    I forgot and looked out last night by mistake at the moon. It was well worth it, it was glowing as if it had a light inside it. Stunning. If tonight’s supermoon can beat that, it will be a wonderful sight.

    Betty- Anne is one of five Kiwi female singers who’d leave Lorde in the dust vocal wise.
    Lorde does have talent, and more than a little luck. But music ain’t it.

      Plenty of people disagree with you on that one, including those who have given her awards.

    • Lorde is a pretty amazing composer Corky

        I don’t rate her, Musos I know don’t either. Neither does the NZ record producer who said he had thirty Lordes on his books. However,her talent is making the best of what she has. Knowing her audience. Realising the world is ready for a change from girls with limited talent, having their nickers stuck up their arse hoping eye candy will keep them relevant.

        I don’t want to sound like a Lorde hater…I’m not. And as Kitty says, she has won many awards. So she is probably the most successful music star we have produced.

        A similar scenario existed between Elvis and Roy Oberson. Elvis himself said Roy had the voice he wanted. Roy’s musicianship left Elvis for dead. The problem was Roy looked like the arse end of a Pitbull, moved little on stage and always wore black if I remember correctly.

        Elvis, conversely… well, there was no comparison. Elvis was it…sooo coool.
