I don't like Billie Joe's thin, sharp, reedy singing voice at all, but perhaps somehow when enmeshed with Norah's he sounds a lot better? Why does Norah never mention her father is the late Ravi Shankar? I found that info a little staggering when I first learned it--and that reportedly Ravi had a one night stand with her mother, in Texas! I'd never associated Ravi Shankar with such behavior, frankly. I'd ascribed a certain deep spirituality to him. Just for being Hindu, I suppose, which is dodgy. Just because one has a vast great tradition of one of the world's greatest religions in his background doesn't mean he'll be "perfect." I'd found more truth in Vedanta Hinduism than anywhere else.
