I have an acquaintance who is friends with Lynda Carter. Honestly, how glamorous. And it doesn't help my jealousy issues to hear that she's warm and fabulous and smart, even though we already knew that. After all, she said, "She's the Anti Wonder Woman" about Sarah Palin. We love her.
So anyway! A few weeks ago, I accosted my friend: Ooh, I bet you're going to Wonder Woman's house for Thanksgiving, aren't you? He laughed admitted it was all true! And then he told Lynda Carter and she laughed and graciously gave him the signed copy of her new CD, shown above, to pass along to me.
How is it? Well, to be honest, it's an album of "standards," and that's not exactly my area of expertise or my cup of tea. I know, I know, revoke my gay card, etc. Ms. Carter has a strong, clear, slightly sweet voice; there's certainly no cheating or auto-tuning here; she's the real thing. I liked her version of "At Last" a lot, but her rendition of "Cry Me a River" didn't send chills up my spine like Julie London's. Her voice has a slightly "cute" quality which helps some songs and hinders others. But like I said: what do I know? I think if you are into this kind of thing, you'll love this CD. It's certainly a step way above things like Rod Stewart doing standards or celebs who think they can sing but really can't.
The point of this story is that Lynda Carter is very talented and very nice, so nobody should ever say anything bad about her ever, the end.
