Out of my Pie!

I am so in love with this girl, she is youth perfected. A living poem. Just look at that outfit! And then listen to the perfect cross over of voice, music and lyrics.

Youth perfected? Good phrase!

Emerson Marks said...

Good name. I saw them supporting something one or other. She was prancing around the stage without any shoes on.

Titus said...

Now this one hasn't appeared on my updates! What's going on today?
So concur. Outfit and fringe a dream, and we love that dark stuff, don't we?

Eryl Shields said...

Deemikay ~ she is just so young, stylish and talented the phrase popped into my mind. Nietzsche's übermensch.

Emerson ~ no shoes? The strumpet!

Titus ~ we so do.

I think blogger is having a mid-life crisis: I couldn't leave comments on even my own blog the other day let alone everyone else's, couldn't copy and paste a word document into a post, and now things aren't updating.

überfrau?

(Isn't it odd that German doesn't prefix "man" to make "woman"? I'm going to have to investigate why...)

Bella said...

she's great!

savannah said...

fascinating voice, sugar! thanks! xoxo

Eryl Shields said...

Deemikay ~ frau, yes. Once you find out let me know, always interested in the whys of language. Can't think, now, of another European language that does prefix man to make woman, not that I know them all!

Bella ~ she is!

Savannah ~ you're welcome. Hope you are feeling better now btw, XXX

PI said...

No shoes eh? Maybe that's why I thought of an impassioned Sandie Shaw - prabbly before you were born but she was a one off also.
I like the non PC lyrics.

PI said...

Prabbley?

Scarlet-Blue said...

I think 'Prabbly' is a good word.
Sounds like quite a naughty song!
Sx
I was also having problems with Blogger the other day, my Blogrol wasn't updating and I thought everyone had gone quiet.

angryparsnip said...

why you sleep with one eye open. . . Fabulous !

Eryl Shields said...

Pat ~ 'Prabbly' is a great word.

I loved Sandy Shaw and remember well her winning the Eurovision Song Contest. My mother was in two minds about her shoelessness, I think she felt it was both shameless and admirably feminist.

Scarlet ~ I think so too, really quite naughty! X

Parsnip ~ ain't it so! The dangers of lust.

The World According To Me said...

Loved it! Very dramatic!

steven said...

gleaner said...

Love it and love the polka dot outfit!

Oh thank you for this intro. I love her-especially the way she moves her arms and you are so right about the combination of youth, outfit, voice and lyrics. Just great.

Eryl Shields said...

World ~ isn't it!

Steven ~ Dot Allison? I'll have to google.

Gleaner ~ I have a skirt something like it in the back of my wardrobe, now I know it's back in I'll have to drag it out.

Sarah ~ hello, thank you for coming over and leaving a comment. I'm glad you enjoyed the video, I'll need to watch it again now and check out her arm movements.

Lily Cate said...

This is so bluesy cool.
sing it, baby.

deemikay said...

Dot Allison? Haven't heard her for ages! I must rake out the one album of hers I have...

(PS My etymological discoveries have found out that Dutch also has the (wo)man thing as well - vrouwmens. The english comes from wifman, where wif meant female and man just meant a person. Now, my work here is done... ;) )

Eryl Shields said...

Lily Cate ~ so glad you like it.

Deemikay ~ I had not heard of Dot Allison so I googled, seems she was between my times. I love Massive Attack though so I should at least have heard her name, but...

Thank you for that. I wonder why it changed from wifman to woman, I like wifman? I have a teach yourself Anglo-Saxon kit arriving any day from Amazon, so perhaps I'll find out.

Kim Ayres said...

Superb! Uberfrauline (too young for frau, I think)? well discovered - thanks for sharing :)

Abraham Lincoln said...

What a song and what a singer. Thanks for sharing this with everyone. Nice post. She really knows how to get into the song.

Eryl Shields said...

Kim ~ Fraulein, of course. I wish I had been the discover but I wasn't. My part, though, was to have the foresight to have a child in 1985 who is now at the right age, and of the right taste, to do the discovering for me.

Abraham ~ she really does, she seems to really feel it, I think that's what appeals most about her. Glad you like it.

Elizabeth said...

What amazing pictures in the post below.
I'm a sucker for the elegance of decay and 'shabby-chic'
except one would not want to call it that (much too irritating)
anyway I enjoyed them very much.

Eryl Shields said...

Elizabeth ~ very glad you enjoyed the pictures. I too am a sucker for the decayed.

Crafty Green Poet said...

I do like their music....
