I've been listening to Richard and Mimi some since this thread started. Not that I don't anyway, but you know....just had to play a bit of them now. There's a thread running about Joan right now and someone commented that Joan sings without 'emotion" or words to that effect.
While I disagree with the thought, I have always felt that Mimi was far more the better one at "delivering" the song. You hear the story in her voice. Its a quality that I find hard to describe, but like other things, easy to accept. All you have to do is listen.
