The voices of the characters are something that I know in my own head, but I’m sure that they are different in yours, dear reader. I think Carol’s voice has been mentioned a few times as being good, and she sings on a couple of occasions, but I’ve never really nailed down exactly what she sounds like in my head. The page title is a clue for anyone who cares enough to go looking. It actually took me years to figure out who I was thinking of when I thought of these particular renditions of torch songs. Having heard them with no artist name given I just had to guess & hope I might get lucky. Eventually I did & I realized that Julie London was the voice I had been remembering. A more modern similar type would be Kathleen Turner, although she didn’t do any singing as far as I know. Amy Irving is similar, but a little higher pitched than what I think of. Very similar though. The last two names were, of course, the two voices of Jessica Rabbit in Who Framed Roger Rabbit, but I don’t hear Carol’s voice as that perpetually sexy voice, but as the regular speaking voice as heard in Romancing The Stone. A voice capable of making a witty comeback venomous.
Of course her voice in my head isn’t exactly any of these, they’re just as close as I can find as examples. Because I read all the character’s in my head with the tone, in some odd way, of my own voice. My inside head voice, not my out loud voice. Which are different. My actual speaking voice has kind of a nasal almost lisp & an accent, but my head voice doesn’t. Probably because it doesn’t require me to breathe.
