I don't know why, but I really like the contrast of sludgey/grungey music with smooth pretty female vocals on top.

(this one isn't quite as grungey, but her voice is incredible, wish I could find a live video of this song, serious goosebumps moment, and I'd love to do a heavier cover of it some day if I could find someone with the right voice...actually, Flyleaf covering this would be pretty amazing)

^ Cool :yesway: Some friends of mine are going to see them in Thunder Bay tonight, which is what got me started on this :lol:

The only one of these I like is the Holly McNarland one. It's honest, no annoying emo-twinge in her voice. The Jucifer one wasn't terrible either.

The chick from Die Mannequin wishes she was Siouxsie Sioux.

A lot of those are a little too pop-punky for my tastes, but there is something pleasant about a nice female voice used over crunchy guitars in a non-Lacuna-Coil, non-Evanescence kind of way.



The rest of these probably deviate a bit from what you're talking about, but they're neat, anyway.

I forgot Auf Der Maur :yesway:

And while the rest of those are definitely a bit different from what I was thinking in my original post, they don't suck :yesway:

That Bjork/Skunk Anansie video reminded me of this:
