There are certain singers, who bring an unusual element to the musical world. They are eccentric, out of the ordinary, and force us to dive further into a deeper perspective. Initially, their sound may not be as catching or moving for the masses of listeners. Yet, through consistent repetition, their sound becomes appreciated. Its like adjusting to that fine taste of wine, which has been treasured and savored for such a long time. And yet, no matter the amount of repetition for its taste, there is still an aura of mystery for its delight. Their voices are a silent lead into imagination and childhood fables. What’s even more holistic is how they are able to bring those childhood stories into the adult world. Bringing them into the present world, in order for adults to grapple more with the current circumstances of the times.
One of the most artistic characteristics of such singers is their ability to bring vigilance to truth. Oftentimes, those who have that unique sound, are able to convey truth, in a way that is natural. Meaning that the audacity of truth becomes a daily performance and ritual. Its like drinking water. Natural, flowing, and free. That’s how enriching it becomes. So, when certain singers are able to convey truth’s comfort, in a way that is inviting, its easier for the audience to connect with the serenity of such voices.
In the world of British Pop (through Scottish heritage), that was none other than the one and only. . .
In a previous piece, I had written about the nature of “red-haired women.” They are those red-spirited women, who wear the very essence of truth. Telling the world they have no shame in doing so. For this to take place, a person must move through that personal journey, within themselves. Music 🎶🎶🎶 has that factor. Kristy MacColl conveyed that magic. The way she sang and performed it, within her music 🎶🎶🎶 made a person want to go to the magical world of truth. We are often told how “ugly” truth is. Yet, through this Scottish, England-born artist, truth takes on a much prettier touch. Its not always “unpleasant,” as we would believe it to be.
There were certain songs from her, which tickled our imagination. They were diverse and versatile, in how they were able to reflect honesty in the fictional realm; thus, making it a reality.
He’s On the Beach. A New England. They Don’t Know. In These Shoes. Fairytale Of New York. Walking Down Madison (UK Version).
Kirsty MacColl was truly a mythical woman. She had no problem in bringing fantasy into the context of reality. Her music spoke to this. Whether it be conveyed in a bland, and simple text, or should it be discussed in songs such as “Fairytale Of New York.” There was nothing, which could hinder her intertwining of fantasy’s truth, in reality’s timing. Certain things were meant to display the realm of love and humanity’s grappling with the truth of love. The songs she sang told stories. Furthermore, these stories felt like little lullabies, or narratives for life’s lessons. The way she performed them made am individual feel they were natural sonnets, given out as daily medicine for the masses. Every day listeners receive that daily sweetening for the tenderness of time and wellness’s fruition.

Another particular vision, relates to such Spirits and their ability to direct us to things, which have been left, uncompleted. Ah! There is another chapter we must venture to. Its that simple, is it not? Maybe. Yet, for some of us adventurous Spirits, our journeys to completion require a harsher path to follow. That’s alright.

If you were lost and couldn’t find your way, the gentility of her voice, made you want to get back on the right path. Of course, singers and musicians get lost, too. So, its not uncommon for them to feel lost and confused, while venturing to a sacred spacing for restoration of their musicianship. Travel has a way of doing that. Furthermore, it also has a way of re-shifting our perspective on life, and our current journey. Music is a nourishing tool of abundance.

We will ask ourselves the question of why? Why do the angelic ones have to always go? And leave us so young? Well, maybe Heaven misses their gentility. Perhaps, they are called home to remind the world, of there being another way. Another way of living, and another way to be. That’s one of the enchantments of musical arenas, when they are moved in wellness’s enchantment.

When people are programmed to believe that the only acceptable reality, is a repressive one, its difficult to accept another way; especially, if it presents itself as prettier and more humane. With the gentility of her timber, surely and slowly, she guides us back to a more holistic form of good livin.’ The videos associated with her songs present the fantasy and mythology, that many adults secretly wish they could enjoy.
