Pop Opera part 3/3 - Eskimo
I've posted a track by this artist before and had a take down notice so this one will have to be a bit cryptic. What made his debut lp stand out from the sea of other singer songwriters was the ability to take songs into unexpected places.
So what starts as a bit of melancholy starts to build with a more classical backing until at 3 1/2 mins a powerful operatic vocal kicks in and takes the song soaring to a different level
So that ends the mini theme of opera mixing with pop (and not in a Tommy type way) - I'm sure I've missed loads and any suggestions welcome but these were 3 of my favs
