    Amazing thing is her voice stayed pretty much the same to the very end. Last time she performed was 2017 and sounds pretty much the same when it comes to tone and phrasing. Same keys too. None of that "tuning down for old pipes" business. RIP

    Iconic song. You know it's an iconic song when its the only one you're know for and you're asked to perform it around 10,000 times. Musta been associated with some sort of phenomenon.

    I remember when she was the permanent host for Midnight Special, which is ironic considering how unmemorable those shows were. RIP, though I'd have put money on her having already RIP'd.
