Sorry. I never do this. But ...

... a couple of days ago someone posted a great video of a young woman covering Stevie Nicks’ Dreams. It was beautiful and I wanted to show my daughter, but I can’t find it. Help me out DU

4. Can we hear it without all the fricking Auto-tune?

Sorry - cranky old man here.

Stevie didn’t need it and it sounds SO MUCH BETTER without it.

13. I listened to a lot of FM back in the 70s. I'm 59, so ...

... they were right in my tween/teen wheelhouse. Preferred harder rock generally, but kind of had a crush on Stevie, and they played endlessly on FM.

Probably not fair to hold this girl to Stevie’s standards, but she’s actually very good. And she obviously loves to sing. That comes through the video for me.

That’s what I wanted to show my daughter. Find something you love to do like this girl has.

14. It is really good.

I appreciate the younger folks paying tribute to good music.

A couple of tributes I am reminded of:

15. Sorry to be "that guy" but it's a professional pet-peeve of mine.

She’s certainly cute and she has good phrasing and a cool-looking microphone but the tuning of her vocals with software after the fact is so heavy-handed that I really have no idea how good her singing is.

I spend the majority of my life inside a recording studio, so I have done as you suggest - I love making music and helping singers sound better but would be embarrassed to release something as artificial as this. If she needed that much help to be in tune, she can’t sing but if the engineer just lazily grabbed all the notes and slammed them into perfect pitch he did her no favors. I wish I could hear it prior to the mangling.

No offense intended, just an audible lament about the current state of affairs in the music world.

An analogy:

16. Don't apologize. It was your job ...

... to make things sound better to a tone deaf avg Joe like me who doesn’t have the fist clue what goes into a recording.

You have an interesting and expert take on it.

18. May I humbly offer up a different video for contrast?

There’s no artificial enhancement of this performance and I think these ladies are truly enjoying what they’re doing. At least show her this one as well, just to placate a cranky old man in Oregon:

8. She sounds a lot LIKE Stevie, but certainly not better (nor as good)

She should take the attention she gets from this and perform some original music so that we can see she's not merely an imitator of others.

10. I posted my opinion and I firmly stand by it. She has promise.

But, most certainly not comparable to Nicks. A good imitator, nonetheless.
