I just want Linda Ronstadt singing Warren Zevon songs.

Huh. I thought she died.

For me, specifically, I'd like to see her tackle the more whimsical and weird.  "Things To Do In Denver When You're Dead" for example.

Will she finally explain how she met Barney Gumble?

No but she has Parkinson's, which has silenced that beautiful singing voice.

Vote in better people.  Problem solved.

But you won't, because your guy or gal brings home the bacon.

She makes multiple claims throughout her documentary that she is completely incapable of singing, but in the last ten minutes of the film, well...just watch it if you get a chance.

She sang backup on two songs on Bad Luck Streak in Dancing School - if you can get Linda Ronstadt to sing backup, you must be doing something right.

My first celebrity crush. I love her persistance and her insistence on doing the work she wants to do regardless if what the people who guard the golden goose recommended. An album of standards was considered ridiculous. But it started a trend that extended the careers and broadened the legacies of so many artists.
Light opera from a pop star? A non English album?  She wanted to be and was commercially successful, but she brought people to her ideas of art that had value rather than chasing the examples of others. Some artists change their careers by affecting a new image. Linda changed by presenting more of what made her want to  become a musical artist. We got to see more of what she was about, and a lot of us loved that.
