Laura Nyro - Midnite Blue
I miss Laura Nyro - a musical genius/muse - truly the voice of an angel. Only Joni Mitchell can compare as lyricist and musician. While Laura was living with David Geffen, he said that he had never met a more talented person in his lifetime. She could walk to the window and start singing a song, just like that. Effortless. I think I have all the albums she ever made. Laura started singing DooWop on the streets of New York City and her career ended many years ago when she died from ovarian cancer. Listen to the lyrics of this song. It might take a few seconds to get started so keep listening. It's not her best song, but then again, I haven't ever heard one of her songs that I didn't like.
