Marianne Faithfull - Ruby Tuesday (1995)
I've always had a soft spot in my heart for singers who sing in tones that are less than pleasing to the ear while delivering the musical idea with great enthusiasm and sincerity. It seems to me that while Marianne Faithfull's voice got rougher than prudence usually allows, she became a more effective singer, a "better" singer.
Nice video here, too. It's always nice to see Catherine Deneuve, and the 1965 edition was particularly attractive. Seen here in "Repulsion," directed by Roman Polanski.
