Irwin is correct! I was thinking of Stella Stevens when I planned this set. Oops!
  9:41am Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

Milla Jovovich did an album called The Divine Comedy that I really like

And Scarlett Johansson did an album of Tom Waits covers

Good Monday to you, Joe!

Avatar 9:44am Joe McG:

Are those albums good, Karen?
  9:48am Karen in Sleepy Hollow:

I honestly love the Milla, it's very Kate Bush. One of her videos is a Maya Deren tribute. Scarlett's is nice but I haven't listened to it much.

I saw Peggy Lee open for Rodney Dangerfield. She did "Babe, What Would You Say." Seemed like odd choice as it was a current hit on the rock charts.
