The Musings of an Eccentric Diva

Welcome to the Musings of an Eccentric Diva. My motto is: Giving Hollyweird movies the finger one movie at a time. Enter at your own risk (insert evil Vincent Price laughter here).
 

ECCENTRIC DIVO- Benny Sings

















From a musical standpoint, it takes a lot to get my attention. I’m just so underwhelmed by what’s currently being played. I recently discovered Benny Sings…. he has released 3 cd’s to date and within 2 weeks I’ve ordered one cd and I’m downloading tracks from the other two. His light, airy voice is not perfect but what he lacks vocally he makes up in lyrical content and musical composition. His songs are fresh, fun, and quirky..just the way I like my music. I have been listening to the track "Unconditional Love" from his “Champagne People” cd repeatedly..it’s an earworm for me now, just stuck in my damn head. Benny Sings is from the Netherlands (hell yeah!) and the story is he's a well-known hip hop beat maker who decided to try his hand at singing. I would best describe his music as 70’s pop with a smidgen of hip hop, which makes the sound current and new. His musical style, lyrical content and voice remind a lot of another one of my Eccentric Divos, Harry Nilsson. Michael Franks also comes into mind when I listen to him, Franks being another one of my favorite male singers. Below is the video to a track from the “Benny At Home” cd, titled “Let Me In”. The video is very cool and unusual. Benny Sings rocks!
