MARIANNE FAITHFULL - the ballad of lucy jordan ( lost hit )

Hello and welcome back... Best know for her relationship with Mick Jagger, Marianne Faithfull has a voice like no other.
Its a blend of haunting but yet raucous, due to substance abuse and laryngitis.

 I think it gives her an edge otherwise it would sound just like every other ballad, its a unique gift.

Marianne also did a slather of movies in the 60s/ 70s including "The Girl on the Motorcycle" a personal favorite of mine, not the fact that she is naked under her leather outfit but its freedom at its best ( getting away from it all) while tripping on LSD... Sadly she does a tango with a truck and I don't think she came off too good in the end.

I love this song, so smooth, dreamy but raw at the same time.

A stunning song from a multi-talented artist.
