or two. Heh.

Oooook. I didn't write it. Andrew V did. There are some strange arpegio like parts. Those are sampled from notes I gave him to work with. Again, not my invention. Great harmonies though. Awesomely in tune. Fairly imaginative...

Florie meant nuts in a good way. But, yes, I am an absolute nut case.
