leave a comment »

Here are some of the songs I talk about in my paper for Digital Theory from Spring 2009, about Body and Mediated voice.   Note that in the paper I address specifically the recorded songs themselves and, for the most part, ignore the performances outside of the voice.

The Chipmunks- “The Chipmunk Song (Christmas Don’t Be Late)”

Alvino Rey and ‘Stringy,’ the Singing Steel Guitar

Kraftwerk- “Autobahn”

Laurie Anderson- “O Superman (For Massanet)”

DJ Shadow- “Midnight in a Perfect World”

T-Pain- “I’m N Luv (Wit a Stripper)”

Kanye West- “Say You Will”

Kanye West- “Pinocchio Story”
