  1. Good track.

    Her melting ‘r’s reminds me of Lili Von Shtupp from Blazing Saddles: “They always hound me, with one wequest. / Who can satisfy their lustful habits? / I’m not a wabbit…” 🙂

    The lyrics sound somewhat eerie in light of her future court-case… there’s something off-puttingly glacial about her singing in gen to my ear, like it fits the emotionally-detached temperament that leads to something like Kathy Bates in Misery!

  2. Your synopsis of Longet is insightful and interesting, although rather than saying she fits the mold as well as anyone, I would say she fit the mold better than anyone at that time. Also, in her con-twowww, I can hear her pronouncing the ‘l.’ Like you said, she was marginally talented, but the whole package of her added up to a unique magic appreciated deeply by a few. And to this day, as a side note, it is really hard to judge from known facts if she shot Spider by accident or not. Authorities made her promise not to publish her diaries so she burned them. The stories she could have told would probably have been most fascinating.
