Who do you like more: Billie Holiday or Dinah Washington? by ladykhalia Q: Billie Holiday or Dinah Washington? Some may look at this question and say there is no comparison but I do feel the two women can be compared. Billie Holiday provides much admiration for her delivery yet a narrow range but Dinah Washington had such a sultry voice. What do you think?

A: Dinah Washington was a great singer with perfect pitch, but Billie Holiday was incomparable.

Does anyone know where I can get Billie Holiday's "The very thought of you" as a free mp3 download? by blackivory_10 Q: I love that song, but every where I go, they cheat me out with fake downloads, it's not the whole song, or it's not even Billie Holiday singing it. I've gone to everywhere but Limewire, but I can't download any kind of software without my dad getting pissed. Can someone help me?

A: From itunes but that's not for free.

What are others perspectives about Billie Holiday? by Tarena Q: What did others think of her as a musician? What did they have to say about her drug problem? What do you think her biggest contribution was? What other problems has made billie holiday a negative or positive role model in the world today ? [Any other information you can provide will be helpful]

A: I don't think anybody has something bad to say of her as a musician. I never heard of a jazz musician or singer who spoke of her in an ill manner. She will always be Lady Day. Her voice is soulful. And she puts all feelings into the song, that it's almost like poetry, you know? Her drug problem was her biggest downfall, imho. She may have gone through poverty and abuse but I think she was capable of surviving through that, was very capable, that's why she sings the way she sings. If she just stayed off the drugs I think she would've had a long career. I guess drugs were her form of escape. Getting shoved into the limelight wasn't always a happy treat either. I think Strange Fruit would always be the one thing most popularly linked to her and I agree. It was just a poem, but when she turned it into a song, it turned into this vulnerable, chilling statement about life and cruelty and race and the world in general. The depth of emotions and the soulful interpretation is a big thing in the world of jazz. For me the only negative thing is the drugs. I'll never get that. But she wasn't the first to do it, nor was she the most popular, so I don't anyone would be influenced by her to do that kind of thing. I guess it's also because she did so many good things that that's what you want to focus and remember - that singing, haunting voice. I think if you set aside the drug problem, how she arose and fought poverty and abuse is a great example to women everywhere.

How was Billie Holiday's music blues related? by L(ay)la Q: I'm doing a music project on blues singers and i'm doing billie holiday. I can;t really find anything on how some of her music is blues. thank you for the help.

A: Kman is correct, though she (and Count Bassie) did do some blues numbers. Try "Billie's Blues" as a start, and you may have trouble digging up other 'blues' tunes unless you really know the form. Your teacher probably just wants a cross-section of her big tunes and a little bit about her life and career.

What Kind Of Pictures Would You Put On A Billie Holiday Collage? by ✗✗✗ Serabi ✗✗✗ Q: I have a Collage due on Billie Holiday tomorrow and I already have some pictures (microphone, pills, music notes, and a symbol for strength) but I need advice as to what else I could put on it? Thanks You're not supposed to put the person you're doing the assignment on, ON the project.

A: You should try to make it decorated. Put some music notes. And then put pictured of him on the paper and then around there out music notes and the microphones and the pills. Try to make it as decorated as possible, and maybe put a frame around the pictures so it looks prettier and more organized. Try making it look, Dazzling lol.

What kind of clothes did Billie Holiday wear? by Miss_Bre95 Q: I have this project where I have to dress up like the person. I have Billie Holiday. I dont know what to wear.

A: Billie Holiday's career had two parts. And she kind of had a different style in her comeback then she had when she first came on the jazz music scene. She was elegant and wore night gowns with her hair up and flowers in her hair during the first part of her career. She also sometimes wore nice hats. But during her later life and career she had a more casual style. I suggest that if you want to capture what most people think of as her look or style is to take a look at her album covers; http://www.amazon.com/Lady-Day-Best-Billie-Holiday/dp/B00005Q45Y/?tag=squeezemylemon-20 She wore strapless dresses with her hair up as shown here; http://www.amazon.com/Lady-Satin-Billie-Holiday/dp/B000002AH9/?tag=squeezemylemon-20 http://www.amazon.com/Billie-Holiday-Greatest-Hits-Sony/dp/B00000FC7M/?tag=squeezemylemon-20 http://www.amazon.com/Billie-Holiday/e/B000APYCK4/?tag=squeezemylemon-20
