@Shelia it has gotten to the point where I only listen to the BBC and the CBC radio Australia and a few other international stations, although if trump and his minions have their way it could be jammed somehow
  3:38pm P-90:

Sure, Barry White, Sinatra, etc. can be described as “sultry.” “Sultry” is not synonymous with “breathy” or “moany”, it’s more about a mood.
  3:38pm justinseeling:

  3:43pm daisy:

Serge Gainsbourg n Scott Walker are sultry as heck
Avatar 3:44pm djsheilab:

Thanks gang! And if you have specific song titles that would be fab.
  3:44pm P-90:

General definition of “sultry”:

a. Very humid and hot: sultry July weather.
b. Extremely hot; torrid: the sultry sands of the desert.
a. Expressing sexual desire: a sultry look.
b. Arousing sexual desire: a sultry dance.

—of course, when one is using the word to describe any kind of art or performance, there are colloquial subtleties that apply to its interpretation.

If you haven't heard it, you really ought to hear "Candy Licker" by Marvin Sease, but I can't imagine a universe where you can play it on the radio. Maybe my favorite "single-entendre" song.

All of your enthusiasm for the PP Arnold song has made my day. I'm thrilled that it brought out giddiness and good feelings!

Heya Sheila and Boomers. My sultry pick would be Marc Bolan singing Mambo Sun.

Good Friday afternoon all. I'm in Montreal with my eight-year-old who's in the bath as I type. We're getting ready to go see KISS (for one last time, I guess)

great choice again, DJ Sheila
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Ken From Hyde Park:

Ask them to do an extra-sultry version of "Beth" tonight Geoff.
Avatar Swag For Life Member 4:42pm Rob Kopp:

Just see on YouTube that P.P. Arnold recorded Different drum also in 1998
  Swag For Life Member 4:44pm Geoff in Ottawa:

Oh, I forgot about Beth. I'd rather hear Shandi, but I doubt that will happen.
Avatar 4:44pm djsheilab:

Rob Kopp—Yes, but it's not a good version.
Avatar 4:45pm northguineahills:

Been in the interview wilderness for months, and now have gotten at least four more in the last week. (late summer, early winter seems to be the best time to apply, losing one's job in early winter, not so much).

And in 1967 as well!
  4:45pm michaelz:

This is beautiful. Before I focused I thought she was singing "slow me down" which I loved.

Any news about how the documentary about Poly is developing?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:12pm Michael 98145:

anyone see the Other Music documentary yet?
Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:13pm Rob Kopp:

@Sheila: The version of P.P. Arnold that should be from '67 is the same as the one from '98, so no need to look for that '67-one. It doesn't exist.
Avatar 5:13pm djsheilab:

Rob Kopp—Yeah I was pretty sure there wasn't one from '67.
  5:16pm benjammin 45s:

To I & Z and you my bad-ass soul brother ,T heolonius... as I said from the start: You got this!!! All my love on a frozen rope. And Sheila, you, me, maybe some real proper cows.... Dinner on me anytime you're in Philly! xoxo

I’d like to add Arto Lindsay to the list of sultry male vocalists. There’s no moaning involved, but “Blue Eye Shadow” always gets me!

Avatar Swag For Life Member 5:46pm tim from champaign:

@Joe B - I was listening to DNA on my way into work today and was thinking after Sheila's moaning request that Arto would definitely fit in there. His moaning seems a little more gutteral than sultry.
Avatar 5:50pm CarB:

Yay! I'm petsitting a Stella right now, perfecto.

Thanks you for the music, especially Different drum, Sheila. Have a great weekend everyone.
