I'm actually surprised she hasn't shown up one of those singing competition shows. She had a great voice and some catchy songs. Too bad she burned out so quickly. I enjoyed her music in the 80's, but I haven't thought about her in years.

I wouldn't say Sheena burned out quickly. She had a solid decade of hits, then moved on to doing theater. 10 years of scoring hits is pretty uncommon for the average pop star. Paula Abdul certainly didn't last more than 4 years.

I can't remember which season it was, but one year on American Idol, the contestants either had a Paula Abdul night or at the beginning of the elimination show, they did a Paula Abdul medley. (I think it was that.) At the end of the performance, they all tried to get Paula to come up and sing with them and she refused. They kept insisting and it was getting super awkward and you could see how nervous she was that she might have to sing live. In the end she was able to wiggle out of it, but it was a pretty funny moment.

I said this in another Sheena Eason thread a year or two back.
One of the keys to her success was that her voice was a bit on the bland side, which in practical terms, meant that she could sing a variety of flavors of pop, and it would work...from light country (We've Got Tonight, Almost Over You), to New Wave-ish pop (Telefone), to R&B-lite (The Lover in You), it was one of those voices you could plug into nearly anything and make it work.
Although nobody was ever going to mistake her for Chaka Khan when it came to the hardcore funk...which is why she had Prince help her with the heavy lifting on those hits.
And to her credit, she wisely never tried to sound "country" or "R&B" or "New Wave". She just did her thing, and it seemed to turn out OK.
And I believe the reason Prince chose as his duet partner had a lot to do with the fact that she is tiny. A good 2 or 3 inches shorter than him, so he didn't have to worry about looking like a midget when they were onstage together.
|by Anonymous||reply 134||September 10, 2023 8:40 PM|
Looking it up Prince was 5' 2". Sheena was shorter but that didn't stop him from being seen with Kim Bassinger or Vanity who both were noticeably taller.
As long as they put out and otherwise did as they were told he seemed satisfied.

I never cared for Sheena's music but I do think she looks amazing with the long, curly, auburn hair in the video R43 posted

I really am a Sheena Easton Stan. Have been since I was 11 yrs old (1984).

We've had enough threads on her that I think she has reached DL icon status - which when you think about isn't that high a standard to meet. Regardless I love Sheena. She was at Mount Airy Casino last month but I couldn't find a date and am not one to go to concerts alone.

She still seems to have a lot of fun in her concerts, so more power to her!

R141, I still love that song painful Princessa-, penned rap and all - she sounds horny and the production is solid despite being relatively no name
As I'm subjected to the Abdul run of hits at work daily, what stands out is the fact that despite the whole project's initial push to black radio via the LaFace song (Knocked Out),it was ultimately the Oliver Lieber and Elliot Wolf tracks that sold it, and they were much more (straight up) pop, unashamedly so.

Sheena should have starred in the remake of Sheena of the Jungle. It could have been a musical.

R113, Ricky also was in "Evita." Now, he's no Pavarotti (who is?), but he's light-years better than Paula!

By all means, somebody who literally could not sing at all would have done it better. Are you retarded? Even Janet Jackson was a better singer than Paula Abdul, and Janet Jackson can't sing for shit.

Her voice was quite shrill and didn't have a lot of fullness. Ironically, as she's aged and her voice has lowered, I think she's much more pleasant to listen to.

Her voice wasn’t shrill except in a handful of early tracks.
