I think she likes the effect that straining her voice gives.

A single flow'r he sent me, since we met./All tenderly his messenger he chose;
Deep-hearted, pure, with scented dew still wet - One perfect rose.
I knew the language of the floweret;/'My fragile leaves,' it said, 'his heart enclose.'
Love long has taken for his amulet/One perfect rose.
Why is it no one ever sent me yet/One perfect limousine, do you suppose?
Ah no, it's always just my luck to get/One perfect rose.

Re: Christina Aguilera - testing her new stretegy of zero promo.

Blank Page would be a good song for other artists who couldn't sing much but not for Xtina. The song is too small for her.

and I actually appreciate her straining voice now.

Re: Christina Aguilera - testing her new stretegy of zero promo.

I don't know why Xtine is wasting the opportunity that being a coach on The Voice provides. Your Body should be smashing because it is her best single since Dirrty. It is depressing to think about.

It's already done better than Dirrty on the charts, but you knew that.

Well maybe as he's British he's talking about Europe where Dirrty was pretty much the hottest track of the year. Your Body has been less of an event than Not Myself Tonight in Europe.

Christina's best era since Back to Basics will probably be Burlesque, which did OK at the box office and had a soundtrack which sold internationally, which you can't say for that many musical OSTs (over 1 million shipped WW, case-study contrast with Dreamgirls OST which sold about 1 million in the US and didn't chart anywhere else - so similar sales but wider overall impact for Burlesque).

In all honesty, Lotus is actually quite good. Army Of Me should be a single at some point.

Just as one example I think of this song by Kiss . Paul Stanley a male singing an F5 seemingly with little difficulty (not that he can do that nowadays, but he is 60).

http://www.youtube.com/watch?feature...uefPfpI#t=185s (I've copied url at the time of it ).

So yeah, you'd think for a female a C#5 should be a piece of cake .
