Marvin Gaye and The Stone Roses: The eclectic tastes of Sharleen Spiteri

Sharleen Spiteri, Mail Online, April 28, 2013

The Texas frontwoman on why Let's Get It On is her favourite album of all time, the French movie that recently made her cry and the best concert she ever saw



There’s something special about seeing a real  work of art for the first time that you’ve only previously known through seeing it in books or magazines. I first saw Edgar Degas’ Dancing Girls in print at the age of seven because I was really  into ballet. I got to see the actual painting when  I was 12 and the depth of it just astonished me. Recently I bought an amazing pencil drawing of Judy Garland by the illustrator Nina Fowler. She captures the pain  and loneliness in Garland’s life so exquisitely.
