Name this tune

A few years ago I saw a music video with a female singer whose face had been blue screened into a animated scifi setting. The video was very cool despite its somewhat "Clutch Cargo" (or Johnny Chimpo if you prefer) vibe. Anybody have any idea what song it is?

Where to find intelligent American female voices?

Some colleagues want to set up a voicemail system in the US for a small tech company in Australia and we need some intelligent, welcoming American female voices that sound at ease with technical jargon to do our answering messages. Any adult age. Slight accents ok. I haven't really been impressed with the sound of professional voice models - they're a bit too slick for our image. Any other suggestions? [more inside]

So what's it LIKE to be a female blank?

Are you a female in a profession where females are rare enough that people ask you what it's "like" to be a female whatever-you-are (or just meet you with surprise because of your sex)? If so, what responses do you give to those people, and do they depend on context (stranger at a party, interviewer, etc.)?

The Bored Chorus

In the 70's (and very early 80's), a common pop music trope was to have a chorus of female vocalists who sounded, well... monotone. Or perhaps a bit bored. Clipped, a tad nasal. The most flamboyant example of this is likely's M's Pop Muzik[youtube], but there are others. Help me find more. [more inside]

Ethereal female vocalist from the mid-1980's.

Can't remember the name of a female vocalist, mid-1980's, ethereal quality to her voice, jazz - torch song kinda style. I think she had a one-word name and sharp, almost Egyptian features, light chocolate skin. Beautiful intonation but I can remember no words.

Where was this article about female jazz sisngers?

Help me find this magazine article. Sometime in the last couple of years there was a critical review of contemporary female jazz singers in which some of the more successful singers (e.g., Diana Krall I think) were unfavorably compared to lesser known singers. Article might have been in the New Yorker or the Atlantic, but I'm not sure.

UK teenage rapper

There was a single released in mid 2004 by a young white pop-act rapper, who we were told was going to be the next new female eminem. She may have sung about being a serial killer, but that didn't suit here, more like MC Britney S, then she disappeared without trace. Who was she?
