This has got to be one of the best recordings (subject to YouTube's limitations) of Joy Division live that exists:

 

Enjoying this today. 🙂

I find it interesting that Ian really isn't that great of a singer, yet he seems to be exactly what was needed.  I think he gives the rest of us who can't sing hope.

(I'll ignore the joke that, after he died, they discovered he was well hung... 😁)

The best singers aren't always the best of singers. And there's millions of people who can sing but have nothing to sing about.

The grammar pedants will thank you. ;)

"The Warmth Of The Sun" - The Beach Boys

A lot of their lyrics are corny by today's standards, but their harmony singing was top-notch by any standard.

I prefer to think of them as charming rather than corny. But yeah, those harmonies ... You always get the best harmonies from siblings/close relations.

We just learned "Fun Fun Fun" for a regular audience member. We play once a week on a deck at a marina on a lagoon across from a state park. The location brings out a lot of beach, tropical, and other "summer songs" from the snowbirds who are vacationing down here. And they are fun to play.

The song is Fun Fun Fun but with the two of us, we don't have all the harmonies so I put some of the parts on the synthesizer and included it in my backing track (I make my own backing tracks for my duo)

"Over The Rainbow" - Eva Cassidy

My wife just turned me on to her. Amazing talent on both guitar and vocals. How could she have stayed hidden from me for so long?

More Eva Cassidy

Autumn Leaves  (nice guitar work and vocals)

Ain't No Sunshine (a nice take on the Bill Withers song)

She died of cancer when she was 33 years old, but left a lot for us to enjoy. Too bad she was taken so soon, as there wold have surely been a lot more great music for the world.

A little bit on the smooth side ... I prefer Gomez's take on it (I admit to have posted this fairly recently but it's always worth another listen:D).
