I've only Lady in Satin, and much of what has already been said about her, I agree with. Though I enjoy her music, it can become a bit bleak. I, mistakenly came across this album after a breakup and it was devastatingly healing, but I could not listen to it without breaking down.

im not sure what you mean by bleak, but oh my goodness i know know what you mean about the break up thing. Same with being in a relationship actually, the music just kinda pulls at what needs to be touched ya know? (that sounds dirty but its not. for shame!)

Perhaps I used the wrong word, but it can become really dark. The odd thing is ... It's not the instrumentation, but her voice. With it, comes this heavy air of black feelings. Those low notes crush me.

There's definitely a very dark and haunting melancholic tone in a lot of what Billy sings.The songStrange Fruit being a prime example.

Beautiful track. Thanks for that. Though I enjoy her, I can't listen to too much.

oh that is why i love her so! only a few people can do that (or could in her case). If i had that talent i just know i would abuse it! if something can make me cry, laugh aloud, or put shivers down my spine then i love it. It takes serious talent to do that! Strange fruit is one of the first songs i heard and it definitely got me hooked fast.

That's what Billie said about heroin and alcohol.
Seriously, I believe her addictions influenced her sound and style (both of which I love) - of course she had great natural abilities as well. A truly captivating artist and rare talent who was the best of her time.

I'd never really looked into her biography and had no idea she had any addictions (though i should have assumed.. looking at the time period etc) hmm. Im gonna go google it now.
