I wish that Jonathan Schwartz would speak louder and not try to sound sexy. He also needs to take "lose your NY accent" classes. He should also learn how to enunciate his words. Half the time he mumbles and is inaudible. Please be tactful when imparting this info to him.

For Nancy from NJ posting about Cyrille Aimée, here's some website links with info:

Cyrille's site:

Having the correct name spelling will now make searching easier.

Turns out that the album offered by Jonathan "Just The Two Of Us" by Cyrille Aimée & Diego Figueiredo is out of stock via Cyrille's site (and thus, also via iTunes US Store). Her other collections are available via her site (clicking through directs to iTunes).

That album being made available via the WNYC pledge drive on Jonathan's show was likely due to it being out of stock, making it a collector's item of sorts.

iTunes links to Cyrille's available albums (via US store):
("Various Artists" album containing one Cyrille Aimee song out of 50 total songs)

I am trying to find more information about Cyreal Aimee - I can't find her on iTunes, or in Google . How do you spell her name? Jonathan mentioned her CD "Just the Two of Us" - but I can't find that on ITunes either!

I guess you guys don't have a Search feature on your site - or I'm not finding the right page to get to it…

I am sorry to say I have always disliked Nancy LaMott's song about "I'm yours 'til I die, so in love with you am I." It's not her voice, it's the lyrics.

This is the song of an abused woman who is so under the thumb of her abuser that she'll stay with him no matter how badly he treats her. This is not a song I would play for any woman, esp. any young woman. Physical and/or psychological abuse are not a fit subject for a love song. I've seen the results first hand -- it isn't pretty, and shouldn't be idealized in a song.
