In the 10 years (yes 10!) that I've been doing My Music Monday, I can now say I've done my second Miley Cyrus song. I apologize to all. Or at least "most".
A few months ago when Cyrus released "Midnight Sky" it was all about Stevie Nicks' ok to sample her "Edge of Seventeen". Curious, I listened and couldn't find any sample of the song. As I had know the Nicks song for almost 40 years (think about that too!) I figured I would recognize anything taken from it. I didn't.
Granted, I'm aging - perhaps my memory is failing? Nahhhhhhh.
Perhaps it's the "ooh baby ooh said ooh" inference?
Maybe no one else heard it either, as Cyrus and Nicks have released a remix / mash-up version. Maybe it's nostalgia. Maybe it's a time when Nicks could use more than three notes. Maybe it's the mix itself (as whomever did a good job). But it certainly makes Cyrus' song better. And Cyrus does a decent job adding a layered vocal on top of the 1982 song.
I don't quite see the appeal of Cryus voice though. It's not horrible, but it's different and I'm guessing as some appeal to some folks - just not me. Though in this mix, it kind of works.
....and is it just me or does the photo below look like Dolly Parton?
