GUEST,Ian Pittaway Why reject the term 'source singer'? (100* d) RE: Why reject the term 'source singer'? 27 Sep 06

Mmmm, we seemed to have moved a long way from the topic I started, while strangely remaining close to it. My question was, 'Why reject the term 'source singer'?', in other words, 'Fill me in on the current debate about the term', a debate which no one here seems to be aware of. Maybe there is no debate - possibly this is just a personal bugbear of Norma's which I happened to hear. Yet some interesting points have been made along the way, not the least the impossibility of nailing down language: what is a good term for someone because of its connotations is a bad term for someone for whom the connotations are different. I still think Desert Dancer (Becky in Tucson) answered my question best of all. Thanks all for your contributions.
