Streisand : My Music Is Boring

Streisand: Own songs 'boring'
Wednesday, September 24, 2003 Posted: 9:13 AM EDT (1313 GMT)


LOS ANGELES, California (Reuters) -- Barbra Streisand says she finds listening to her own songs is so boring that it was one of the reasons she gave up public performances three years ago.

Streisand, 61, told Reader's Digest in an interview for its October edition that once she has recorded an album, she is so sick of the music that "I never listen to my records for maybe 10 years."

"Really, I just get sick of it. That's why I gave up concerts -- in addition to having stage fright and the exertion of singing 30 songs a night. It's boring to sing your own songs," she said.

Streisand bid farewell in September 2000 to her sell-out career as a public performer but she emerged last year to sing at a Hollywood fund-raiser for her friends in the Democratic Party.

A new album, "The Movie Album" -- her 58th recording -- is due in stores in October. But Streisand told Reader's Digest she doubted whether she would embark on any more public concerts.

"It's fun to create a show and direct it and conceive it -- except that you have to do it, you have to perform it. I never think of that until it's too late," she said.


At least Barbra Streisand and I finally have something in common...we both think her songs are boring, worthless crap.  Big grin

My god, she actually learned something the rest of us knew for years!

I suppose the excitement of listening to your old songs doesn't compare to sueing evironmentalists.

Unfortunately, I think she still suffers from the delusion that she actually matters these days.

With 58 albums under her belt and dozens of awards---Grammy's, Tony's, Emmy's, and Oscar's and whatever....I'll give her a lot of respect. She's accomplished more in her musical/theatrical/movie life than most of the performers in the last two decades--combined.

I'll agree about the politics...who cares.
