Song of the day: Sugarbomb – "Gone"

A couple of days ago, fellow blogger Curty Ray (Hi, Big CR!) expressed his mild displeasure at a post featuring Australian singer Robyne Dunn. Curty Ray wasn’t particularly enamoured of Robyne’s voice*.

Curty Ray politely asked: “Please, I need to hear some Sugarbomb to help me get past this one.”

I’m here to tell you, My Good Man Curty, that it takes very little persuasion to get me to play you a song from my favourite band of the 21st century.

So, to flush out Curty Ray’s painful memories of Robyne Dunn here is Sugarbomb (or as I like to call them, “SUGARBOMB!!!”):

Sugarbomb – “Gone” (2001)


(*It’s the kind of little-girl voice that can cause some people to moan about singers sounding like little girls instead of women. Although Robyne’s voice is little-girl-ish, at least it sounds much more grown-up than Joanna Newsom‘s. With Robyne Dunn, though, I guess it’s a case where I’d call her voice “ethereal” and you’d call it “annoying”.)

    Thanks! This was the ticket. Maybe her voice is an acquired taste and is unlikely to be enjoyed by a person who has not had substantial exposure to it.

    Keep up the great work Peter
