Here's Dionne Warwick, making the art of vocalizing look easy in a French Scopitone from 1964.

She makes it look easy, yeah, especially when you consider how depressing are the lyrics of 95% of those BB songs!

"Anyone Who Had A Heart" takes the cake for brutal, masochistic lyrics.

Then again, the BB-Elvis Costello album has a whole bunch of great, dark tunes with such titles as "Tears At The Birthday Party", "The House Is Empty Now", "God Give Me Strength", and, of course, "In The Darkest Place".
