Tanya Tucker, at 13, sounding like a middle-aged junkie who's almost given up on the world, with a song that won't die (not in my head, anyway). And it comes complete with a full-tone* modulation at 1:15, in case Mr Wadsworth drops by. I don't call it a gear-change because it seems to work, almost to be required*.
*I think. I'm open to correction.
And as an extra, this one, a simple but powerful story that only that young, raddled voice could tell.
