The Sound of My Voice – 8

A total upper of a movie. Her current Parkinson’s aside, Linda Ronstadt was presented as having a charmed life: great voice, wonderful friends, happy relationships, good career moves. And with it all, she was humble. None of the preening, drugs, breakups, bad managers and falls from grace that marked every other rock bio seen lately. Her songs never sounded better and her cast of admirers was a good bunch: Jackson Browne, Cameron Crowe, Emmylou Harris, Waddy Wachtel, et al. I’m not sure how historically accurate the story was – I seem to remember her being immensely popular when the film suggested she was struggling or little-known – but when you’re smiling all the time, who cares?
