She sits on a big cliff in Germany called The Lorelei, at a dangerous narrow place on the Rhine River and combs her alluring tresses, mourning her lost love, which strikes me as a tremendous waste of a woman’s time, but then I can’t say I miss anyone who’s ever left me or died, so I can’t relate. Apparently this woman has a voice Beverly Sills would give her two left teeth for.
